    2007 vs 2008 GP1300R

    Hi folks,

    Can anyone tell me the differences between a 2007 and 2008 GP1300? I know there is a color change, but was anything else done?

    Right now I can still find some 07's and 08's and they are about $500 apart in price. I'm having a little trouble justifying $500 for a color change.

    Any information would be greatly appreciated.

    as you thought its just colour diffrence,i would pay the extra 500 for the blue,the black is mega looking but it marks real easy on the top deck

    i absolutely hated the blue at first and wanted an 07, but when all my local marina had was an 08 i bought it anyway and fell in love with it. It looks wicked in person.

    AFAIK, yes

    OK - so here's a silly question...

    For those of you with '08 models, what color registration numbers did you use. I see yamaha has matching blue/black number sets but I wonder if they have enough contrast against the hull to meet USCG requirements.

    Thanks again to you all for such helpful feedback.
