What are the visual differences between the two? If they were sitting on stands next to one another how could I tell them apart? Thanks.:ride:

Sneak a peek at the top triple clamp, adjust top triple clamp against non adjustable top clamp.

Or, have a look at the rear axle. 09 axle diameter 3mm larger.
