Well......

1-1999-2004 have steel frames 2005+ have aluminum frames

2- Suspenison in newer bikes may be better stock but if you can have it properly setup for your abilities you cant tell a differernce

3- 2014 Trannies have 6 Speeds

4- (The most important) new stickers!!

 

Really the only differences between the two according to yamaha-motors.com. Any bike set up properly will always be better than a newer f**** up bike. Unless you have all the money for a new bike and setting it up.

Will it run as well as a newer model? Yes, it can.

All it takes is time/money/tuning.
