Default 39mm or 41mm Fork Tubes?

Hey guys. What size are my fork tubes? I cannot remember if they were 39 or 41mm from the factory.

My old FXSTC has 39mm. They went to 41mm on later versions.

Interesting, I was under the impression that the earlier (pre 06) bikes had the smaller 39mm tubes.
Oh well, that's why I got a cheap inch/metric caliper, so I could measure things to make sure.
I suggest you guys do the same, tools are investments that pay off in the long run.
