    Unless the OD is the same, I wouldn't. There is only so much tolerance in the drivetrain as far as I know and the diff on the FL2 is a known issue on earlier FL2s.

    Not quite. The 2nd half of 2020 manufactured have the newly designed tensioner chain and there are also one or 2 other technical changes.

    Aesthetically, the same. No facelift models either.
