2005 Fork Cap

I picked up a replacement set of forks legs about a year ago and have been waiting for current ones to go bad before installing them.

I notice that the spring pre-load adjusters on this set, which seller claimed were 2005, do not have the blue anodizing found on earlier years.

Should the 2005 fork caps have silver colored spring pre load adjusters? Just wondering if the previous owner stripped the anodizing off. They look like new and unadulterated.

As far as I am concerned the 05 came with blue caps. But I also do not think there is any difference between them other than the color.

I've had a 2002,3,4,and 5 and the 2002 and 2003 had the blue preload adjusters, and the 2004 and 2005 did not.

Thanks for the responses Guys. 5LV's info seems to jive with what I'm seeing.

I agree there is no difference between the years.
