after 98, there is no difference. The 98-99's called XPL and I believe in 2000 they started calling them xp's again. After 98 they all had 951 engines. in 2003 they had 951 DI's

first year of the "shock seat" hull was 97 with a 787cc motor.
then 98 they has the xp 787cc and the xpl 951cc
i think 99 was the same 2 motors avalible
then they just put the 951 in there and dropped the limited.

You guys aren't good with your history...
In 97 the first spring seat XP came out, it was supposed to have the 951 in it but they hadn't perfected the engine yet. So...in 98 the first "XP Limited" 951 was introduced. A marketing ploy to make you think it was a limited edition. There was not an option to keep the 800 engine in a XP Limited, but there were many 97XPs left over and were sold as 98 XPs because they were such slugs. In 99 it still retained the "limited" badge but it was dropped afterward.
It wasn't a stupid question Mr Dee's...just a bit of variance between answers...
