Looking for side panels that may be compatible with the MT250 from other models basically.

The MT250 side cover has an oil-check window in it - I don't think any other Hondas have one, including the MT125. If you don't need the window, an early XL etc. side cover might work.

Thanks for the reply Ray.

I'm not new to motorcycles but I am new to the MT250. I started riding on an SL125 in the mid 70's so this is kinda familiar territory. The difference being 2 stroke and 4 stroke.

The bike I have has been run without the oil tank so I assume it has been running pre mixed fuel. I do have an oil tank to fit if needed. If I don't use an oil tank then a window side panel wouldn't be so important and as you suggest an XL panel might suit.

Thanks again Ray.
