To the best of my knowledge, the '04 flywheel is basically the '03 GYT-R flywheel, which is 5oz heavier. That doesn't sound like a lot, but since it is a ring weight welded over the flywheel, all of that extra weight is added to the outside diameter of the flywheel where it is the most effective. Dubach Racing (Dr.D)makes theirs this way. They make a 4, 6, and eight ounce weighted flywheels and the '04 falls between the two lighter ones. Makes a positive difference.

I have an 04 yz450 and it has an 8 oz flywheel weight. The weight helps the motor to accelerate slower, making the power more tractable. Some riders feel that the 03 yz had too huge a hit and this makes it more manageable. I rode an 03 without one first and then with an 8oz weight, and it made a substantial difference. Still had sinus clearing acceleration in grippy conditions, but very fun and rideable.
