That is pretty cool. Bikes specs look pretty close except for the 5 speed.

Actually, a lot of people prefer the four-speed for motocross.

The five-speed works better for trails though, IMO.

I actually love my 4 speed in the woods, I ride a lot of really really tight trails and I can kill with the 4 speed. Then again, the bike just rocks.

Holy reviving an old thread Batman! I'm on the other side of the fence DonJC, I love my 5 speed in the woods. However, I've never ridden a 4 speed back to back with my bike so I have no point of comparison.

Well, I bought the 05 recently, so I gotta throw it back for what I know..As for the 4 speed, It just feels smoother in and out of turns on the super tight trails that me and my buddies ride on.
