what parts from the ex250 can I fit on my ex500?


I noticed that the rear tire is a bit taller, will it hinder the bike's ability to corner/ lean?
rear hub seems the same, made me wonder what all would fit.

mainly interested in chassis parts.

If you have the time and talent, anything can be made to fit - but I'm guessing you guys are looking for bolt-on. Also, you have two generations of EX500s and what, three generations of 250s? Coming up with interchange would be possible, but not practical.

It also depends on which EX500 were playing with. Gen1 have 16" wheels and gen2 with 17s are quite different. If you have a '94-'09, I believe someone swapped the swingarm and wheel from a '99-'05 ZR-7S 750 on. Took a bit of fitting, but you end up with a stronger swinger and substantially wider rear wheel.

I own both Gens of EX500s, and a 1st gen 250.

I've noticed that some suspension parts will swap, but wheels won't, not without some work.

Are there any parts you're looking at? Also @InvisiBill has done a lot of research on this subject.
