2014 centerstand, seat and crash bars fit 2018?

I think they do based on some insinuations made in a couple of posts in this sub-forum, but no one has emphatically stated (as far as I can see) "I have this part number and it works".

42100-31812 is the OEM Suzuki centerstand part number but it's marked as 2014-2015 only.

Can an end user confirm that it fits the 2018 DL1000(XT), please?

Do we have confirmation that 2014 seats and crash bars also fit 2018?

Thanks...

Meef, the 42100-31812 Center Stand fits '14- '18, so, yes, it'll work on the '18 XT.

The Accessory Bar(Crash Bars) is Part # 990D0-31J00-030 Fits '14-'18 so it too will work on the '18 XT.

The seats available for the '18 are shown for that year only--but I believe they are the same as the '17. Talking to the Suzuki rep I heard that the fuel tank is shaped slightly differently at the rear, and the seat may be shaped differently from the '14-'16 to match the shape of the new tank.
OR...it could be a color or seat logo change that brought about the '18-only part numbers. You'd have to see if a dealer or an owner of a '18 would let you try a fitment swap.

My sources are the '16, '17' and '18 Suzuki Genuine Accessories catalogs, in book form. The '16 and '17 are also available online. The '18 may be online by now, havent checked.

When I had 2014 DL1000, I installed at the dealer Suzuki Center Stand and Givi Crashbars.
When I purchased 2018 model at the same dealer, upon my request he removed the OEM Center Stand and Givi Crashbars from 2014 model and put them on 2018 model without any issues.

I am currently trying out a 2014-2016 lower seat before I have gel pads fitted ,on my 2018 bike and the fit is the same.

The only thing different that I can see on the seat pan is that the 2018 seat has a sponge block fixed to it which looks like it rests on the battery which is not on the older seat,but I did buy it used so it could have been removed.

To confirm - all those components do interchange.

I'm not really sure why we have a dedicated 2017+ subforum since it really seems, after researching, that the 2014-2016 and 2018- bikes are essentially the same; a few cosmetic and electrical updates aside. Kind of makes it seem like there are massive updates when there are not.
