My well informed guess would be that it is pretty straight forward.

The coooling expansion tank is different on the two models but I'm not sure if that makes it necessary to change it doing this conversion.
Are the seat brackets and frame points the same? Is there clearance for the components below? Is the airbox the same?
AFAIK, yes on all three. The cover over the oil tank is shorter on Xcountry so there will be a gap up to the seat. You may need to change a few parts in the back. The rear white plastic around the end of the seat from a Xchallenge is probabably the way to go, for looks anyway.

The smartest thing to do is probably to team up with someone that want a Xcountry-seat (and with that your airbox plastic) on a Xchallenge. I guess there must be people thinking about that. I'm one.
