Just wondering if there was a way to easily identify a SB6 Mk1 tail vs a Mk2?

Hole in frame side rail just under tank is Mk11 only.
Wheels and other stuff can easily be mixed.

I have an SB7 tail on my SB6 Mk2 - the 6 mudgard is narrower by about 20mm each side and the Mk2 tail has a pair of tabs (not really tabs but I can't think of a way to describe it).

I've seen other tails (yours) where the exhaust appeture is wider

Was just asking because Brian made a comment about the length of the side vents, and then I saw a post about different vent sizes, but every photo I've found of Mk1 and MK2 look the same (apart from the MotoCorse bikes that filled the "handhold" vent under the seat). Curious that they went to the effort of a different width of tail for SB7

I never heard the SB7 tail is different.
Is that the seat tail ?
