Differences 02 On Up

Hey guys, I'm looking at an 02 1000. Are there any big differences from the later models. Should I stay away from a low milage 02? Any inherent problems with the older ones? Thanks

Do a search on "chudder" here.

The 02's and 03's had a clutch basket problem that was supposed to be a warranty fix. The symptom was a shaking vibration around 2k to 4k rpms. Mine still has it, hasn't been fixed. The general consensus is that the chudder doesn't hurt anthing, it's just noisy.

Other than that it's a great machine. Goes like stink. That's why I named mine "Fluffy the Torque Monster". I don't know what anyone would do with more power...

Oh, and all the dykes in my club like it. :rolleyes:
