    2004 bolts on 2003 etsx

    I keep busting my left ankle on the lower bolt of my etsx-30. The 2004 bolts look like they sit more flush in the pivot. Anybody know if the 2004 bolts will fit my 2003?

    the 2004 bolts are a bigger diameter, so I believe you would also need to get new pivot bearings to fit properly (you may have to phone Rocky), if fact you pay need a whole new link assembly. I have see both the 2004 back end compared to the 2003 back and you are right the fit and finish (to say nothing of the stiffness qualities of the 2004 back end) is noticeably better as the 2004 is more flush and look to be of a higher quality.
