07 vs 08 GSA tank covers

I have noticed the 08 gsa tank covers are cut down at the top to reveal the side of the front beak. Anyone know if the 2007 covers will fit the 08 instead?

To all the guys that have been tinkering with their 690's, have you managed to disable the electronic throttle control to allow full speed throttle openings in 1st and 2nd gear ?
