Just got your PM, thanks.

Here is a link to the 180 kit

And to the big valve head as well.

I'm waiting to hear about the kit from someone that put it on their KLX150. There is a forum (asian) for guys that SM the little machines.

I was thinking the air box mod and pipe might be first. That should open it up and take a couple pounds off too. I'll find some new jets for the stock carby. It first needs to be ridden. Then we'll see about appropriate mods.
990SMT, 640A, TXC450, TE510, ATC350X, ATC200ES, 550MXC, BW200. Need more space in garage.

Another inmate, ZIGGYND, over on the Long term KLX250S review thread has checked this out here...unfortunately, the answer is no, the KLX250S tank is not even close to fitting on the KLX140L .

Although it appears that angles are similar between the two, that is about the only thing that is remotely close. The 140's frame where the tank sits is shorter and narrower preventing the larger tank from seating any closer than in the picture. The mounting locations between the 2 are reversed (250 screw is on lower end of tank, 140 is on top end of tank). Even with the tank sitting on top of the triples the rear part protrudes past where the 140 tank attaches pushing the seat (which isn't a direct fit to the tank) back too far to be attached at the rear mounting location.
IMO it might be easier to mold a new tank from scratch than to start with the existing klx250 tank. It would have been nice to find a new home for all of those stock tanks sitting in peoples garages, but I guess we'll have to keep looking.
