2005 Cbr 600rr?

Here is my question. What are the differences between my 2003 RR and the new 2005 RR? Are they significant? If so ,is it an easy upgrade, and is it worth it?

Just a few questions, thanks.

The bike lost like 18 lbs. I am sure it was a little here, little there. Nothing specific that you could upgrade. They also milked about 3 hp out of it as well. Revised mapping & cam profile I believe.

Yup, this is true, but no gains that a rider like you or me would notice. The 2003 would be just as good as a 2005 for a street rider.

thanks for the replies guys. I appreciate it. And you are right, I probably wouldnt notice small improvements. However, this summer I plan to get a lot of track time in. Hopefully my skill level will go up too.

Actually, it's 7lbs per my conversation with one of Honda's reps yesterday at the bike show. But the bike feels great and is better than ever!
