What can be moved between 04 and 14

I currently have a 2004 dl650 and I'm considering upgrading to a 2014.
My 04 has Givi crash bars, SW Motech skid plate, Scorpion muffler, Givi Pannier racks, EB headlight thingo, Progressive rear shock. and probably a few other things that I can't remember right now.
Does anybody know if any of these will be able to be moved form my 04 to a 2014 model Wee?
I've tried contacting Scorpion to no avail, but they would probably want me to buy a new muffler anyway.
Any help would be much appreciated.

Givi crash bars, Y
SW Motech skid plate, Probably Y
Scorpion muffler, N
Givi Pannier racks, Probably N
EB headlight thingo, Y
Progressive rear shock. Y
And probably a few other things that I can't remember right now. Mostly yes.


I went from an 06 to a 2012 with a similar list. Most worked, didn't have hard luggage so I didn't get caught by the racks.
The rear shock is nominally short compared to stock, but really, never noticed.

Front suspension comes with firmer springs now, but emulators/whatever should swap, just remember that if the damping holes were drilled on the old bike it'll be woefully underdamped if you just pull the emulators out.

Thanks for your reply.
I'm a bit surprised that the muffler wont transfer but oh well.

The mounting points for the exhaust and bag mounts are different. The rear subframe changed so the seats won't exchange either.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s
