does it make a difference??

Hey guys, I'm looking for a used XR650R. My question is are their any years to stay away from? From reading some posts here,i haven't found common problems associated with a certain year. Thanks for your advise in advance.:applause:

They are all virtually identical, accept for graphics.

There was a clutch bushing update in 2002 I think? Other than that I can't think of any differences.

i have a 2000 and have two buddies with a 02 and 04 all have had them for a while they are great bikes havent had any major mechanical problems:ride:

I remember once reading that in like 04 or something they had slightly thicker engine cases. I dunno if it was a joke or not, or that it matters, but just a thought...

Just the pre 2002 clutch bushing replacement, if your running a stock carb use the 68s or get the eddie..........
