look for wider runboards they should be wide at the end and of course reinforsement on the top and there should be piggy back shocks c-86 rear middle shock and i believe there should be a handle bar riser a short one though and of course the decals big large X ever where

The 2001 doesn't have the wider running boards either.No problems worth mentioning,just make sure it had piston update done.I have 6000 trouble free km's on mine.

its a nice sled rocketman...my only complaints are

1..the recoil is junk..i put a 2003 on mine and its working great no problems so far with a lot of pulls on it

2..the premature wear of the Y manifold and pipe where they meet together,only takes a few thousands kms before the Y manifold starts to get jagged and wears into pipe(solved on the 2003's)..

other than that i love my 800zx..

Was this a problem on the 600 or 700s in '01?
