Front axle question

What front axles will interchange in an 04 X? Found one website that says the 250R, 250X, 450R, 450X front axles are all the same from 2004 to present, but the Honda parts fiche shows different part numbers. Anybody know for sure?

Whatever that website was it was WRONG.

The R front axle is different as the R does not have the speedometer. If you install an R axle then you will loose your speedometer.

If you want to keep your speedo then replace it with an X front axle.

04-09 250X

05-09 450X

R model axles can be made to work but would require some machine work (lathe).
