The 07 head will work with your 05, and it will use a piston from 05+. If you want to go higher compression, you can also use the 08+ Yam OEM piston.

There is one difference you need to know about, and that is- the 07+ heads have a different carb boot between the carb and the head. The 06 and older use a simple round rubber piece held on with two clamps- simple, cheap, and easy but they came apart sometimes. The 07+ has a flanged adapter which bolts on to the head, and is a more robust design. But, the downside- If you are shopping for the 07 head and it doesn't have the flanged adapter, be sure to factor in that cost as the 07+ adapter part is quite a bit more expensive than the 06 and older part.

Hope this helps.
