This is correct. My 1992 is a UK model with 40's and the Euro switch gear were I can turn the head light on and off. Those are the only 2 differences that I am aware off... It was a lucky find, thank you for the GI that bought the bike in England and brought it back to the States. Thank you, thank you. I hope to never have to sell it.
