'05 and up for the front wheel and '07 and up for the rear wheel. The '05-'06 rear wheels fit as well but require a bit of modification because otherwise the caliper bracket drags on the rotor bolts.

You'll probably want to transfer your pickup discs from your wheels the whatever you buy if they're pre-2013, if you want your TC and/or ABS to continue to work.

It has nothing to do with rotors, but yeah you can use your rotors or if you get others they'll have to be from a 2013+ because they previous gens used smaller rotors.

But again, make sure you move the pick-up discs (or whatever the actual name of those things is) over to the new wheels or else your TC won't work.

The pickup ring he was talking about is the small metal ring with tons of little slots in it. It's for the speedometer and tcs, also abs if so equipped.

Oh the one on the left side?

Yes! It's used in conjunction with the wheel sensors to pick up speed. So when you take your rotors off to move them to the other wheels you're getting, be sure to move those discs as well.

When you said "move those" do you mean just the third disc in the front right? The back has a rotor only?

No, both wheels have them. Look at your bike.

For what it's worth, I just had my front rim (2015) swapped for a 2012 rim and everything bolted right up. So 2009+ will definitely fit a 2013 model as long as you have all the proper hardware.

NO NO NO NO

Jesus does anyone here who posted even have a 13+ with 05 wheels on it!? Or are you all talking out your butts

The fronts 05+ are exactly the same, just have to use the appropriate year rotors as they vairy

The rears are NOT all the same!

For 2013+ they machined out a small lip for the tone ring to slide over. If you use a 05-12 wheel it will cause the tone ring to warp and not sit flush

(I will post photos by this weekend to show this)
