Hi, I am considering buying a VTEC and have seen quite many people recommend the 2006- MY's. Often with reference to the changed VTEC configuration, but I get the impression that the newer bikes are regarded as more reliable as well. Is that correct? And if yes, what are the typical problems with the 2002 - 2005 that the later MY's don't have? I found the list below on another forum that supposedly describes the full list of differences between the 2002 - 2005 and the 2006. Can anyone confirm that these are all the differences? Although most of what the 2006 brings sounds nice, nothing in the list would scare me away from buying a 2002 - 2005. My reason for asking is that the yearly MY's fit my budget better. 2006- would stretch it, but on the other hand I would be willing the spend the extra cash if there are important differences. - New ECU mapping engages VTEC at 6400 rpm to better match the four-valve power curve, producing a smoother power transition. - New clear turn signal lenses front and rear provide a high-tech look. - New gradient on windshield for cleaner, sharper styling. - Styling on tachometer face makes numbers easier to read. - Satin finish treatment on muffler covers and exhaust heat shield for distinctive styling. - New silver finish on clutch and brake master cylinders. - Front cowling center piece color matched to body for integrated styling.
