2012 and 2013 Demon Difference

How do tell the difference from a 2012 and a 2013 Demon? Externally they look the same to me.

Some of the 2013 have a different back cap on the bolt, some have the newer regulator cover but really you would need to look at the bolt to see the difference.

Externally you couldn't guarantee which it is.
Pull the drive train out, then it's obvious.

2012 (1) piece can

2013 (3) piece can

The only real way to tell is to take a look at the drive train. right away when you look you will notice the front of the cans are completely different. 2012 less metal, 2013 more metal and 3 pieces.

yep, received my Demon and it has the '13 engine.

The '13 engine would not be able to work with the '12 (QEV) manifold correct?

Is the HP reg housing different also on the 2 years? My reg does not have the 2 set screw on the sides of the velocity adjustment hole like in the Reg maintenace vids.

My HP reg only has a set screw on the side of the housing and not on the bottom which only has 1 hole besides the velocity adjustment.

Yes that is correct. It will not work in a 2012. There are a few older reg versions out there. The placement of the set screws doesn't really matter. The real difference is in the HPR Piston. There is a larger one, and a smaller one. The smaller on is the newest. The top of the reg bonnet also has 2 different versions. One is slotted for an allen key for easy removal (NEW). And the other is just rounded at the top.
