because Yamaha sucks. the 2001 has sooooooooooo many 1 st year bugs, I have fixed all mine myself, rotor , tranny, axle, steering stem, clutch, alot of other stuff too..... it is sad, on 2002 they changed so much, and did nothing for us 2001 owners. I finally have mine all fixed up, and now I am SICK of it, I have worked on it, as much as i rode it... so I am giving it away for $3800................
i know how you feel, i traded in my o1 raptor for a z and never looked back, i blew the tranny and clutch cost 1500, throttle cable, axle housing wallowed out, and i had alot on it to.660R Raptor
