If memory serves me I think they increased the size of the rod bearing in '99. I know there was a change in the counter balancer as well but I think that may have come later. Other than that I'm not sure there was much difference.

I believe that the 98 had some problems with clutch baskets. I have a 98 but so far so good in 3 years use since I have had it.
