There's a sticker that says zero flex flyer. I think it is the factory tower. Did they change them in 2001? I'll have to go look at the owners manual and check what the pics look like.

That tower was used up through 2000. Maybe there was a carryover between the old and new styles as the model year changed. However, I have seen a couple adds for 2000 X5's that had the new tower though.

The HIN ends with 0. I was surfing through the way back machine and the 2000 had this tower while the 2001 had the better looking two piece (ND?) tower.

Just wanted to confirm that your boat is actually a 2000.
You've got the factory OEM tower then.
