Are these both stock levers?

I happened to notice on my new to me 2009 Versys that the lever adjustment mechanisms (knobs, plastic cam vs metal) and the levers themselves (clutch has a breakaway mark, brake does not) are quite a bit different between left and right. I'm curious if this is normal or if one has been replaced... Can someone with stock levers compare to theirs please? Thanks!

They look just like the ones on my '09. Possibly one of the small changes introduced on that model.

DEFINITELY the brake lever matches my '09 lever on my '08. However, doesn't match my '08 clutch lever.

Thanks guys! No evidence that either has ever been changed, just seemed weird they would be so different, but I haven't had a Kaw since the 70s..

And one thing to keep in mind is that the clutch lever is different from the 2008 to the 2009. I found out when the Kawa parts person ordered me an 08 one for my 09.
