us model vs Canadian model?

On the way to order some parts for my vstar from overseas
(americas to eur)

And i see there is some on ebay that say "Important: Canadian model", and others just "V-star"
My Bike is a v-star 1100 classic 2005 mod (dragstar in europe)

Any big difference?
Reason of asking, is prices

My guess is that they should be the same with the exception of the 05 and up exhaust system. What parts are you looking at getting?

In 2003-04-05 models there is a tail light change from a one element bulb to a two element bulb.
Cal. models catch the gas fumes, and to the exhaust the catalysis was added.
All changes started in Cal. first, then went east. All other parts the same.

As an example, the US throttle cable is 5KS-26311-10-00 A. The Canadian model is 5KS-26311-10-00, throttle cable eh.
