Re: Improvment between pre and post 2005 models
Not much that I could notice in the low speed handling or the little extra hp. the bike just doesn't like tight turns and that require brakes.
Power assisted brakes compared to the '99 you had.
Not all post '05 had xenon headlights or Comm systems.
EHCS is the BOMB! but never had a problem doing it manually (it is technique, not muscle)
