DRZ 250 - DRZ 400/450/650 front end compatibility ?
« on: April 28, 2013, 07:43:11 am »
Can somebody help ?
I want to do a front end replacement.

Is the front end off a DR-z 250 1996 compatible with a DRZ/RMZ 400/450/650 at all ?
I have a BMW R80 g/s and the DRZ / RMZ 400/450/650 front end goes on the BM easy.
I have got hold of this old DR-Z 250 1996 (I think) and not sure if the swap is possible ?
Anybody help on the first question. i.e. if they are interchangeable then it will fit on the BM.
Or is it too light weight for an 800 ?

That looks like a RM 125/250 from the late eighties
