What is the main difference, besides displacement, between the Leader & Quasar motors. And since the 200 is a beefed up 150, do the gt 200 & lx 150 have the same size exhaust diameter?? Would the 150 exhaust clamp work on the 200??

The 200 is the liquid cooled 125 (we don't have in the US) with a bigger bore. The 250 is the 200 with a longer stroke. The 300 is the 250 with a slightly longer stroke and much bigger bore.

No, it's not. Different manufacturer, different compression rate, different bore, different composition, etc. Please try to keep up.

Sorry I did say basically. Tt has a 75.5mm bore and 300 is what? 75mm well that a huge difference. Stroke the same as 125/200.

All other stuff up to the builder?

The liquid cooled engine has a different head and bigger exhaust port diameter, so the pipe from a 150 won't work. The 150 doesn't have a clamp. It's a one piece exhaust. The original clamp on the 200 and early 250 failed often and spectacularly, often causing exhaust gases to melt the rear brake line, leading to some terrifying rides when not only were you without a rear brake, but your rear tire was covered with brake fluid. They redesigned the clamp, and it works better.
