They used the same trailler from season 3 as they did in the first two seasons. The bikes on the trailers were KZ-900P and those had the big pursuit lights and other windscreen. Because the diffence would be visible, they "reengineerd" the KZ900. They removed the KZ900-P windscreen and put a KZ1000-P windscreen on the bikes. They forgot to replace the pursuit lights (they are still the KZ900 lights), so they are much bigger than the lights which are on the KZ1000. Also, the metal frame below the headlight is missing on the KZ900. See this (rare) picture:
