Deciphering part numbers
Who can help me crack the Suzuki parts code? I'd like to pick up target-of-opportunity spare pieces when they appear on fleaBay, but can't quite figure out what fits what.
Ex: there's a blue gas tank up for auction right now -- from an '04 DL1000, part #44110-06G10-YBA. OK, but my K7 Wee says it needs #44110-06G30-YKY, while a blue K7 1000 calls for #44110-06G20-YKY.
So clearly the first part, 44110, refers to a gas tank. And apparently the last three letters refer to the color (although I wonder why '04 blue is YBA and '07 blue YKY; are they different?). But how about that mysterious middle number, which seems to change whether it's a CA model or not, but also by year. Has the basic configuration of the DL1000 tank changed from 04 to 07 so that it has gone from being a 06G10 to a 06G00 (or 06G20, depending on CA spec)?
Anybody speak this foreign language? Hell, I was a codebreaker in Army intelligence (no oxymoron jokes, please) and I'm confused.
Or if someone doesn't know the code translation but DOES know for sure that all gas tanks (or other parts) are adaptable to all models, or which will fit which, that would be nice to know. In fact, a complete cross-fitting list would be great as a sticky, perhaps with contributions by owners who have actually transplanted parts across models themselves.
