changes between 2002 & 2004?
 
Hey everyone.. can anyone tell me if there was any changes on the bike between 2002 and 2004? I have a guy who has a new set of pipes for his bike that was a 2002 but it got totaled so he never installed them.. I can get them cheap if they would fit my bike that's a 04.. thanks for any help

I think color it the major (maybe only) difference. At anyrate, the pipes will fit if both bikes are VN750s

Yup.. the pipes will fit.

I have stock pipes from an 04 on my 85 700. Most things are interchangeable for the 20 some year run - there's a list somewhere and it's mostly color/ chrome.

Ah yes, the different years list.

It's not completely up-to-date, but just about......
