I have a 2002 meanie and had a 2003, a buddy of mine has a 2004 meanie. The power difference is hardly noticiable, at least to me when I rode his bike. On my stock 2003 against his stock 2004 in a drag we came out neck and neck. but we didn't switch bikes and run again.
Hmm.... at this point I think I'm going to wait for an '05. There aren't any '04s around my area anyway, and to have the dealer freight one in would cost as much as an '05 probably. And you never know, they may come up with a change or two.
