Making your XR "Streel Legal" - Under Construction
If you need to ride your machine on the street there's a few things
to do, unless of course you live in Australia and can buy XR's Street legal
off the showroom floor.

XR Mailing List Discussions on the subject:
wait...before you point me to baja designs...let me tell you that I'm
looking for the low cost approach. You see I'm not going to be riding
the bike to work or doing extended road rides. I haul the bike to the
riding areas and once in a while I will ride a dual sport event that
requires it to be marginally street legal.
Is there a web site that contains this info? I did see a piece
Dirt Rider on a test of the Y2K XR4 that mentioned some minimal mods
from Fay Myers to make that bike legal. They even gave part numbers for
the horn, brake light switch, etc. However they failed to mention the
source of the parts to make the headlight do the high/low switch.
all of my riding will be in Ohio and Michigan.
thanks in advance.
>Ok, who has the skinny on the minimal modifications to make a XR6 street
I got 'da skinny. Four Strokes Only has been kind enough to include
a state-by-state reference on their site for making you bike street legal.
He doesn't have info for all the states, but I checked, and he does have
Ohio. Here's the page:

I do the same and am in the process of making my XR6 legal, too. I got lucky and found a 'used' Driven wiring harness for $100, so keep you eye out and surf that net like crazy!
>source of the parts to make the headlight do the >high/low switch?
Looks like FSO can help you there too for around $30:
Note that I have had no dealings with this company and so can not personally recommend them, but their website is certainly helpful and has a number of innovative products to make your bike street legal.
Good luck and shred on,

Brake Light Switch mounted to rear brake
moving it to the front soon, I dont' find much use for the rear brake.
Acerbis Brake Light
actualy a cobbed together acerbis mount with trailer brake light from Al's
DOT tires- Pirelli MT 21's
right now I am running a front Bridgestone 41 TW and a rear Metzeler Sahara:
total cost $30 out of the bin at your LBS, shitty Dual Sport tires don't
sell well and you can usually find deals
Tacky Fold-down acerbis rearview
That's it. The trick is to go to a rural area to get the inspection
They seem much more easy going.
I am going change a few things that won't cost much but riding some
IMS folding mirror dealy
Rewind Stator-add voltage regulator, maybe a battery.
Hydraulic Actuated Brake light.
IMS 4.7 gallon tank
Good Luck to You,
