Is it correct to say that your bike is an early model 2005 that required the ADV kit with two 90 degree QD's?
Mine was built in Nov 04 I'll have to check under the fairings.

I do hate it though when I run across a pricey upgrade that you almost can't live without, but at the same time it isn't anything that I can see or admire when the work is done.

You will definitely have the two 90 degree male QDs. That said, you can opt just to put the clamps on, and keep the old plastic QDs. You will almost certainly have cracks, and will some day develop a leak because of them. The 05-06 models are at higher risk because the tank needs to come off to do the brake flush.
