Default plastics interchangeability question

i am going to start restoring an 88 cr250r i picked up from my uncle, ive been looking around and doing a little research and it would appear that depending on years compared between the 250 and the cr500 that at least on ufo's website that they share part numbers for radiator shrouds, front and rear fenders. heres what im wondering, since the cr500 kept the same shape radiator shrouds as the 88 250 all the way up to 01 is it possible other parts of the plastic will work? the side panels share a part number until 89 but after that the 500 starts using a different number because they changed the shape a bit. do you guys think the late model 500 side panels will bolt up to my 88 250 without mods? id like to get a nice amrracing graphics kit and they only make it for the 500. so all of the graphics kit will fit except the side panels, unless i can get the 500's to bolt up. i dont want to buy them though unless i know their gonna work.


thanks for any help/advice

It sounds like you are on the right track. If the OEM part numbers match your good. But like all things, bolt holes on frames and subframes change location with change of models. Good luck!

the more i read online i think im on the right track as well. now the big decision i have to make is all black plastic white frame or all white plastic with black frame? i was going to do original colors and do a factory resto job but then after finding out the cr500 stuff should fit and all the color options im really excited about all the possibility's. right now im strongly leaning towards black pastics, white frame and gold excell rims and gold aluminum hubs if i can find them. what do you guys think? also i plan to get a black hi cap clarke tank to match
