Yes, it will fit and work fine. There were some very minor changes to the head for the '04 model year, but the quad and the bike used the same head.

The exhaust cams are completely different. The quad engine has far less power than the YZ did.

If it's hard to kick, the exhaust cam is probably too far advanced.
