    Mine are black...

    Not 100% sure, but I think 2000 had the sliver grey color.

    They may have been replated, when they strip your cylinders the black comes off.

    Probably from replating. They are black on a 2000. They went to silver on the 1300's

    cylinders

    well i did a little research today and found out from a dealer that all 1200r`s came with black cylinders from the factory but if for some reason you order replacement cylinders from yamaha they are that silver grey color.

    Thats what I was going to say when you order a cylinder piston combo for 1200 from yamaha you have to paint it they come silver,so you have 3 new cylinders which means your ski has had oil line repair and or PV.repair either way be sure you buy the clips for your power valve,in engine I am rebuilding now,number 1 cylinder dropped PV, number 2 oil line off and hard seize, number 3 oil line off and no seize so it must have just happened , a bit of ring wear , but cylinder shows no damage ,this is lucky.get the clips on your pv nowJMHO>Marvin
