Yes, they will all bolt up no matter what the year is. Obviously the paint scheme is different on every year besides the 00-02 bikes. The SP2 tanks have a different design and/welds on the rear brackets to prevent leaks that were common on the SP1, but they didn't completely eliminate the issue.

00-02 paint will line up with 00, 01, 02 and 04. 04 is of course different because it is the Hayden tank with the signature, but the wings should be the same.

03 is all by itself, but I believe it was also the best selling year so they aren't rare. It was the first year of the new wing design for the bike, and the only year with the red/silver/black scheme and the new wing design.

05 and 06 will line up, but they are different paint schemes due to the small Honda wing logo being silver on one (06 I think) and black with silver outline on the other (05 I think)

One other thing of note: the 05-06 tanks wings will actually line up with the 03, but the tanks are of course the wrong color.




I'm always right.

You forgot to include the 2002 tank. 00, 01, 02 are all the same I'm pretty sure.

You missed the ninja edit 2 minutes before your post.

C'mon guy, I got you on quote there! I gave you a whole 3 minutes to correct that before I - um - closed the door.
