Not many. The new monster edition is pretty bad-ass though. Black powdercoated frame, green coils in the shocks. The graphics on it are kind of meh though.

Actually if you got a late model 08, like I did, you will get the same updated frame as the 09's. Just look at the main spars and the frame rails just ahead of the engine mounts. The pdated frames do not have the frame plugs and they have additional bracing welds at the bottom of the frame.

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 .

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.

Does anyone have any pics of the frame differance?
