I'm looking at both of these year bikes to purchase. Is one more desirable over the other? where there any differances ie. upgrades/changes that makes one better/more reliable than the other?
Flaking rocker arms? when was this fixed?
Thank You

Hi Dave,
I dont think there were many changes between the two years. I know the rocker arm issue was not corrected until 2003.

I have a 99' and its been a wonderful bike. I have over 46,000 miles and it purrs along great. I replaced 2 opening rockers at 12,000 and none since. The headlight is woefully insufficient (went with a DD and love it). The stock seat was uncomfortable and replaced with a Sargent and like it alot.

The power outlet of both model years has a wimpy 3 amp fuse and wiring. If you purchase one of the bikes and plan on using heated riding gear, replace the outlet with an upgraded one by Powerlets.

As Mike said, you will want to upgrade to the Ducati Designs headlight if you plan on riding after dark.
