Plastic fitment

What years will all the plastic "bodywork" bits interchange if a fella wanted to change up the look?

I have an '08, was looking at a '13 on the showroom floor - looks virtually unchanged.

if you want to change up the look, i'd suggest painting the plastics you have, gotta be a good deal cheaper than buying new OEM fairings.

Would like to change out some scratched plastics myself but they charge way too much for replacement plastics....especially for something that costs next to nothing to produce.

Isn't there something like Sledwraps for snowmobiles? Although, they're not cheap either, but a lot less to cover with a bike.

(Can't post links yet - google Sledwraps)
