    05+ Sponsons

    Have a set I would like to put on my 04'. Will they be a direct swap?

    They are not direct bolt on but they can be made to work.

    The 04 sponsons use studs and nuts for mounting. The 05 style use a threaded insert and allen heads screws for mounting. On my 04 I found the square part of the stud too thick so the sponson would not sit flush against the hull. Instead of buying 05 hardware I made the square part thinner so the 05 sponson would sit flush with the hull, red line in pic is what needed to be removed to make them work, and used exposed nuts instead of the allen heads.

    I have the 05' hardware so I could just use that hardware? Or should I just mod my original hardware?

    I would use the 05 hardware. Getting to the inside of the hull is fun you will have to remove the resonator and waterbox to get to the backside of the sponsons.
