Oke thx for helping regarding the plastic issue, but now i have discovered a secondhand cr125 from 99.
My bike is a wr250 from 1998 I am very happy with, but i like to know can i, in case i wreck my bike, take the 99 frame of the 125 and put my 250cc engine right in it, or do i have to weld stuff etc.??
I know about the mirrored chain/brake frame.
But does this frame hav enough room for my engine etc.
Hope you guys can help out again...

The 125 frame would be too compact to take the 250 engine. You would have to cut it and weld. Not impossible - but there again you have the drive on the other side with the engine. Things would get really complicated taking into account the shock mounting alignment etc. 250 frames tend to be the minimum structure to contain the extra size, torque and flex anyway.

Thnks Arjay, for taking the time answering.
It is what i thought.
I do understand that the subframe is the same for both.
And so is the tripleclamps and forks etc.
thx and bi
