We'll use a footpeg for my 94 KX250
Go to KAWASAKI.COM!
OWNER INFO>PARTS DIAGRAMS
*** There will be pop-ups so watch for those if you have a blocker running ***
The next page you can either enter your whole VIN number or click on "CONTINUE" next to MOTORCYCLE
The next page has 4 drop down columns. You do not need to fill each one out, the YEAR and MARKETING NAME are fine. If you select "2006" and "250cc" you will need to choose between a KX250 and a KX250F. Get it?
The next page confirms your selection, click "CLICK HERE TO CHOOSE"
Now, the next page you can save as a shortcut on your desktop (as I did) and just change the YEAR in the drop down menu if needed. Click on "PARTS DIAGRAMS".
This will open a pop-up, the actual microfiche. Here we will select "FOOTRESTS". Another little trick to this page is: See at the very top where it says "MODEL KX250-K1" K is the model and 1 is the first year for that model. If I change the 1 to a 2 it will bring up a 1995 KX250 microfiche. If I type in KX250-L2 it would bring up my 2000 KX250. Get it?

The REFERRENCE NUMBER is exactly that, it REFERENCES a part in the diagram. The PART NUMBER is the, well PART NUMBER. Many, many bikes could have the same REFERENCE NUMBER for a particular part, it DOES NOT mean it is the same part!
Now, here's my footpeg....so, I want to know what other bikes use the same peg. In the PART NUMBER column, click on the PART NUMBER.
This will bring up a pop-up showing even more information like if the part is still available, whether it has been superceeded. The red "S" means it has been superceeded, the yellow question mark will bring up all the models/years that use the EXACT footpeg. Next to "ITEM STATUS CODE" you may find the part is still available "ACTIVE", not available "CANCELLED" or in "LIMITED QUANTITIES".
And the list of bikes with the same part that I can print out and navigate my way over to Ebay!

I did find that for the kickstarter, it only lists a few years that fit the 2000, yet I have a 94' on mine :/

For your cylinder you could research a number of parts: pistons, gaskets, reed cages and intake boots, etc. You need to compare those part numbers to see what fits. Process of elimination. If everything bolted to that cylinder fits a different year, you can almost bet the cylinder will work too.
Don't forget that even the slightest change in a port design will warrant a new part number. Same goes for CDI's. If Kawi decides to change the ignition curve between 00 and 01 the 01 CDI will have a new part number. But that CDI will fit my 2000 with no problem.

If the part number was SUPERCEEDED then you need to lookup the new number by clicking on the RED "S".

I've found a number on top of the clutch cover KX080RE008635 and water pump cover KX080G and next to spark plug 1371 next to carboretta 0.082L I need to find this out so I can order his new parts in any ideas????

From the numbers you gave me, I can tell you it's a R-model 1991-1997. The case number shows the model "KX080R" also the number from the cylinder head is the last 4 to the part number for 91-97 KX80 and big wheel models.
Look on the cylinder itself for another 4 digit number.
