I'll see if anyone else from Europe spot checks that for us and then drop it if not - I can see why - the XR sorta takes the place of that bike marketing wise...

Not sure if it's relevant or not, but 2005 was also the last year for straight cut gears in the transmission.

2008

Only year black motor on 1200R (???)

My 2007 has a black motor, so that's incorrect.

I could be wrong, but, I think the 2006-Newer had the black engines, and the earlier R's had gray ones.

edit: Yep, that's already on the list.

Cheers

Correct, they were silver in 2005. See link below.

Also, They changed the axle size in 2005. Says here they went from .75 to 1 inch in 05.

Yup rubbermount and axle change already on the Sportster.org list (at least I think so, I'll double-check). Yup the 1200Rs were gray motors, then moved to black...
