I was wondering if 2005 CD/Radio works on previous year models such as 04 or 03? I know the display changed with 05 model but how about anything else? I do not know if there were any changes to the interface at the back of the CD/Radio. Thanks in advance...

Physically they are the same and the electrical connections as well (except for the ANT in). The real issue is the software version and its compatibility with your controller SW. Mismatches can cause excessive current drain unless the radio is turned off BEFORE the bike is switched off.

There were two main releases as far as I know. 1999 to 2003 and then 2003 on. They are not interchangeable as I found out to my cost!
