Be careful there, the KLX250 doesn't have a cush hub, so you may (or may not) turn it into a pile of twisted metal under the torque of the 650.

Nice work.

If you still have the stock bracket, you could use a 2007 KLX250S headlight shroud, which is white, and would fit the headlight a bit better - if you wanted it to look... integrated.

You could, if you wanted to spend the money, get a programmable CDI and put the rev limiter at whatever RPM you want. That doesn't change the red line on the tach, but it's half of what you wanted.

That whole screen does unbolt and come right out (would make cutting the screen much easier) - not sure if you are already aware of that. It's tricky to get to all the nuts, but is doable.
