Okay thank you it's just that I found one and can't afford to buy the wrong parts at the moment.

I would exercise caution. Some bonnets between years are slightly different and it won't shut correctly (I've been through this before). I purchased a 2005 XT bonnet for my 2007 BF and it wouldn't close. It wasn't until I looked into it that I found there was a slight design revision.

Oh okay thank you for the heads up I have already passed on that particular bonnet as it wasn't the same colour and to be honest don't want to have a fairlane badge on the front of my XR thanks for your insights guys
