03 KTM 450 EXC as a Dual Sport??

Got a chance to buy a very clean, low milage 03 450 EXC and I want to install whats necessary to get tags for it. And I want to make a dual sport out of it.

It already has a bigger tank, Not a long distance DS, but a quick 20 miles to the trails and ride all day. I just sold my 690, so I need a quick fix till I get the funds for a new 690, which may be this fall.

Is it worth it or do without and save my $$'s

Worth it to me enough that I am considering selling my much loved 640 Enduro. I literally have not ridden it this entire summer. Since I got the 525 sorted and plated it has become my go to bike for everything.

If I were planning to ride over the horizon and not come back for a a few weeks then maybe my 640 might get the nod. But maybe not. For my day tripping dual sport rides to trails and around town the EXC is simply more fun.
525EXC, 640 Enduro, XT200
