all the cycle parts, but you cant put a 400 top end on a 250!
in sidecars, no one can hear you scream!

everytghing will swap even teh engines have the same mount s- the 250 was sleeved down 400 hence why it was so over engineered
...I've been down many a road in my lifetime, but the one I am on now suits me best...at least for the present!

nearly everything but the 400 is twin disk at the front (that would mean forks have extra mount for caliper on a 400 etc and I'd treat 250 and 400 engines / carbs as seperate entities to swap as complete units. Other than that pretty much the same I think.

Seats and rear plastic slightly different between standard and deluxe as well so any standard rack does not fit a deluxe. Only other difference is that early ones had kick and electric whilst the later ones had electric only.

All tanks take either a left or right handed key - the pattern on them does not matter so if you get a spare/replacement tank don't muck around trying to change the lock barrel. Bottom back left of tank can rot through from inside to out - look for telltale yellowinsh stain under paint. Seats split all the time.
Standard 2-1-2 exhaust rots away at balance box most will have a motad 2-1 fitted.

Also if you lose key take off headlight locate white 6 way connector split and jump centre 2 pins - it will not work exactly as if you had put the key in and turned it on.

Another BIG suggestion - if it has the OE sump plug/oil filter centre replace with an after market one - the originals have a 12mm head which WILL round off and the replacements are 14mm or even 17mm
