07-12 cylinder head color difference?

I need a new engine for my 08 rr and shopping locally and online ive been seeing some with black cylinder heads and some with silver/aluminum heads.

Is there any difference or did some just come with different finishes based on options or year?

I think 07-08 is black.
09-12 is silver

At least that was the 2 of my bikes were.

Thanks for the replies. So far on eBay and Craigslist i have been seeing a mix, which is why i've been questioning it. All 07/08 engines seem to be black but I see some listings of 09+ engines either both black or silver heads which is what got me to question it. I assumed that the ads were either wrong or the bikes may have had an engine swap in the past but maybe not? My 08 has black heads FWIW. At this point i dont think it matters for my swap but its still interesting stuff.
