My apologies for that previous long winded answer.
In short, the answer to your question is, "yes". Expensive, but not "heretical".
On the '04, after cutting the "Brown Wire" which eliminates the slow speed hesitation, the balance of the power related enhancements get pricey, but they're not radical.
There are essentially two changes you can make:
Remus exhaust system
Rhinewest performance chip
With these changes you would be buying about 15, or so, horsepower and a few ft/lbs of torque. Essentially making the output equal to the '05 LT.
Aside from the cost, the Remus has a rumble that some pillion riders may find uncomfortable for long periods.
Hope this helps with your pursuit of performance.
