    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.

    Thanks,
    -Michael

    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.
