The 05 feels way lighter, but for me it is too compact (6'3") and my legs ache. Either one is really a great bike, the 04 has a bigger tank and is really well setup for desert racing due to higher ground clearance and the larger tank.
To sum it up for you....I love my 04 and would not sell it to get an 05, but I wouldn't turn down an 05 if it was a good price and I didn't already have my bike. The 06 is the same as 05, but with a new comptuer on it.
If you really don't need the headlight though, I would be a little more tempted to go with the new yz and fit it with the larger tank and other desert goodies.
