I know they changed some things from 2004 - 2004.5 - 2005 but I never knew what they were. Hopefully someone else does. Good luck.

I'd ask this in the Polaris ATV section. You might get a better response.

They probably made it a inch or 2 wider on 05. You can probably make it work but you will have to lower your shocks to compensate for the difference as well as do something about the axles and the rear of the machine. What was wrong with the old a arms
