No, and No. The differences are mainly in the colors and the updated frames, but like someone already said a late model 08 still has the updated and much stronger frames.the 09 has a bigger throtle body and a better crank I read somewhere
They weigh the same for both years. The 2009 spec sheet shows the curb weight of 394 and the 2008 sheet shows the dry weight of 364.Cool ! I'd read that they shaved the head down to bump it up and was jealious of the 09. What's up with it weighing 394 now ? Wasn't the 08 364 .
