Alright so i will get right to it, I have a 2000 WR400F that I am converting to a 03 - 05 YZ450f, just changing the tank, seat, subframe, exhaust, airbox and plastics. I was looking online for a restyled kit for the 03- 05 yz450f and 250f but it seems I cannot find one or anything on this topic BUT, UFO does make one for the steel framed YZ250s so I am wondering what the difference between the yz250s and the 250/450fs is? Is the tank the same? just by looking at pictures I know the airbox isnt the same whitch means the side panels arnt the same but I am wondering if the airbox and panels for the yz250 will work with the 450 subframe, any help on this will be greatly appreciated. Just trying to give it an updated look

The YZ250 plastics to which you refer will not fit the '03-'05 YZ450 tank.  The front fender will, of course, and maybe the number plate.  The rear and the sides are doubtful.

I have been looking online and near as I can tell the subframe on the YZ250s are pretty close to the same as on the 250 and 450Fs, but it looks like the 250 airbox will bolt into the 250f and 450F subframe. Think I will just pull the trigger and buy a YZ250 Air box the re-styled side panels, rear fender and front fender. I can Fab brackets and whatever else I need and hope there close. Looking at the lines of both bikes it looks like its just the frame that is different but the sub-frame looks like it stays the same. http://www.dennismot...veh1=8219&go=Go

Well, OK, but you may find that the air box won't line up with the 4-stroke carb, which is in a much different location.  

 

Let us know how it all works out.
