Rear turn signal differences question

I did a quick search in here, but couldn't find the answer I was looking for, so I'll go ahead and ask here:

I mainly use this thread to determine what parts go back and forth between the DL650 and DL1000 V-stroms:

What parts can be swapped!

I know it's not the end-all-be-all, but according to that, all turn signals should fit all models.

A while ago I picked up a rear fender from a junkyard that had turn signals installed on it, and I was all "great! super!", but last night I went to check out the turn signals on that one and the mount points on it are flat, as well as the rear signals. The original rear fender on my 2007 DL1000 are recessed, as well as the signal mounting area.

My question: Has anyone had any problems/successes with swapping out DL650 and DL1000 signals? I'm aware that the 2002-2003 ones are a different style.

Is the only difference between the 2004-06 and 07-12 signals the color of the lens?

Here are the signal part numbers, they're different:

TURN SIGNAL DL1000 2002-12 :: DL1000 OEM Replacement Parts :: Suzuki DL V-Strom :: Street & SuperSport :: www.oneidasuzuki.com
TURN SIGNAL DL650 2004-11 :: DL650 2004-11 OEM Replacement Parts :: Suzuki DL V-Strom :: Street & SuperSport :: www.oneidasuzuki.com

The rear fenders have different part numbers as well.

Thanks for your input!

All Wees and 2004-2012 Vees use the same signals except for lens color and associated bulbs and sockets. Clear lens signals use a socket and bulb that are only available in amber.

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

So a clear bulb won't be able to swapped in along with amber lenses?

Probably not. There might be an earlier year model that has an 1156 base on a clear lens that I'm not aware of but I don't think so. It's illegal to use a clear bulb with a clear lens anyway.
