    Apart from the fairing difference the Mk 2 has better suspension in the forks
    I'd rather have a full bottle in front of me than a full frontal lobotomy

    MK 2 has better fork springs but the screen is not as good I put the mk1 screen on mine the coils on the mk2 are better but most mk1 & 2 will have had some coils changed by now apart from the abs on the last ones ( black frames ) most of the rest is the same

    Mk1 is bigger as it has the built in indicators think you will need the side pods aswell as they have the airfoils

    Mk2 has abs. Maybe more wiring than the mk1?

    A lot of my connectors and wiring sit behind the screen (past the dash) in your 3rd picture
