Parts Compatibility - DL650 / DL1000

Once again, I will display my ignorance. I was under the impression that many parts were identical to the DL650 and DL1000 for the years 2002 - 2009. Specifically, the fairing support bracket and all the plastics mounted to and around it. Can anyone confirm or clarify this? Thanks.

'08 Yellow DL650

Engine Guards; Bash Plate; Centerstand; 1" Bar Risers; Adjustable Lowering Links; OEM Top/Side Cases; EB Headlight Relay; OEM Handguards; Fork Brace; Piece a crap Windscreen; Broken Shift Lever (Tap/Bolt/Duct Tape); New Tires (but I coulda run on that plugged rear another 4k)

The 2002-3 DL1000 is totally different. The 2004-2011 650s have the same cowlings as the 2004-2012 DL1000s cowlings except for the sides. The radiators are different so the side cowlings are different as the bottoms bolt to the radiators. One model's cowlings will fit the other if a bar is added to attach the radiator to the side cowling.

There is text from someone who did a swap but, sadly, the linked pictures are no longer up.

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
