Can anybody tell me if there is any difference between the 2000 and 2003 xr650r other than the plastic :)

Updated countershaft oil seal and updated clutch bushing.
Both are available from Honda dealers and are relatively easy to install.

cheers, Craig

Countershaft seal and clutch bushing have been updated to address possible oil leaks.. Different graphics of course, and that's it. I have a 2000 model with about 5000 miles on it, and I haven't had any problems with the seal or bushing, so I haven't upgraded to the newer parts yet. If they fail I will, since they are easy to get and pretty easy to install. I've had this bike for 3 years now, and never had a single mechanical problem, so I think it's safe to say they are very reliable no matter what year you have.
