My buddy found some Light Speed carbon fiber frame guards that are made for a 2004 RM250, his bike an 03. Apparently the only difference in those years is something about the rear brake master cyl? Read on ThumperTalk where someone was able to slightly modify a Works Connection one to make it fit the 2003, but wanted to see if anyone had any advice on this, esp since it's carbon fiber.. thanks in advance!

I think 01-08 are all the same chassis wise. The motor changed slightly though.

If you're not mixing gas, you're not haulin ass.

You're probably mostly right, but the works connection site shows different frame guard part numbers for 01-02 vs 03 vs 04-08. 2003 model had several "one year only" things

The rear master cylinder is different between those two models. I think it is possible that the bolt holes will not line up on the frame.

If they don't fit and your buddy wants to get shot of them then let me know!

I'd love a set for my 08 RM
