I believe they are interchangable. May want to double check with Yamaha or one of the aftermarket companies before you buy one though.

I believe that they are indeed interchangeable.


I haven't looked thru their website for these particular bikes so just see if the part numbers are the same.

their alum subframe is round tubing and it says it would fit through 2000 but i think the square tubing from the 02 model would still work but i don't know if they change any of the mounting or frame ergos on it in 02 ?

Is the air box mounting the same? I thought that was the change, but I am not sure.
