difference between 03 & 04 yz450...help gray

3 posts in this topic

Looking at an 03 very clean...still has warning stickers on rear fender and swingarm...paint still on the frame where boots usually rub. Guy says maybe 15 hours...$2500 and probably will go lower...what do you know about the changes they made for 04...I've got one of those and I love it. I know they changed some things and I cant find the thread that list them...I think you did this for someone about 3 months ago...If you please SIR Gray.

Thanks again. Bill

The two are very similar. The '04 has the larger 48mm fork, which is a worthwhile upgrade, and also titanium foot pegs. The timing map of the CDI is a little less aggressive, too, but not very much. The '04 does have a beefier rod bearing, too.

Either is a good bike, but all things being equal, the '04 is the better of the two.
