Also the 250 does not have a grease nipple hole for the gear shift.



Is that important?

If it has the grease nipple will it still fit?

After all it is a special so as long as it works. Will it?

So will the one with the grease nipple from the 400E fit?

If so we could use one of them if someone has a spare?

I thought they were the same other than the nipple.
