How different is the shock geometry? Beautiful bike, by the way!

Suspension came off a 2016 KX250f. Shock bolts right up, but for the forks to work. You have to add to the steering stop. When you put the new triple clamps on. It turns wayyyy too much. Other than that the new suspension worked out great.

Just an FYI... Anyone that is interested in swapping to a more updated front forks and triples, I highly recommend Trick Engineering, they sell an adapter that bolts on to the steering stop for about fifty bucks. Good looking bike matt.

I know this post is almost ancient, but thought I would give it a bump to hopefully get a question answered. Matt...how in the world did you guy's get the 450 tank to clear the radiators and sit flush on the frame ?

hey ledger,
i did the same conversion on my 125, and the gas tank doesnt hit the radiators at all. its snug on the tank but if u carefully use a torch u can get it to fit perfect. not sure but i think thats all the same on the 250 as well.

Hey slamdmini, did you do the 250F or 450F conversion ? I'm try'n and cry'n, lol, to do the 450 conversion on my 2005 KX 250. The 450 tank slides in between the frame ok, but needs to drop down about an inch to line up with the existing threads. I'm actually glad you mentioned heating the tank, I've got a heat gun and ain't afraid to use it, lol. Thanks slam.

Trick Engineering steering stop. Well worth the $50. I do recommend using a lot of thread locker. I had issues with mine coming loose all of the time and it eventually fell off.
