    you are talking about the plastic heelgaurds, not the metal floorboards ?
    I don't believe either changed from pre 03 to 03-06,
    only the ..... front hood/headlight, TORS/CDI unit, 4 versus 5 wire stator, hydro brakes and corresponding parts for them, and frame tabs for hood/brakes/cdi, changed.
    everything else is the same and interchangeable.

    Thanks for kwik response

    Thanks so much.

    I see people are doing a extension on their Front A frames arms
    And on the rear swing arm.

    It gives a lower and wider stance... quite a few custom ones I saw . Ampie racing for example... which bike parts do they use for that extension

    Probably using a widening kit (least expensive) or wider. A-arms (more expensive)

    Hi

    Just type ampie racing in Google and you will find it

    How do I extend the front A arms so that they are laying straight instead of at a 45 degree... that automatically will make it wider... like this one... btw all the way from south Africa
