The 01 R6 isnt so sharp that it is unstable. Iv have had Pirellis, Michelins, and dunlops on it. Never hade a problem from any tire choice. I loved my 03 until I had a tankslapper.

There is no difference from 99-2002. Minor electrical changes, stickers, colors and I think about 3,4, maybe even 5 horsepower. You dont have to believe me but my bike has parts from every got dam year from 99 - 02 on it.
The 03, even though I have not ridden it, suppose to have a nicer power band. 99-02 is carb'ed but still very nice bike. From what i heard, they are excellent track bikes.
