Difference between the 04, 05 and 06 R1's

A friend of mine is obsessed with the R1 and is looking to buy a used one. He asked me which year has the best make and reliability. Me being a Suzuki fanboy have no clue about the R1.

Basically he really really really want to have those predator headlights.

So which year would you recommend and why?

4 those of you who care he is currently riding a 02 GSX-R 750.

I'd keep the gsxr750. I had an 00 750 I liked better than my 05 R1. I like the 03 R1 the best. Smooth power all the way through. The 05 had no mid range. I think 04-06 were all the same.
