i thought the 06 and up was better. but that could just be cause thats what i have
The 04/05 have the same size valves as the 06-09, the only thing they changed in the valve department is in 06 they went to ti intakes and went from 5.5 stem dia on the ex to 5.0, they both use the same size though 36mm intakes and 30mm ex. The 06 does have higher compression than the 04/05 the 06-09 has a lot better carn and ignition stock. I have a 07 mx bike and went back to the 05 because once built it has smoother power with more tq and a better tranny. The 04/05 has a better from end also. I like the 05 motor better myself but thats just me.the 04/05 have bigger valves stock. so when modded to plus ones on ex you are gonna be better than the 06 even if he gets bigger ones. thats why the compression is higher on the 06 . they robbed from valves and gave to compression. high compression piston and valves and 04/05 faster than same 06 and up.
yes joe byrd does run 05 stuff ,lots do !
the 05 spindles are beter for mx also![/b]
No, the 06 head stock actually flows better stock, once ported and milled the 05 head seems to run better for me at leastso the 04/05 head is better however u want to put it stock :_specialED:[/b]
