you could probably get it to work, but you're going to have to be very precise with the axle spacers because the '04 wheels use different wheel bearings. you will also have to buy adapters to mount the 2000-up brake calipers to your 19084 fork legs.

- it's really not cost effective unless you really have to have THOSE wheels.

- the fit on the rear tire is going to be close. you may have to modify the rear fender and/or struts as well.
