Probably too late but the 05 636 ignition won't simply plug in and bolt up on an 04. The ignition where it goes through the hole on the triple tree is bigger on the 05 than it is on the 04 and older. The orientation of the switch itself and the handlebar lock will also be different. I put an 05/06 636 ignition on my ZZR600 when I did my fork swap and it took a few hours of grinding and filing to get the ignition plunger to engage the frame on my bike. Definitely not a direct swap.
Also people need to realize that the part numbers you see are general numbers. For example 1234 could mean "swing arm", and 1234 will be listed for other models as well to represent a swing arm, but it doesn't mean they are the same part. I hope this helps someone from ordering the wrong part by mistake.
