An easy way to tell the difference between these two models is that the 05 have a front number plate made of white plastic, while the 04 has blue plastic with a white sticker

48mm TC forks

Renthal bars stock

new airboot

revised cylinder head and more cutout on the cylinder bottom

there are a ton of other updates. check out the Yamaha technical seminar training manuals for all the changes

different graphics are the obvious. also i'm pretty sure the brake routing is different. the 05 is more like the honda style and the 04 brake line goes under the fork.

Different fork boots and brake routing. The 05's have a rounded fork boot, while the 04's have the more squared off style. The intake boot is also different, along with the swing arm I believe. And as stated above, the white front # plate, although that could be been put on an 04 easily.
