I'd go with the 04, it has better windscreen selection. The 03 and 02 models have a completely different screen, and your after-market choices are really limited and no madstad available.
The 02 doesn't have front preload, the 03 does. I'm not sure which year the chudder issue was addressed by suzuki someone will chime in I'm sure.
I'm riding an 03 and I love it, all the farkeling I've done to it I would have probably still done on a later model also.
