99-02 are all the same, with the same taillight. I have 99 plastics and an 02 taillight. They changed in 03.

I just did some digging and the '02 models could come with either taillight, depending where in the production cycle they were made. SUPPOSEDLY for the last few months of 01, the 02s were still made with the old style, but they were updated for the official release of the 02 model. Basically leftovers from what I can understand. The plastics are the same though.

I personally removed my taillight from a bike I know for a fact is/was an 02, so it's just one of those weird things that manufactures do I suppose. We're both right :D

Local guys who crash their shit.

The tail/subframe/seats were on a friends street R6. He race prepped it and shortly thereafter, wrote it off at the track and sold it. This stuff sat in his garage for 2 years. I made him an offer, he accepted. The taillight belonged to an eBay whore. He had an 01 R6 and he literally bought enough spares off eBay to build most of a bike. He laid his down at the track and bought a new GSXR1000. Spares sat in his garage forever and a day and I saw it whilst helping him track prep his GSXR and tossed him a $20.
