04 vs. 05

2 posts in this topic

05 uses 48 mm forks, 04 was 46, seat is lower, less travel, tank is smaller (2.6 vs 2.1), compression went down (12.2 from 12.5) a smidge, but its "green" sticker now! I'm sure it is lighter though. Right now,being as Yamaha will have both models, you can go to the Yamaha site, and click the model, then click compare and look at both side by side. Its what I did and I decided to get the 04, mainly because I wanted the larger tank, and at 6'0" height wasnt an issue.
