    Default Upper fairing bracket interchangeable?

    The part number for the 2008 is slightly different than the 2006. The 08 model number is 51850-48G00. I want to know if I can use the 08 bracket on the 06 model? The pic is the 06 bracket.

    The model number for the 2008 model is 51850-48G10

    The model number for the 2006 - 2007 is 51850-48G00

    I am not sure what the difference is between these 2.

    The 2008-N model has a different model number yet to accommodate the R2D2 headlight. 51850-48GA0

    Between 06-07 and 08-onwards the turnsignal stay (chrome piece where the front turnsignals mount to) changed. 06-07 have two separate pieces, both left and right. 08-onwards has a single piece thats spans to both sides.
    Maybe they needed to change the bracket to accommodate for this new turnsignal stay?

    OK, I see the difference now. I probably can straighten my current one with some pliers or vice grips. The right side of the bracket is bent where the chrome turn signal holder mounts. I'm pretty sure I can bend or beat it back into shape because I refuse to pay $119 for a straight one. Thanks for the help because I thought all of them had 2 chrome pieces.
