2011 CRF450R - Possible to put lights on it?

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I've got a 2011 CRF450R. In Washington, it just became legal to plate offroad only bikes. I was under the impression that I'd be able to put lights on my bike and get it plated. However, to my surprise, when I called my dealer to order parts, they told me that Baja Designs pulled their kit for the 09+ CRF450Rs because they were having problems with the more powerful stator screwing with the EFI.

I notice that Trail Tech still offers an electrical kit for the bike, however, now I'm concerned. So, I've emailed both companies asking for more details. I suppose I should send Honda an email as well.

My question is, has anyone elsewhere plated an '09+ CRF450R? Or am I screwed.

Thanks for any and all information that you can provide!

P.S. I know it'll be a miserable road bike, not meant for any sort of distance trips. I just want to be able to plate it to ride logging roads and ride backroads down to the local track.

Pretty much everything you need to get 90 watts to power the necessary stuff. I don't know exactly what it takes to make a dirtbike street legal in your state, but in michigan that would be more than enough to power everything. They also have a lower powered stator, but it is up to you. Another good thing is that they are located in Washington, so shipping will be quick. I have ordered more than a couple of things from them and have been more than happy with the service.

If your stator doesn't output much power, Baja designes makes a kit that has its own battery you can run stuff on, I think. Either way you can wire up a DS kit and add a battery, if your stator can't charge the battery you can put the bike on a battery tender whenever you aren't riding. This would work for short rides but not week long rides.
