The answer is slightly complicated due to a lack of complete information.
First, Eagle has never made balancer lever parts that were specific to any year or generation of KLR. It's a one-size-fits-all thing.
Second, what you have depends on how long you have had it. Eagle has been making the balancer lever since the early-ish 2000s, if I recall correctly. It is only in relatively recent history that he came out with the torsion spring. He quickly found out that the torsion spring would not stay perched on top of the lever. It tended to slip off, which was Not Good®. To prevent that from happening, he machined a groove in the top of the lever.
Now, then, what is it that you have? Do you have the lever and two extension springs, do you have the lever with two extension springs and a torsion spring but your lever doesn't have a groove in it, or do you have the latest, a lever with a groove in it and the torsion spring?
For a long-term and satisfactory job, you want to have the latest configuration. That said, whatever you have will fit your 2005.
