any difference btw 03' and 00' xr650r

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

Don't forget BNG! :D

Gotta have those "Bold New Graphics" :)

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.

good deal. Thanks for the input. A great deal on a 2000 xr 650r came a knocking on my door so to say and i could not pass it up! Now i have to start project 650r. I will be putting my 600r up for sale. after just putting all new goodies on her! Any body interested let me know and i will give the extensive list of mods and goodies!
