The white airbox means it is an 01. 99-01 Yz250's are almost fully interchangable anyways, hopefully someone can chime in on specifics. What parts are questioning?

Agree with it being an '00 or '01 because of the white airbox.

The 2000s have a solid front brake rotor, the '01s have a floating rotor.

Can't really tell from your photos, but you can see the different rotors here...

Well, then look at the links I posted earlier and see which disc matches your front disc.

Just to be sure, look for 6 "buttons" that link the outer disc to the inner rotor, like this...

If you don't see the buttons it is a solid rotor and therefore a 2000 model.
