I think when the liter one came out, only for the factory designation turned F5.

Very clean example.

It ain't what you ride, it's the way you ride it.

The replacement for the F4-750, when first shown, was announced as an F5.
The serial number range was registered with whatever international authorities that control such things as "F5".
When I moved my '07 F4-1000R from CA (where it was registered/titled as an "F4") to NV, the NV DMV said that according to "VINA" - the authority they use to verify VIN's - the bike was an "F5", and my NV title/registration is of an '07 F5.
AFAIK, there has never been an "F5" designation used by the factory since the "1000's" went into production. That your cases (and mine too - I've never looked) carry an "F5" mark is probably due to the fact that they just didn't want to change the molds or stamp.
