That's cool I didn't know that even existed. I would stillikethe CBR300 will look closer to a 600 then what the 250 does now. u should wait till the 300 comes out this fall. At least the 300 and 250 will share the same frame (from what the pictures show)
yeah, but the rear tire on the 250 is a lot skinnier compared to a 600, so imo if you try and enlarge the tail piece it will look funny. there are certain aspects that you can't ignore and with a cheap small bike like the 250...it's not a 600That's cool I didn't know that even existed. I would stillike
To have the rear that the 600 has doesn't look like the 300 will have a diffrent tail. I know the 600 is wider but I would assume one could
Make there own brackets to make up for the space?
look at parts on partzilla for the cbr250. assume the same for the for the 300...cbr600s are quite common and as such are crashed regularly.
my guess is that you could find a fairing or two for next to nothing if you look around a little bit. get one and see if it fits and if not figure out how to make it fit. it's really not all that hard. you could share your knowledge and help somebody else out.
I agree... original, mostly stock bikes are 99% of the time worth a fair bit more on the used market than a personalized Frankenstein version of the same bike would be.As suggested, I think it would be cheaper and better to just wait for the 300 and sell your 250 Cause even if you manage to fit another bikes fairing on it, unless it's a killer job, you won't be able to sell the bike like that...
Since the topic of this thread is about swapping bodywork (not motors), I moved the rest of the posts regarding engine swaps to this thread: http://www.cbr250.net/forum/honda-cbr250-general-discussion/9745-cbr250r-crf450r-motor-swap.htmlI'm disappointed. I saw the thread title and was expecting to read about the motor being swapped for an XR600 lump.
I hope you could share photos, I am really interestedHi I actually did this, I bought a Honda CBR250 2012, And realize that the bike was frame was trashed. So I went online and found out that ICould use a CBR 300 frame. So I bought a Honda CBR 300 frame and transferred over everything over from The Honda 250 over to the Honda CBR 300. And it worked out perfectly everything went smoothly over, with a little bit of elbow grease with the engine swap.
