    How can you tell if juicys are 05?

    I guess the Juicys I just bought are 05 the no longer have the split lever bracket and the cover plate on the resevoir. What other changes are there? Is the rotor changed too?

    no split clamp and the reservoir cover is not plastic anymore.

    they are also easier to bleed now - but other than that, they should perform as well at the 04's

    I heard somewhere (read it here probably) that the split perch would be back next year. I've got the 05 Juicy 5s, and the split perch would have been nice, but with lock-on grips it really isn't that big of a deal to pull the grip.

    And they are fantastic stoppers....

    What has changed that makes them easier to bleed now?
