Good afternoon,
Had a question about changes in plastic between the 02 and the later CR250’s. I have an 02 and would like to update the front number plate and fender. I don’t like the new (ie 09-12 or 13-16) swaps at all. I’d like to just update to the later CR250 design which (I think) either started in 04 or 05. My question is this. If I order a plastic kit or graphics/backgrounds for, say, an 05 will it all fit my 02 (once I do the swap) or were there other changes? As far as I recall the only difference from 02-07 were the front plate and fender. I am aware of the top bolt on the front plate vs the front of my 02, that’s not an issue.

Yes it's all the same apart from the number board and front mudguard. Cycra sell a stadium plate which will fit. Fitting later model plastic is shonky as the later guard has a step, so you need to use spacers, and it looks like a lash up. Although Polisport have a restyle kit coming.

Thanks for the reply-and agreed on the newer CRF fenders...they look good on the bike they’re intended for, but in my opinion on a 3rd-gen CR they look like a mustache on the Mona Lisa...

You're spot on; All the plastics will bolt right up, minus the front number plate (due to the aforementioned location differences). eBay or an amigos 04'-07' CR125/250, 04'-07' CRF250, 05'-07 CRF450 top clamp (24mm) would give you the new top (not front) mounting.
