    base gasket problem actually started with the 2003 years IMO and 2001 is the year for the disc etc change

    Ordering the 2010 gasket was the original fix before clever folks tried the re torque and making sure the threads are clean with a tap

    My '95 (it says 3/95 on head tube decal) has fork drain bolts.

    Comparing my 99 and 94. The 99 on the right side of the frame just behind the steering stem there is a wire loop to retain the wire harness. On the 94 it is a straight wire to do the same job.

    Anyone got an update on the fuse situation ? - pre 2001 it was just the one - not sure of what happened after that ....

    Comparing my 99 to my 15 other than the changes already listed my 99 has 3.5mm spokes, 15 has 4.0mm spokes, the 15 has hex head bolts on the clutch and stator covers instead of JIS screws (easy upgrade). An earlier post mentions the old W32 rear tire which I also preferred to the W34. It was slightly wider and shorter than the W34 and in my opinion a much better tire in sand.

    Edit: On my 15 it is only the front wheel that has 4mm spokes. The rear remains at 3.5mm. Another little note is that the 3.5mm spoke nipples require a 5.6 wrench and the 4mm spoke nipples require a 6.0mm wrench.

    electric changes at disc model, start relay different includes fuse, only uses the white relay, (much better system)
    head bearing were loose on early models??
    thick starter wire goes up and over the top of the engine into the side case on 01 models, goes under left side case on pre 01

    Yeah it looks like it would be better off road then the current one. Too bad they're not available anymore

    I have an '87 with a kickstart lever. Most other years don't seem to have one. Wasn't that only for the first year or two?

    They included a kick start from '87 through to 2000 - post 2000 (2001) came with electric only

    Ironically, the Japanese market bikes and the European all come with the kicker regardless of year - just another example of how hard done by you Americans are I guess
