Just off the top of my head, and from memory (scary), the Y2K model got some suspension upgrades, the steering head geometry was improved (bars a little further forward in the triple clamp, and fork angle tightened up for better turning response), easier clutch pull, and I think the gas tank is a little narrower. The newer FCR carb alone was a nice improvement.

Try searching the archives because I know the differences have been discussed.

the frame was shortened at the headstock by 5mm to put weight forward and aid grip. the frame was welded with a new weld for strength.

every year yam claim to have "improved the ignition" and that year i think they modified the advance to aid starting.

they may even have bumped up the output of the stator thingy.
