Fairing/cowl differences between pre 06 and o7 up?

I need to replace the main upper fairing/cowl on my 08 wee due to a crash and am trying to do it with a used one. I notice that they list the 04-06 part number as being different from the 07 up part number. However the 04-06 part number has now been replaced by the updated 07 up part number. So obviously you can put the newer cowl on the older bike. But is it vice-versa? Does anyone know what the changes to the cowl were in 07?
Thanks
Roy

I'd start here with online parts for the Suzuki, Hinshaws Motorcycle Store, Honda, Yamaha, Suzuki, Kawasaki, Victory, KTM
This may not tell and show all the differences, but it will help. Study both, I've learned a lot from parts diagrams.

Sometimes the part number changes because of a new supplier, change in factory, etc.. The cowl parts on the Wee are interchangeable through the years except for color and sticker on the sides.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. 2012 DL650A is just getting started.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014+ DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012+ DL650s
See http://www.stromtrooper.com/general-...nicknames.html
