Are there any '09 changes besides color?

Ok I know there are 2 new colors, but it is my understanding that Kawasaki publishes a "new for '09 specs sheet" that they send to dealers. Has anyone seen this sheet? Can anyone tell me what the changes if any are? I know the Ninja 650 and the er6-n received several changes including a new frame. Thanks.

The turn signal lenses are clear now!

I bought a motorcycle because my wife said that I couldn't! Now I have two and she still says I can't have another one!

Slightly different front brake master cylinder, rounded off a bit.

Other than the new colors that's about it.

Machog do you this brake performance has been improved any or just a cosmetic touch to the master cylinder? are the calipers, lines and pads the same?

Purely cosmetic, all other aspects of the braking system are the same-still no ABS in the US.

I think the brakes on the Versys are excellent, but I did have a KLR before the V, and a rock with a piece of rope on it would work better than the KLR brakes.

Had a Honda ST1300 with ABS, best brakes on a bike I've ever had-but hated most of the rest of the bike.
