He is correct.
The 2001 - 2003 600 is almost identical.
There were small changes from year to year like color, FI map, etc, but that was the first year they went FI and the complete re-design.

Beware...some 2001 600's have had the dreaded 2nd gear problem that is not warranteed and is costly to repair. More common in the 2001 750's I believe.

Is it also correct that the 01 600 had the one headlight for low beam and another high-beam thing?

Whats the "2nd gear problem"? Would i be able to tell if it has that problem by riding the bike?Are there any other things to look for? How bad is it if a bike was droped at "low" speeds? Would that mess up the handle bars, or frame? Basicly I'd appreaciate any tips/advice you guys could give me on geting a 2001- 2003 gixxer 600. Is it likely that ill be able to pick one up for around $4,500 to $5,000? Thanks again for answering my other questions earlyer.
