Urgent - Have Suzuki changed the DL1000 front calipers since 2003

Ive got a bit of a problem with my DL1000 which is my only form of transport.

The front brakes were badly binding on. I stripped the caliper down and found that the seals were persished and damaged.

My pistons are fine.

Im now searching for a new seal set.

There are plenty of seal sets for 2003 , 2004 etc. Mine is a 2005 wth Tokiko calipers . Have Suzuki they changed the calipers at all since 2003/2004!

Please respond quickly as i need to order these parts to get to work.

Thank you for your time.

Go to Bike Bandit and check part numbers for different year models and see if they are different.
