'02 and later have a more relaxed riding position, and a better looking front end IMO.
I had an '02 KRS, and now have an '04 KGT. In terms of riding experience, they are very similar. The major difference is wind protection on the GT. It is better, but not significantly so.
My '02 had some electrical issues, and tended to pop out of gear a lot (I was the 4th owner at 24k miles).
My '04 is perfect. Motor is glass smooth, trans shifts like butter, rides great.
I think some of the older bike had cooling fan issues, as my '02 did. Plus, as mentioned above, watch for oil seeps.
