00' Mille R?

I am looking at purchasing one. My first litre bike. I figure the 00' should not be quite as nasty as the freshened up 04's. It, of course, has all the tasty Ohlins bits & carbon. It also has a full Akro race system (sounds awsome BTW) only 5K miles. Just wondering if there has been any problems w/ these year models & if there are any questions I should be asking. I rode it & it rides great. Shifted smooth both cold & hot. I am sure there are more informed members regarding the milles than I. So please chime in.

Beyond the normal check to see if the service was done at 4600. There is a list in the manual, easy check is to see if they removed the forks to change the oil. Also the 2000.5 (that would be the first year for the "R" in the states) had a problem with bad stand switches.
