So how can I tell if i've got a 98 or 99 wr400? I've got the back tire at the shop needing to be re-spoked and they need to know what year, I figured they would be the same, but he says there different. Can anybody help, please?

The 98 had a black hot start button on the carb the 99, a red one on the 99. Not a fool proof id, but a quick way to check.
