Just about any speedometer designed for a 21 inch front wheel will work. I have a DR350 speedometer on my DRZ250 and an ATK speedometer on my CRF250X.

I am not sure about fitting the cable from a 400, but if you check out the website www.bikebandit.com you can get all of the parts for the 250. I have bought several from levers to a carb for it. Check them out I have been buying parts from them for years.

Hi Duro
I couldn't buy the frame guards either, so I made them .
I started off with a black plastic 20L hydraulic oil container-emptythen measured the area up on the bike I wanted to cover with extra on the sides to form a 90 degeree angle to wrap around the sides of the frame using a heat gun to soften the plastic to form it. Then a few black zip ties in discrete places to hold to frame. Easy !!! and cheap :-)
The rear Mitas is a C-16, really good flexi knobs and seems to suit riverbeds to mud to compacted ground etc.
BTW i'm only 75Kg and I run 9psi front and rear all the time - seems to be the sweet spot for me and gives the right amount of rim-clean.

Keep up the good work on the enduro rides .
If you want to see more detailed photos just let me know.

Well very good job they look like stock very original,is it normal plastic ( typical motor oil gallon)? I like that tire looks that it can work good for what I need it.
It would be nice some detailed photos.
