2006 night rod frame vs 2012 night rod frame any differences?
Yes. The space behind the transmission is longer to fit the larger 18.9 L (5 gallon) fuel tank on the 2012 (change was made in 2007). 2002 to 2006 fuel tanks are 14 L (3.7) gallons. This 2007 frame change also resulted in a longer swingarm.
