450 petcock

The 450 petcock can be modified to work as a gravity fed petcock.

Anyone ever tried swapping a starter from a 250 to the 450? Or maybe reusing the armature and keeping original housing?

Why would you even think that a starter suitable for a 250 would work fine on an engine that is twice as big. Never mind that the 450 starter setup is a totally different arrangement. Why would you even want to try this? If you need a new starter, you need to find the correct item and you can bolt it in and be assured it will work fine.

I will say the gas caps are interchangeable because I'm using one now. I have a 2006 250 and I was having issues with vapor lock. Son in law loaned me the cap off his 1985 450 rebel, to test out and it seems to fit perfectly. I should add, the reason for the swap was because I had swapped tin off my 86 onto a 2006 and kept the cap off the 2006 so I wouldn't have to carry 2 sets of keys. That was the mistake causing the vapor lock.
