    I am Slovenian. :-)

    Full housing for rear deraileur (RD) means that house goes from the shifter to RD without interuption (showing cable out on the frame).

    Yup just the the full housing to the rear derailleur and you get an actually head badge rather than something that's painted on. Other than that, the only way to tell it's a newer model is by the badging(yeti markings) of the bike.

    Very small but nice change too is that the '06 models come with a chain stay protector as a standard feature. I would have bought one otherwise but it was really nice that it came with one.

    The full cable housing on the rear derailleur is good because rocks get kicked up by the front and it helps protect it. The '04 might have come with a different shock too. '05 and '06 models have the Fox RP3. New for '07 is the RP23.

    Oh yeah Iviguy! I forgot that the 04 first half of that year, I think the bike came with the 5th Element shock in the rear, and a Vanilla RC 125. They changed it sometime during that year and the rest of the 04's, like mine, came with the RP3 and Vanilla RC 130. Well at least for the 575's with the enduro kit.

    The dogbone is also slightly changed for the 2005/2006 models. Not sure if it's an improvement.
