Seat Risers

Just purchased a 2005 and there are no seat adjusting parts to allow me to raise the seat. Are these all standard between the years? I understand the seat was changed a little on the 2005.

The 05's and new have the seat adjuster installed on the bottom of the seat pan and it's held in with rivets (the older bikes you could just pop it out). It's possible the 1st owner removed it to try and lower the seat a bit....
