Is there a link or FAQ that covers the changes since the bike was originally introduced? I'm shopping and want to know if I should steer clear of the early 2000 models...

Re: RC Changes over the years (Evoking)

This will probably help:

Plastics/Paint Scheme differences:
- 00, 01, and 02 are the same
- 03 has black tail, less black on front cowl, and the entire "honda wing" fits on
the side cowls. Tanks has slight differences. Pictures below for 00-02 vs. 03 differences.
- 04 <U>generally</U> same as 00-02 except it has white "number plates" instead of black (and an unpainted frame)
- Also the inner portion of the front rotors on 2000s is black. It's gold on 2001 & up

Mechanical/component differences 02 & up (SP2) as compared w/ 00-01 (SP1):
- longer, re-designed swingarm
- re-designed subframe (lighter)
- improved FI & larger throttle bodies
- lighter 5 spoke wheels (6 spoke on 00-01)
- Slip on exhaust for 00-01 only fits 00-01 and 02 & up slip-ons only fit 02 & up.
- There are other changes not really that important to your choice (relocated oil cooler, taller stock windscreen, etc.)

Here's the detail pics of 00-02 vs. 03 paint schemes...

The 01's are just fine. My 01 RC dyno's higher than both 02 and 03's my buddy's own, with the same mods.
