I don't mind modifying battery box, so was just thinking if the swingarm clearance on the newer would be better and if it's worth paying extra 30dols . Also is it possible to safely remove spring with basic tools at home?

Pre '06 models have a different uncompatible mount, but +06 have mounts just the same as +08 I believe
You would need a spring compressor to remove it. You can buy the tool fairly cheaply here in the US, so... IDK what's avail to you.
