So I bought a yz250 (2000 model) and have seen people convert the bike to 2015+ plastics with updated shrouds and rear plates n fender.
However I am aware the restyle kit does not bolt right up to my bike and is made for 2002+. I've watched videos saying you have to fab your own mounts and buy a 2002+ subframe to make the rear plastics work. How hard is this?

There is a thread on Thumpertalk that shows the conversion for pre 02. Do a search over there. Its not bolt on and requires welding (subframe, tank, and lower rad shroud mount on radiator) as well as 02+ tank, seat, subframe and airbox (02+ or 2015+ if going for new OEM look). How hard it is depends on your skills and wallet.

I'm looking for a link to good pics of the subframe mods to put 02' subframe on.

Honestly, you’ll need newer plastics for measurements either way.

Also, you need a new tank, and seat.
