Default Triple tree dimensions...different?

Wondering if there are any dimensional differences between a '97 top tree and any of the newer top trees which have no handlebar mount isolators?
Any fork tube/steering stem angles etc. different?

I'd like one of the newer style trees for my '97.

Just looking for a measurement for offset...from steering stem center to fork tube centers and distance between fork tube centers.

The only measurements I have and they may not be for your year of bike is for fork spacings (centre) with 39mm forks:

39mm Stock 7.000"
39mm Mid-Glide 8.437"
39mm Wide-Glide 9.875"

Thank you!
I have my year though.
I think it's like 2008 or something that doesn't have the huge holes for the rubber bar isolators or the cast in bar perch.
