2006 KX250F & 2006 KX450F Shared Parts

Recommended Posts

I currently own a 2006 KX250F which I really like with one exception, it doesn't make enough power. I've owned the bike for 4 years. It has the following Pro Circuit Parts:

- Showa Forks

- Showa Rear Shock

- Titanium Exhaust System

- Tripple Clamps

- Hot Start/Clutch Perch

- Lowering Link

Additionally, in the last two years I've done the following:

- Installed an Athena big bore kit (290 cc) with nice gains

- Rebuilt the wheels with Excel rims and Buchanan stainless steel spokes

- Replaced every rolling chassis and suspension bearing

- Had the forks rebuilt

- Installed a rear disc guard

- Replaced front and rear brake pads

The bike is very clean and runs very well. Like I said, I just need more power. I'm considering picking up a '06 KX450F so that I can replace worn parts on the 450 with newer parts from my 250. My question is, which parts are interchangable? Cables? Forks? Tripple Clamps? Wheels? Brakes? Plastics?

If anyone out there knows, fill me in.

Thanks.

I think forks are about all that will transfer, which is pointless as they are the same.

You should look at an'08 KX, cause they are 5 speed, KYB SSS suspension, better build quality, etc.
