I need to get some cables made for my tubular bar project, but the vendor does not make replacments for the 2004+ models, as the part number changed.

The said that if I send my cables in, they could make the new ones based on them, but then I'd not have use of the bike...

So my question is that, in spite of the part number change, will 2003 cables fit a 2004?

To add further info to this, when I looked this up on the Kawasaki site, and select the 2004 part, there is a "Prior Data" listing the 2003 part. If click on that parts "Supercession Data" it shows me the new part. Am I right in thinking this was an updated part and they are interchangeable?

yes. happens all the time. i replaced a speedo cable on a Virago 550 and the original P/N was superseded with another part, which was further superseded by another part. often times it happens when they switch manufacturing companies.
