Older models may have been upgraded by now but '98 models had braided brake & clutch lines where the earlier had rubber lines. Wiring is slightly different (due to the new regulator) and 'charge' light is no longer connected to anything.

According to the owners manual (at least mine) they have the later 520w alternator - but in reality they don't and still use the 350w. :(
