I'm getting ready to convert an "off road only" XR650R to street legal. I initially thought that I would just get one of the all inclusive kits from Baja Designs or Dakar Sport. I just wasn't sold on the overall looks of either of them and thought things like, "well I like that headlight, and that other tailight, but I like those turn signals..."

I finally stumbled across this after a lot of searching: wirediagram
DSA Wire Harness with Key Switch

It is an all inclusive wiring harness that is made in America with mil spec connectors. You can get it packaged with a variety of options. So now I'm going to match the Acerbis headlight that I like with the Baja Designs LED tailight and a different set of turn signals that I prefer. I'm going to get the wiring harness option with the flasher, horn, and handlbar switch already included and wired in. I'll wire the stator output to a regulator/rectifier, then the reg/rec to a battery, then connect the wiring harness to the battery so that the bike is running completely off of 12V DC. The total cost of the harness, headlight, turn signals, reg/rec, and battery adds up to less than the cost of the Baja Designs kit.

I'm actually still trying to decide between the Black Mamba and the Acerbis Cyclops. The Black Mamba is very close to being a direct copy of the Acerbis Diamond that they don't make anymore. I like the asymmetry of the Cyclops and the fact that it is actually DOT certified which could potentially be one less headache.

But...the Black Mamba is about $40 less.

Saves ton of weight on the DRZ also, the stock setup is very heavy and you need to drop the forks to get the whole thing off.

slick... did you decide what headlight you was going to get? i know we have the black mamba headlights in stock, and they now come with the option of upgrading the headlights to bulbs with more output
