Man there is a BUNCH of info to cover...
99-00 are essenetially the same except for....
Gas tank has studs on the front in 99/bolts in 200
Engine is smooth gloss black in 99/textured, satin black in 00
99 had available forged 5 spoke wheels
01 looks just like a 00, but it has a much different transmission. 99-00 had some serious issues with jumping out of gears, and locking up on ocassion. Many 99-00 bikes have upgraded trans added by owners. You can tell by looking at front sprocket. If you see a speed sensor "looking" at the teeth you probably have an upgrade
In 02 EVERYTHING changed under the side covers with the advent of the Freedom motor. More sculptured cylinders; instead of the square blocks of the 00-01. New trans[again] higher compression, better heads, and improved injection boosted HP from the mid 60's to the mid 70's in bone stock form.
There is many more things if you want to be a bit more specific
