Thanks for all the comments. I would like to move up to the 06' bike , but at this point my 04' is real fresh with high quality parts and the only thing left to modify is the front forks. That is why i'm looking into the newer suspension. On Ebay I am keeping track of a set of 07' yz 250f forks, triple clamps, stem and bearings complete. Any ideas if that would fit? I thought i read somewhere that the stem length for that year was shortened and thus wouldn't transfer, but i'm not sure. So if I purchased that set i might have to press on a new stem and make sure the wheel spacers align correctly, but thats it right? Sounds doable? Thanks again.
