Thinking about doing an article on what swaps with what on the LT 250/500 quads. What have you done, swapped or modded to fit, on your 250/500? Like using the hubs from an LTZ/KFX/DXV 400 on your 250/500......what rims you've found from other machines that fit......stuff like that. Maybe you had to mod it a little to get it to work, maybe it was modded a lot, maybe it just dropped right on. Post what you know. Help me write something up we can all use.

*** has a lot of info on the LT swaps like swingarms and such. I always wondered if the ne LTZ parts would swap over but it is hard to find out. Good idea for an article though

Thats a hard one. If they did, that would be cool as hell. Make updating an old beast a heck of a lot easier.

I know LTZ400 rear hubs will fit on a 1992 LT250. It gives you more wheel and tire options. I like the 9 inch rims a lot better than the 10 inch ones.

The steering stem bushings are interchangable also.

ok for the Lt250Rs all swing arms from 85-89 swap.. also axles from 85-92 swap.. but theres a catch.. 88-92 hubs and axle are 26 spline (LT500Rs also) and teh 85-87 are 24 spline (swap with banshee) also all LT250 plastic will swap around. the 85-86 seat will work on all later models as well as 87-92 seats fit fit 85-86 models. the low profile maier plastic will only work with the 85-86 seat... there is more also.. i'm almost positive that 85-89 rear shocks swap. and a arms also.. i know they all use the same ball joint..

for zillas they use the same conecting rod and intake as a 250.. but 87's will only fot 87's..

people alwasy say "i have a lt500R intake on my lt250" i liek to say

so you still have a stock intkae then.... the onlt differenece is if you want a biggercarb on your 250 you can use teh rubber part of the intake form a Lt500R to accept the bigger carb but... reed cages are the same..

ok heres soemthing else i picked up in my travels believe it or not but wheels form honda odesseys are teh same bolt paternt as 85-86 LT250Ras also.. theres more i just can't remember it all.. oh yeah i believe the powervavle actuator and govener are the same on both the 250 and 500... thumb throttle assemblys are also the same

After looking thru various sites, I've found a few items. *** mentioned some. The 250/500 flywheels of all years will interchange, though you may wish to avoid the 87 500 flywheel if it hasnt been welded or re-rivited. I'm still looking into it.....but the front calipers will suppossedly interchange from the 230S, Mojave, Lakota 300, and a couple others. This is only what I found on another site. I'm going to check the caliper swap as soon as I can dig the entrance of the warehouse open. Its pretty snowed in.

Probably get a quicker answer if you do it, ***. I saw the snowpile in front if the warehouse this morning, it's huge. My ambition dropped way down to an all-time low.

Gas caps from the Banshee and the Warrior are interchangeable with the LT250 (I believe it was *** that pointed this out in a previous thread to attempt to give credit where credit is due), so that gives the LT owners a much better selection of afermarket caps especially if they are looking for a little bling for their cap :)

I believe the calipers in the front of the 250 are the same as teh 500 but the rear is different. I am not 100% but I will check tonight.

I called a couple aftermarket companies and they sell the same flywheel for both the LT's. I havent determined if the stator plates are the same but the individual coils and pick-up will interchange freely. If the plates themselves interchange, that would also mean the CDI's would as well.

i know a kid that put 230 quadsport rear hydrolic brakes on his older styled blaster with not much of any modifaction at all! zilla jugs swap out ,a popular mod is to upgrade your 87 jug with a 88-90 jug for various reasons (intake ,porting,to few head bolts) and the power valves on the 87-up lt250 and lt500 will swap as chris said earlier.though they changed marking on the side of pv adjust cover that used to say 250" on it.swingarms definitly swap up to 1989 on the lts. t bone seat will fit on 85 86 plastic on an lt. thats all i can think of right now anyways.
