Look at the two

Mounts are in different locations, looks like the tank is different as well. Frame is different on the two so putting the new tank on the old bike looks like a no go...

Looks like a shitload of work if you ask me.

WHY?! I would give my left nut to be able to put my old 2006-2009 plastics on my 2010. I hate the way that new crap is shaped.

exactly what I was thinking! The new bikes look fine from the sides, but I hate the shrouds when Im sitting on the bike, they look like devil horns.

I had a "modded to the hilt", well cared for 2006...and if she turned like the 2010, I'd have it back in a heartbeat. But no combination of suspension, clamps, links, or tires could make that ill-turning bike anything like this new one.
