    Question 260 to 250x differences

    What are the differences between the 08 250x and 09 260 engine. Looking into what engine parts can be swopped between the 2 engines??

    260 has a better quality head and extra ring on the pistons, I also believe the cams are different (15f cam).

    I thought kwak fitted an extra ring to help prevent GIO on the 260X?
    Not sure if the 250X piston/ring is obslete anymore as the parts were interchangible.

    Factory I feel the 260 has more spunk. My dad had the 260lx and it pulled slightly on my 250. Is it just cams? Or is there anything else?
