As far as why I need a fork, the short of it is that I broke the caliper mount.

Depending how much $ you want to spend, you could buy clamps and 06+ forks. The newer forks are lightyears ahead of everything else. Good luck whatever you do.
That is an option, but I don't have the extra money to change the whole front end. My reason for sticking to pre '04 is that a) the forks will bolt into my clamps and in '05 the brake lines were no longer routed around the end of the fork. I just put a steering stabilizer on this fall and a SS brake line so I have to have something that bolts up to my current clamps.

Frankly I would look for the best $ deal on what will work for you and go from there with spring and valving changes as needed to make it what you want. I don't think there is any real benefit in paying more for an 03' - 04' set of forks.

Do have a pic of the forks you could post?
Also, if you are still using that OEM odometer it will not necessarily work with the YZ fork..

I haven't used the OEM odometer in a while now, I have Trail Tech computer. The only difference there is the fork guard as the inner fork tube is the same part number for the bikes.
I don't have a picture loaded online anywhere at this time.
