    Didnt buy it from ebay did you? i remember my mate said he was looking at one on ebay the other day listed as a 09 but it actually was a 06.

    im pretty sure from 08 on they had wavey style disks and the later models have the round style discs

    If its a 06 the nut on the top of the forks is a browny colour and the nut on the rear shock is blue.

    You can call any dealer try Silvesters or GHmotorcycles.

    But for now you can tell by looking at the rear shock cannisters rebound nut, 2005 is gold 2006+ is blue. Also the front number plate is different on the 2006+ bikes.

    2005 models are excellent bikes, ive had 2. But the 2006+ bikes have the sss suspension which is the best suspension out there and makes them worth a bit more money.
