    Welcome to the site !! \:D/

    Can you be a little more specific as to what differences your concerned about ?? :-k , as far as frame geometry (rake/trail , etc.) ,they should be the same , so not sure exactly what your question pertains to , are you talking about swapping frames out ??

    cheers, I’m looking to install Stegz pegz, but the company sell them for 06 onwards, but can’t tell me why they won’t fit the 04, I didn’t think the frame changed in those early years

    From what i can see from their site , they mount from the lower subframe bolt location to the bottom side panel location , so in looking at complete plastics kits for 250X on Google, it shows 04-10 as the same plastic kit (UFO) , so i would guess that they should fit all those years because the bolt up seems to be the same or the plastics kit would specify 04-05 , then 06-10 , etc. which is the case for the 450R , they changed plastics kits from 02-04 , then 05-08 , usually because mounting locations change , with the 250X , i am not seeing that , you could try contacting their Tech Support and see if they can explain why the 04 is not included , but for just doing minimal research , i can't find why it would not fit

    At the most you might have to redrill or offset a mounting hole to make it fit , as i can't see it being that far off , if at all , usually any frame changes were made to the frame spar (the large tube that goes under your shrouds , they sometimes change the angle) and the headstock was modified to accommodate the steering dampener in 08 , other than that , i don't recall much for changes announced in the 250X lineup over the years , same goes for the 450X , the only thing that was changed from 05-17 was the addition of the steering dampener and the smaller gas tank , needing different shrouds , that was it

    Personally i would contact them directly either by phone or email/contact us form , and ask what specific reason they do not list the 04 , and IF it will still fit , or why they say it won't fit
