The '04 is supposed to be a little tamer than the '03. The suspension on the '04 is bigger and supposed to be plusher. I MX mine 90% of the time and I've added a 10oz bolt on flywheel weight and went to a 47 tooth rear sprocket. The bike is still faster than I'll ever be. This is the first bike I've ever had that I liked better after I slowed it down. Have fun.
