Differences between kle650caf, daf, cdf

Hi folks,

I am a newbie on this forum and in the Versys world, but very happy to be here. I am picking up my new 2013 V next week. Can anyone tell me what the difference is between bikes with KLE650CAF, KLE650DAF, and KLE650CDF (which is the one I bought)? I ask because the 2011 service manual that I saw online did not include my bike, the KLE650CDF. I intend to do the maintenance after the 1st year.

Thanks in advance.

I'm pretty sure it is models for different countries ie Canada, USA, Europe and California models. Usually the diffeences are very negligible.

Thanks Richard... I bought a CDF last week, just arrived from a 30+ mile ride, local streets, through a state park, highways, at varying speeds as mentioned by others during the break-in period.
