Sp1 vs. Sp2 stock front suspension

I'm new to the Sp2 world so I figured I would ask this here. I know the triple tree is different between the two models but are they are differences in ride height, etc. on the front between the Sp1 and Sp2 models? I was looking at both of mine and the bottom of the front fairing has a larger gap between the top of the front fender than the Sp2 has. As far as I know the Sp2 is stock and I know the Sp1 is. The preload adjusters are totally different on the Sp2 also. I am assumming that is correct too. (they look to be a black "plastic" type material vs. the aluminum metal on the Sp1 that have graduated lines on them.

Any clarification from the experts would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Nick
