So, I've been noticing that there seem to be a few minor changes between the 03 bikes and the 04 bikes.

So far, these are the only ones I can find:

Different seat unit.
Different (lower?) subframe, so, lower tailsection.
Lower footpegs.
Different passenger pegs.
Exhaust lower/different angle.
Added oil cooler to the front.

Anything I'm missing?

Oil cooler shows up in `03 model.
As you said there are some diferences in riding position, and the black frame and wheels finish (´05 model).
I believe thats all.

The major difference is the 03's rear subframe is 40mm's higher. Thats why the seats and aftermarket exhaust midpipes won't fit the 04 and later SV's. Also the 03 has a bigger (longer) snow shovel rear fender. 03's have SUZUKI on each side of the gas tank. 04 and later just have the "S" on each side of the tank.
Cheers!
