R1 exhausts

Hi there all, new here but was hoping someone might be able to help…

I want to replace the standard exhaust (just the can) on a '99 R1. Does anybody know if its the same link pipe on the later 2000 - 2001 models as well?

Looks the same as far as I can make out, but haven’t been able to compare two bikes side by side, so I’m not certain. Anybody had any experience of this?
