OK, so I am getting to get another SM but I do not want to go the DRZ route again. I want something with a lot more guts and I see lots of guys taking pure MX machines and getting them plated (just saw Dan's pictures of his and hers CRF's, nice!).
I am a bit of an idiot, so I am hoping someone could tell me precisely what is required. If you take an offroad bike you need to add lights and signals, so I am guessing that means a bigger stator or something to power them, a horn would probably be required to but I do not actually know what is needed.
And the guys with kick starts, do you throw on E-starts or rig up some kind of kill switch so no one can just throw a leg over the bike and take off?
I am thinking of converting something like a WR450 or an XR650R but want to make sure as hell that I will be able to plate the damn thing before I go out and buy one.
