Hey guys I just need to know is there a major difference between the 2004 and 2005 cbr600rr to the point where I should look harder for a 05 than pay a good price for an 04 cbr600rr? Just need your personal input. I know there is a 20lb weight difference but I want to know how big of deal is the newer model? is it a whole different bike?

lets say I take out a 04 cbr600rr ride it and then take out an 05 will I really notice the difference?

It depends on your skill level... IF your a really good rider you will notice the difference, obviously 05/06 is better than 03/04.... but If your just a no0b then go with whatever you think the better deal is... because eventually you'll upgrade...

the weight you'll feel right off the bat. About the added midrange that the 05/06 has over the 03/04, not sure if youll feel that on the street. Get the 05/06 if your budget permits

My friend has a 05 and I have an 03. My 03 is a little different though, I have the 1000rr Upgraded front forks and brakes. Other than that I really don't notice a "weight" difference. As far as performance, we're basically the same.

Go for the better deal man.

I'm glad you think that your lack of "chicken strips" make you a skilled rider.
well im pretty sure its better than having chicken stripes, idk what more you would want, a video or a step by step. Clearly no chickenstripes doesn't make me a pro but, as for skill im confident and keep pace with a friend who has been racing for over 3 seasons. That a better description?

I'd go with the better deal, because I don't think you'll notice much difference.
