(at around 52 mins) In the helicopter chase through the forest, when Logan is on the motor bike, you can clearly hear the separation of shots coming from the machine gun mounted on the side of the helicopter. However, it is a Gatling style machine gun capable of shooting 6,000 rounds a minute. The sound of it firing is more like a hum rather than a typical bang-bang-bang sound from a standard hand held sub-machine gun. The sound department appears to have simply chosen a "machine gun" sound from a list without being accurate to what type of machine gun it is.
(at around 48 mins) When Wolverine notices the farmer's motorcycle, he calls it a chopper. It's supposed to be a 1964 Harley Davidson FL, and appears to be in pretty much stock condition. A chopper is a bike that has been stripped down or "chopped" to a bare essentials condition. However, the term "chopper" is incorrectly used by many people to describe any kind of large motorcycle.
(at around 49 mins) When the farmer speaks to Logan the morning after he sleeps in the barn, Logan is sitting sideways on the motorbike, he gets off it and stands up to put the jacket on, but the bike doesn't move at all. Then when he mounts the motorbike again it bounces on its suspension with his weight.

Errors in geography
(at around 45 mins) At some point a car drives over a one lane bridge (before the Wolverine goes to the paddock). After the bridge an arrow pointing forward is on the left hand side of the road, revealing its filming locations of Australia and New Zealand. This also shows the old couple driving on the wrong side of the road, even though this was supposedly America.
(at around 1h 14 mins) When Wolverine and Gambit are flying in the plane, they are carrying on a normal conversation but without the use of headsets. In a small, two-seater plane it's nearly impossible to hear your own voice screaming, much less someone next to you, because of the proximity of the engine to the passengers.
Cyclops' optic blast are known to generate heat as seen when the optic blast are blocked by Logan using his claws which become heated eventually and are used to decapitate Weapon XI during the final battle. This is contradicted when weapon XI hits Sabretooth with the optic blast and Sabretooth's clothes appear to be unscathed.
(at around 7 mins) In the beginning of the film, When Stryker walks in on Logan and Victor in a jail cell (right after the firing squad scene), he identifies himself as a Major, however he is wearing Silver cluster rank insignia on his uniform. This denotes the rank of a Lt. Colonel, not a Major. Major wears a Gold cluster.
During the adamantium implantation, the metal is injected into the major bones in Wolverine's skeleton (skull, ribs, arm and leg bones). The X-ray monitor displays then show the injected metal spreading out to coat the rest of his bones. This should have also coated his teeth with adamantium, but it doesn't.
Incorrectly regarded as goofs
Sabretooth and Wolverine are supposed to be brothers, but in the first X-Men (2000) movie they encounter each other several times and there is no mention of this connection. This is because Sabretooth suffers from amnesia just like Wolverine, as explained in the comic book "X2 Prequels: Wolverine", which takes place between X-Men (2000) and X2 (2003).
The movie opens in "North-West Territories, Canada, 1845". The Northwest Territories (containing what is now the Northwest Territories plus Yukon, Nunavut, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, and large parts of Ontario) were not part of Canada until 1870, but this caption is made for a modern audience, who would be unfamiliar with the geopolitics of 1845.
(at around 2 mins) Lighting in the foyer of the 1845 mansion was provided by light bulbs in a grand chandelier. The first home to have electrical lighting was that of Joseph Swan, one of the inventors of the light bulb, in England in 1879. A mansion deep in the Canadian wilderness would not have been outfitted with electricity until several decades after that.
