It felt like Honda lowered the footpegs or something as it was much different than my 03
The 04 suspension stock could soak up big hits almost as well as my modified 03. The o4 really absorbs small bumps nicely.
If you have a modified 03 and are not a pro lever rider, selling the 03 to get an 04 CR is probably not going to make you much faster

So more mid range and top end, so what does every two stroke rider want more of?? How about some low end grunt

i've been riding 250's for twenty years and i can't stand low-end motors. give me more top-end. lots of it. one of the tests said the '04 had "ungodly top-end". sounds like my kind of bike.
