after asking here and applied racing;getting the same response, that i can change out the whole front clip to my 03 forks(steering stem is the same) i think thats what i'm gonna do. now your all saying why in the heck would i want to do that? after some intense research and alot of conversating with my suspension tuner@ get real racing. we both agree that my 03 kayaba works forks are gonna be far better than what anyone can do with the 05's (for offroad anyhow) they don't even make a spring over .48 for one thing(according to factory connection) i have .52's in the 46mm and need every bit of that. so what's a set of brand new(less than 5 mi) 05 yz450f aoss forks worth? i'm guessing they might be of interest to the 04 yz's and even 05 wr's for that matter as they will slip right into the same triple clamps as the older 48's. if they aren't worth much alone i'll put them on the 04 wr i'm selling.
