So here's the plan...

From the 250 I will use:
Frame (since it's a titled, street-legal vehicle)
Rear hub (has cush drive)
Wiring (assuming the 250's alternator rotor will fit on the 350's crank).

From the 350 I will use:
Suspension - I understand the '98 kicker has cartridge forks and the 250 only has damper rods.

Additional modifications will include:
440cc big bore kit
Removing the "hinge" - I think a big cause of this is the 3-piece C-section swingarm. The plan is to weld the swingarm arms to the center section and use some aluminum strap to box in the C-section arms. A fork brace wouldn't hurt either.

More input is welcome, just keep in mind this will be a budget build (no USD suspension, FCR carb, or Vortex air-box [although I might build my own airbox as the stock one is clearly restrictive])
