Honda hasn’t made it easy for us to explain the different model names, but we will do our best.  This kit will fit all models of 250EX and the newer 250X (2009 and newer).  This kit WILL NOT fit the older (pre-2001) 250X.  The older 250X came before the modern 300EX which later became the 300X (thank Honda for this naming mess). 

The difference between the “widening kit” and the “widening and shock conversion kit” is the top shock mount brackets.  The widening kits simply relocate the stock shocks outward to match the width increase to the a-arms.  The widening and shock conversion kits provide a range of vertical locations where the stock shocks can be mounted depending on how you assemble the shock brackets.  These adjustments will allow you to use longer shocks, adjust the ride height of the front of the ATV, or both.  Some of the shocks that will fit on the 250EX with this kit include 400EX, 450R, YFZ450, 660R, 700R, Z400 and R450 shocks.  Stock or aftermarket shocks for these models should fit with this kit.   In general, we have found that the much less expensive shocks without external reservoirs (like the 400EX shocks) work very well with our kit on a 250EX, and will suffice for most customers.  We recommend the +6 inch kit when using the shock conversion kit, so that there is more room to allow the shocks to operate at the best possible angle (the shocks will be more straight up and down with the +4.5 inch kit).

Stock brake lines should be long enough to install either the +4.5” or the +6.0″ kit if you disconnect the intermediate brake line support on the a-arms to provide more slack in the lines.

Diamond J Customs does sell brake lines if you would prefer to use extended-length stainless steel braided brake lines with your widening kit.
