Model year changes?

Hello pig owners - considering buying an XR650R for a second bike, is there any difference between model years from 2000-2006? (other than bold new graphics of course).

Thanks in advance.

Very, very little. After '02 they updated the clutch bushing for more oil flow (easily updated for earlier years-new bushing is cheap & fits without modifications) & the countershaft seal was updated around that time as well. Again readily retrofitted with no mods.
