Can somebody tell me if saddlebags off of a 1997 Aspencade will fit / work on a 1996 Aspencade? Were there any differences? Thank you!! :)

Yes, partzilla.com shows the same part number for 96 and 97 for same color.

All GL1500 bodywork is interchangeable for all model years of GL1500. Once they made the giant multi-million dollar injection molds to produce them, they didn't change them.

Wasn't there a change in '95 or '96 to the the lower cowl and side panels?
Don't think it changed them fitting older models, just slightly different in appearance?
