I'm running the rally pros which work and look good, but if the plastic gets destroyed, you have to replace the whole piece. The next set I buy will have removable/replacable plastic.

Check RockyMountainMC for Tusk Dflex handguards. Cheaper AND better than anything Acerbis makes, and you can replace the plastics when you trash em. :)

Check this website www.woodsblaster.com for something completely unique. I have them on my wr450 and have my name engraved on them. Stronger than any other.

Without a doubt CYCRA are the best protection I have seen. They are much more than brush guards and you can whack pretty goods size branches/trunks and you do not feel a darn thing. There is a 1/2 inch by 1/3 inch (approx) aluminium brace which attachs to the top triple clamp and to the end of your bar. Makes your bars stronger too. I have never hurt a finger since installing them.

I think they should, but your '04 has more switches and knobs and stuff than my old '02 (what's all that stuff DO, anyway?). I still think they'll bolt right up.

I am running CR high bend protapers, and the bend of the handguard didn't exactly match the bend of the bars, so I did have to bend the handguard (metal part) in a vice a little while mounting. No big deal, but this is where I first figured out how frickin strong these things are :)!

They are a little more, but the Cycra are worth it. I have bent every bar I've had until I got the Cycra. I put them through hell and they don't bend. And you can replace the plastic when they are trashed.

Tree branches have strange attractions to my hands so I got the Acerbis Rally Pro.

I had the rally pros, but just changed to the Tusks. More protection for sure and good price. No problems with fit or finish.
