I believe the OP was asking if the lever/blade/pod is transferable. Not the internals of the pod. Shimano often uses a common platform across a number of models and years of production with only finish and hardware differences denoting the various models. So the lever body (the part that connects to the bars, holds the lever/pod at the pivot and has the hood over it) (Shimano has called this part the "bracket" at times) might be used in a few different levels or a cross a few years. If your particular example does is any one's guess without actually looking carefully at how the lever/pod pivot and mating shapes match up. Shimano is not going to offer any help here. So my answer is to go to your LBS and look at their bikes in for repairs or check out fellow club members bikes that have the same lever as the one you're wondering about. Then compare the lever/pod shapes and pivot details and make your own judgments. Andy.
