06' yz450f Street legal Supermoto build "The Tard"

I figured I might as well share a supermoto build since they arent too common on here. Basically got my bike registered and now turning it into a street demon.
It started out like this...
-2006 yamaha yz450f, pro taper bars, white plastics, g2 quick turn throttle tube, stage 1 hot cams, full factory 4.1 fmf titanium exhaust with mega bomb header, Hinson billet aluminum clutch basket w/ their race compound plates and disks, factory connection suspension, one industries seat cover, boyesen qwik shot 2 accelerator pump cover/ o-ring mod, excel rims w/hd spokes and DNA hubs, asv levers...
(ON AETNA MTN BTW)


Then she gets towed to the garage for the tard conversion.



I chopped the rear fender and build a nifty little tail light for it with a hydraulic pressure switch on the master cylinder.



My tires came in wednesday!



Hubs waiting for the wheels and spokes to arrive. I ordered a set of warp9 wheels 3.5x15 front and 4.25x17 rear. As well as a 40t rear sprocket.



This is how far ive gotten.



The headlights are horribly ugly but they are just for show until I find something better and cheap. The tail light is running off an r/c car battery which will power the 4 leds for days. I also did some trimming of the rear number plates. (opinions?) I like it so far.

Feel free to give me ideas or flame me for "having a dirtbike with street tires"

How are you going to run a headlight?

I found a writeup once on rewinding your own stators for more output but misplaced the link. It looks like the WR/YFZ stators are different and there seems to only be a few options for aftermarket 50w stators, which still seems small.

My DRZSM is a riot on the street and it is a gutless whore, I do however wish my factory SM wheels would fit on my CR for riding around in the neighborhood.

Not cost effective, . I wouldn't ride it as much as I think I would and I can accept that. Now on dirt its a completely different story.

Grab a 50w stator and a little 12 volt battery to act as a capacitor, LED tail/turn signal shouldn't draw much along with a Trailtech Vapor. You could probably get by with a 35w headlight and be careful to leave it on low beam during the day to make sure and keep the battery alive. In OK you don't have to have turn signals if the bike is older than 2005.

ok whew, been busy the last week but got it finished! I dont plan on powering the headlights for now. I dont feel the need to ride at night especially in the winter. This thing is definately a freakin blast! [IMG][/IMG]

[IMG][/IMG]

[IMG][/IMG]

I Went for a shakedown run and everything went good except for having a close ratio 5-speed and blown-the-fuck-out fork seals which blew oil everywhere -.- So I threw some new ones in there. Then I went to change the oil and stripped the plug. This may sound frustrating but this is just enough incentive to tear the engine down, split the case and drill/tap new threads.....and throw in the wide ratio tranny gears from a wr450

Thank ya! Nice Kawasaki btw. The sideplates were tricky, i'd trim a little then study it. Over and over again haha. I found the best way to do it was with vise grips clamped to either end of a long razor blade, but a dremel would work well too.

Is there no law in your state that says you MUST have a headlight at all times?

Yeah, tenn code 55-8-164 part b. Headlight needs to be illuminated. The enforcement of that law would be questionable though. So i'll take my chances on a fix it ticket

yep i trimmed it close to flush with the exhaust. I did it because i knew i wanted the license plate mounted low and tight, but it wouldnt be visible unless the rear fender was a tad shorter,

UPDATE: I still hold a valid motorcycle license I also tore the case apart over the past two days and put the wide ratio wr450 gears in it.....niiiiiiiiiiiiiiice.

Do you see yourself running it in the dirt again? How bad is is running a short ratio gear box? Top speed?

That's sweet. Very nice. I've always thought about doing it to my 02 YZ 250 2 smoke.

Then yesterday I saw a guy on a CR125 with dual sport tires on it. At first I assumed XR just because it looked like a dual sport, then I heard it rev up, made me do a double take. And there it was, a 2 stroke pipe. Hells Ya...
