Anyone here have an F700 2013 AND an F650 twin?

Joel Wiseman correctly predicted on the forum that the F700GS would have a 12V 12A battery and sure enough, it does.
I want to fit the 12V 12A to my 2009 F650GS and I am wondering what the boys in Spandau did at BMW Motorrad to make up the height difference of 15mm or slightly more than a half an inch.
Did they design a new battery plastic clamp (at the top that holds the battery and cables in place) or did they slide a spacer in the battery well so the shorter battery sits on the spacer?
Hence the question, if anyone has both models or access to an F700GS could you provide some insight, please and thanks?
Maybe a pic or two of any changes regarding the top or a measure of the spacer (if BMW went that route) would be a welcome bonus.
I know I can simply shim the space with foam or rubber, but I would prefer a nice fit and forget permanent fix.
Any help is much appreciated.
