Bold New Graphics?

A friend of mine from work is considering buying a 2001 xr650 from a local dealer. It appears to be a really good deal but he is wondering if there is any difference between the 01 and 2002? Any help would be appreciated.

From what I know, the difference is very minor. The only two changes I know of are the seat color and the clutch busing. The clutch bushing was changed at some point in the 2001 models for a newer type, but it's an inexpensive part if you ever have to replace it.
