According to the shop manual, the only thing that physically changed from the bikes introduction was the location of the rear brake hard line and the sump plate drain plug relocation. Nothing changed as far as the fuel tank or it's mounts or sending unit/fuel pump/filter.

I'll stand corrected on that but that's what I can ascertain from the shop manuals.

Pretty sure it's a different color black. By my research, the 2005 is Jet Black and the 2007 is Phantom Black. The Phantom Black is a metal-flake paint. I have an '07 but haven't personally seen the black '05
