I am pretty sure they changed in 2004 to a different fork. They will not fit.

If you use the complete fork/triple clamps assembly, it very likely will fit, yes. There may be some minor problems to overcome, but I would try it. Once you get them in place, you can improve the '05 fork further by either putting spacers under the ICS spring (the smaller spring inside the inner cartridge that sits on top of the free piston), or simply by replacing the springs with something from the after market.

Your front wheel, axle, etc., will also fit the '05 fork.
