If you have a 2003, you have an SP2 - not an SP1.
That's why you are noticing the differences. ;)

Im pretty sure the SP1 is the one with brownish forklegs, and the later more goldish.

Perhaps post a picture of your bike?

SP-1: '00 model
  • Swingarm has bobbin adapters on there for paddock stand
  • Front forks are a brown type colour with blue adjusters atop of the forks
SP-1: '01 model onwards
  • Swingarm bobbin adpators not present. This was done in order to use the HRC type rear paddock stand. (I'll get you a picture)
  • Front forks colour is chaged to a lighter gold colour with silver (aluminium finish) adjusters atop of the forks. (This colour scheme was then utilised across the range of the SP's until the end of production)
Hope this helps to clear up your query.
Cheers.

Are you sure your bike is an '03? SP1's were only imported to the states for 2000 and 2001, not sure about elsewhere, but I've never seen an '03 SP1

Judging by this pic of yours, you have an '01:

I have heard in some places the vehicles "year" is dictated by the first time it is registered for road use. Don't know if this applies to the situation at hand.

I have a slight problem with this as every SP2 I've seen has blue adjusters. perhaps it should read. "(This colour scheme was then utilised across the range of the SP-1's until the end of production)" But I don't know for a fact that it's true.

And SP-1 rims (6 spokes instead of 5)

Im guessing your saying its an '03 because of the documents? Its propably just registered the first time in '03, I know thats causing some confusing in Denmark sometimes when it happens.

You're correct in your observation.
I apologise for any confusion.

Cheers.
