What are the recognizable differences in the two, like graphics?

The subframe is probably the most obvious difference. The '01 has a painted subframe, the '02 is bare aluminum.

Another easily recognizable difference is the swing arm. The '02 swingarm is anodized where as the '01 is painted.

The '02 also has the rubber hole plug on the left side with the flat spot at the bottom where the '01 and earlier is round. '02 is when the new swing arm came out on all the big Yammies with the different suspension geometry.
