Ok guru's,

Is there anywhere on these boards, or on the internet, that show which options and changes have taken place over the years for the 1300's?

Other than cosmetic changes, like colors, there were no changes to the main parts of the bike like engine, trans, frames, body

I think there was some change in the electrical harness. The Kury RTB calls for a different part for I think '06 and up.

Also, half of the 03' models had a fuel pump. Everything from then on did not.

I'm not sure but I believe they changed the look of the pipes on some of the 08' models. Paint codes have changed every year.

2008 got new pipes.

2009 gets a turbo.

2010 gets a six speed tranny.

2011 gets a 240 rear tire.

The last three were confirmed by a service manager at a local dealer.

Ah...I see you C guys are a bit behind...My 07 Retro already has a 6-speed tranny - at least I appear to get into it to the cagers besides me :lol:

Yes pipes are different for 08 - here..

Looks like the clayton root mod is going to be difficult if not impossible

So where can I find the year and color options? If no website or link to another post, can any of you help a brother out?

Thanks in advance.

just curious, why do you need this?

here's an idea - try the color-rite (http://www.colorrite.com/CRPLmanYear.php?typeID=2&osCsid=4507e174cc1a0809a8af917bb2c60717) site. You will have to go back and forth with the year/make but you will get all color combos. Hope this helps !

Curiosity, and being able to identify different year bikes by their subtle changes, is why I was looking for this information.

And thanks, it does help.

and a clock!!!
sheesh you buy a $10,000 sticker price motorcycle and it dosen't even have an accurate friggin speedometer and no clock!!! and they may as well sell it without a seat, it'd be more comfortable to take off the seat and sit on a folded up bathtowel, i know i did it

Hubby has an 06, I have 07. side by side comparison

06

Fender struts slightly different shape with socket head bolts
strip surrounding the oil light/bright light inidicator etc....silver
front pegs were slightly different (rubber pattern) I can't remember which was which as we took those off early and replaced with floorboards.

07

as stated above, with hex head bolts
strip surrounding the oil light/bright light inidicator etc....black

i'm thinkin your hubby's bike has a white speedometer because it is an s model? my 06 c is identical to the 07 c that it was sitting in the showroom next to when i bought it, only my price tag was $2000 less, 08's and 09's have shadow-esque torpedo style pipes.

early 03's had a fuel pump and no fuel p.e.t.co.ck, there were color additions and dicontinuations from year to year, and at some point the wiring to the rear fender was changed slightly. coontail's 05 and my 06 are identical, or at least were stock, and as i said, the pipes were changed for 08 and 09's still have the same as the 08, there may have been other changes to the r and s model, the t model came out in 08 and i do believe the s model was dropped for 08. :dontknow:

No, hubbys bike is a C model like mine. Both speedometers were black, the piece that surrounds the indicator lights on his is brushed aluminum and the piece on mine is black.
