'95 KLX250 vs '01 KLX300 - Differences?

Besides the obvious cc difference, what, if anything, is different between these two bikes?
Will the mods common to the 300 (big bore kits, cams etc.) fit the 250 as well?

Thanks gentleman.

IIRC, different radiators, carb, plastics. There were some changes in the engine (head), but I don't remember exactly what. It seems to me the KACR was changed and the cam chain tensioner was updated.

Appreciate it Kawidad. So they're pretty close in design then.

There's a plated '95 250 here that needs work and if it gets much cheaper I may need to get it.

Great little bike. I've had 2 of them and regretted selling both.
