Gotta watch man, the body panels ARE different. The exhaust has a different bend(bends) on the 2010. I asked this same question back in 2010. It will fit, a 08/09 on a 2010, but will likely have to trim some plastic.

This is why all exhaust manufacturers have a different part number for exhaust systems for gen 3. One number for 09/09 and a different part # for 2010.
Akro showing the different numbers for the different years.

I am looking for a 2009model exhaust for a 2010model, i have heard that they fit but when u say trim some plastic i getting little worried, is it something u can confirm or know something more about it?

the exhaust store said it will fit 2008-2010. When u looking on photos of 2008 and 2010 models they look quite same.

Why

Maybe you get a deal on the 2010 full exhaust system ?
If not just put the 2008 system and no probleme will appear , b cause it's engineer to go with specific model, 2008 got the right clearance for 2008 bike, what a 2010 system maybe don't have.

If it fit and just have to trim a little plastic, no big deal, but if for some reason there's a different bend in the pipes, now you got a problem.
