I bought a Dakar double sport kit for my crf250x, and it`s great! Works fantastically and comes with everything but a mirage and speedomiter Make your bike on the road legal with our Baja Designs Dual Sport kit. These conversion kits are equipped with a halogen headlight that includes an H4 High/Low bulb as well as a bike-specific wiring harness without the need to cut, crimp or weld for easy installation. Note: This kit only works if your bike comes with a lighting coil, a spare stator has been installed or Baja Designs` standard lighting coil has been reversed. I have a great resource to make the 250X _rig job_ or stupid without it. There is a local company in Michigan called Sicass Racing. They make model-specific wiring harnesses to make bikes for road approval. The cool part is that they use the manufacturer`s connectors, so it`s not a splicing job! The 250X comes with a Hi-Lo-Beam plug and wires, the hi beam just isn`t connected. They ordered a rear panel/stop/lic lighting unit. spare for mounting under the wing. I know. It looks like it doesn`t look good, but it`s small and plastic, it looks like a factory. The rear light is an L.E.D.
type that is much brighter than the norm. They also got a bracket adapter that replaces the front bracket on the clutch lever for the rearview mirror. The mirror can be folded through the crossbar pad. They installed an electric horn with a factory switch that also has stop/dipped-beam/high-beam positions. I asked them to wire the original tail light so that it would turn on at the same time as the brake light. I also asked them to wire the brake lights so that they worked even when the bike stopped. They also integrated the digital pedometer for me. I will post some pictures if I have the opportunity.
www.sicassracing.com I think this kit is of great value considering that it comes with everything you need to be legal. The pieces seem to be of good quality because they hold well even after 3 beds. The instructions were simple, but I still managed to wire everything properly, even without being an electrician. Overall, you get this package if you want to travel safely and avoid the hassle! „Jim has a lot of experience with the CRF250 from 2004 to 2008, when they rode these bikes at a professional level,“ Clark said. „We installed a Hot Cams Stage 1 camshaft, but we kept the standard valve train and used Xceldyne`s new X-2 range of valves and springs, so everything was fresh at the top end.“ Once the bike was up and running, Clark said he experimented a lot with the transmission and ultimately opted for a final gear of 13-49 (3.76:1), though he adds that riders who intend to do a little more road or road riding may want to fall on a 48-speed rear sprocket. I bought the complete Baja Designs kit for myself. It comes with a really cool and clear LED light mounted under the rear wing. Standard LEDs still work.
I really liked the [high quality] kit. I passed it through DMV and it is the authorized street. This is certainly the truth when it comes to enjoying off-road recreation, where the Air Resources Commission, the regulator that monitors air quality and imposes regulations to reduce air pollution, has issued strict guidelines to prevent individuals from building or modifying vehicles that do not comply with these regulations for road use. This also includes converting an off-road motorcycle for on-road use, as it does not contain the right emission equipment. And that`s it. Clark now has a legal bisport motorcycle that meets all of his specific needs to enjoy driving in legal off-road driving areas across the country. And he should know. He built it himself. „We picked it up for $1200 because the previous owners tried to do some of their own high-end work and weren`t qualified for it,“ Clark said.
„The bike was working, but not properly. They had tightened the head screws too tightly and removed two of the threads in the cases. At that time, we thought we were going to completely rebuild the engine, because we had planned a double sport with this machine for the coming years. In addition, the CRF250X is basically the same bike since its release in 2004, so we have a lot of experience with the machine and know that with a little help we can put it into service as well as a CRF250R. However, since most U.S. doesn`t have to follow the same regulations, we present you with a real alternative to the factory-built Japanese or European bisport machines available in dealer showrooms. Jay Clark of Jay Clark Enterprises has the recipe under control, and his Honda CRF256 X offers the kind of power and fun that can only come from a really dirty machine. We admit it won`t be a big commute every day, but if you live in a state where such a machine is allowed, and if only a few miles separate your front door from your favorite fire lane or one-lane paradise, a bike like Clarks is the hot ticket. Better yet, if you`re based in one of these states, you can get a plate for such a bike and be „legal“ wherever you ride in the United States. Either way, the CRF256X is a showcase for the aftermarket companies Clark works with as he builds one of his custom creations.
„Most of us work for a living and don`t have trust funds, so we can`t buy the last legal street double sport,“ Clark said. „In the western states near California, it`s not too difficult to authorize your bike path and you don`t have to deal with the Air Resources Board. To build this bike, we went to our buddy`s house in Utah to legally build the bike there, as the bike would be used there 90% of the time to combine a fantastic trail with a more fantastic trail. Standard turn signals can be replaced with LED mini-rods or recessed mini-turn signals. Dual sport conversions aren`t legal in all states – check local laws before buying. In addition to the dual sports kit, most states require mirrors, DOT-approved tires, and sometimes a speedometer to be fully compliant. Check local laws.
