Where the old bike's frame spars (left) were made from stampings, the '04's (far left) are extruded and allow the frame to be 15mm narrower in that area. Geometry has been sharpened, with trail reduced from 96mm to 93mm, and the steering head is 0.7 degrees steeper. The swingarm, dimensionally identical to the previous unit, has sprouted additional bracing, and there is no torque arm for the rear brake caliper. The new bike's Showa shock is slightly longer than previously, and its shaft diameter has grown from 14mm to 16mm.
