A little more measuring revealed that even lowering the tank with the heat gun won't make the plastic line up.  I think Pro Circuit spaced the subframe back at the top so the plastics will line up.  I'm actually going to try to call them tomorrow and see if they will reveal some secrets of the swap.  If not, I may just wait until their kit comes out since I have all the stuff already.  No sense tearing stuff up just to try to reinvent the wheel.
The more I think about it, the more I think that that I need to heat the tank and space the subframe.  I may try that before giving in and calling PC.  It would feel a lot better to figure it out on my own.   Like a blind squirrel finding a nut.  grin

I got my Dirt Bike in the mail today, and low and behold it has an article on this very conversion.  It confirms that they used 250F parts, that the subframe has to be moved out at the top, and that the tank was not modified.  I am going to try to fit my parts to my 2005 KX 125 to see if that makes any difference in tank fitment, otherwise I am going to heat mine.  

Here are some new pictures they didn't show in the e-mail.  They did there top subframe spacing bracket exactly how I was going to do mine.  It's nice to know I'm on the right track.

Looks like they have a pretty good build up off the airbox to get it in position also

I should know more about it next week.  The airbox and cover were back ordered; they finally shipped out today.

So I tried the conversion on my 125, and it was about the same as my 250.  I think I will need to just heat the tank a little bit to get it to fit correctly.  It's a little off at the back tank bolt.  Anyway, here's everything on my 125:



The rear end appears to be a little low because the front is up in the wheel chock.

Photobucket declared war on people using their site to link pictures on websites, even though they clearly offer the service.  If you follow the link, it lets you know that you can restore the link for the low, low price of $399 per year.  No other options, just a $399 plan.  Most people are going to start using Imgur or another site that isn't greedy and evil. 

I'm going to fix the links on my story soon so that you can see what's happening again.  Unfortunately I have over 400 links to fix.   shocked

Sorry, life keeps getting in the way.  That and my nearly 400 picture links to fix.   grin  I am going to try to get something written up on Friday for posting via Imgur, and I'm going to need some examples.  I will work on this thread, my aluminum build thread, and my 2003 500 conversion first.  Stay tuned.

I'll give that a try as well; it's good to have choices. Thank you Rosstius.
