Question My new WR450F

Hello all. I am new here and looking for advice and experience with my new bike. I am a lifetime ATV rider and was looking for a new challenge and experience. Today I picked up a 2015 Yamaha WR450 that I intend to make street legal in Colorado. I will ride it in town some, but really want it legal for linking mountain trails via county roads.
If I'm hearing correctly I will need:
1. Horn
2. Mirror (left only)
3. Brake light
4. DOT tires
I would love to hear recommendations and good places to buy online. The dirt bike scene is completely new to me.
The only research I have gotten anywhere with is DOT tires and my thoughts are maybe Dunlop D606 or Michelin T63.

Thanks for any help!

Street Legal in CO

Sandrooster - I have an appointment on Tuesday with the State Police to inspect my bike and verify whether it complies with the regs. Trouble is, I have gotten conflicting answers as to whether a high beam/ low beam is required. I have DOT tires installed, DoubleTake mirror, brake light switch on rear brake and Walmart bicycle horn.
I will post the results after my inspection.

Sandrooster - Passed my inspection today on the second go around. As you mentioned, you need DOT tires, a mirror, working headlight and tail light, brake light but you will also need at least one reflector on the back of the bike. The horn also must be an electric horn. Bicycle horns no longer accepted. I got sent back for a redo due to the lack of reflector and the bicycle horn. Luckily, I had an extra m/c horn, wire and connectors on hand so I went home, wired in a horn, installed a reflector and went back to the inspection station.

Wish Yamaha would bring the street legal one to North America. Some places are very hard to get a dirt bike legal for the road. But any ways nice bike go have fun now!
