2004 vs 2005 or...

Was there any big changes between 2004 and 2005 yz450f models? I have a 2004 model atm , but I got a good offer for 2005 bike with öhlins suspension that suits with my weight and riding style. The other option would be to pay a little more and get a newer model with aluminium frame. What do you suggest?

The 2004 was a bit angrier than the 2005, but not much difference at all.

Personally, I would go for a later model aluminium framed bike with out a doubt. :ride:

The '05 had a mellower engine, thanks to a remapped advance curve. Some say too mellow.

The '05 also had significantly better front forks, although they aren't perfect in stock form.
