450x conversion

Recommended Posts

I am looking for some information on making my 06 450x a little more

race-y looking, as in a front number plate/ plain rear fender.

I know this topic has been discussed multiple times, and I have searched

but only found bits and pieces(maybe I'm just not searching the right things).

I am mainly looking for the most turnkey conversion without having to

cut/hack any parts of my bike. Is this even possible? Has anyone done

a clean conversion with pics?

Baiscally, I want to be able to put the bike back to stock form without

having to do a ton of work, or buying of oem parts because I modified the originals.

Thanks in advance

An R rear fender will fit if hacked a bit. The front light can be removed and replaced with a regular front numberplate, but you have to modify it to clear the mounting brackets.

So what you're saying is you want it to look like a R not a X?

Or are you saying the stock look is to plan for you. If that's it dress the bike up with new graphics and a few nice mods. Have 74barrio post up a picture of his X. I think that bike looks killer.

O-M, you don't have to ask twice to get me to show off my ride :thumbsup:...graphics and a little bling can do wonders:

Adding graphics to the rear fender makes it look just as "race-y" even with the tailight:

Good call asking 74barrio to post some pictures of his 450X. Don't let the good looks fool you though....That's a full on Expert desert race bike. Bad ass!! Thanks, Dan! I'm inspired.
