kawasaki W650 2000-01 Handling Differences?

I've read that that there were some minor changes in 2001 that were supposed to quicken the handling. But I've also read some people didn't care for those changes. Anyone ride both and have an opinion?

Yes, and it's virtually impossible to notice. You'd have to be very sensitive.

Simply changing the front tire of either will affect the handling much more than you would notice this change.
