What kind of fork does a Yamaha YZ450F have?

The fork was something I modified right away on the ’03 and ’04 bikes because the stock KYB was harsh in braking bumps and gave little confidence that the front end would stick without a berm.

What’s the difference between a 2005 and a 2005 Yamaha?

Sure, the fork has been constantly improving over the years, but the ’05 fork is a quantum leap, and one more noticeable on the bigger bikes. And the motor changes are slight but effective. They amounted to smoother turn exits and better control on jump faces, and I’m no expert at timing jumps so any help makes a big difference.
