2001 R1 - known issues?

So I'm planning on picking up a 2001 R1 pretty soon... I found 2 that I want for the right price and I was wondering if there are any known issues I should be looking at when I go check out the bikes.

Yes, the 98-01's are notorious for tranny problems. Slipping out of 2nd gear is common. It's an issue with the shift fork and gears. Parts are not cheap either and labor is expensive if you don't do it yourself. Do a search on for more info.
