    Are there any differences between the two years? I have a 1985 but most part references are for 1984.

    Everything I've seen and read, there aren't any differences aside from colors. But we only got the 1000F for 1984 here in the States.

    If 85 F was same as here the main differences were,
    Line bored cams journals with longer cams
    Wider heads
    I think oil cooler
    Completely different fork legs and internals
    Maybe 18 inch front wheel.
    Bigger sprocket carrier

    This is all from memory so there may be errors and I'm not sure what differences (if any) Canadian bikes had from rest of world.

    I'm pretty sure the Canadian F is the same as the U.S. model with a KPH speedo.

    I think you are describing a F2 or "Bol d'or".
