Default 1983 RM 80

     

My son has bought a 1983 RM 80 as a restore project. The frame states 1983 but 10th digit on vin says 1984. We need some plastic for the bike.. which has been hard to find. Can anyone tell me if the body plastic for this machine is compatible with newer machines. Will body plastic from a 1985 or 86 fit on this 1983?
Does anyone know of any online stores where parts either OEM or Aftermarket can be purchased for this bike?

Thanks

Here's my trick for Zuki parts compatibility.

Look up the part # here.
Alpha Sports - Suzuki Motorcycle Parts Catalog

Enter the # here under "Quick Part Lookup" and it will tell you all the bikes that use that particular piece.

Default New problem

Ok using the links provided and reading probably a million pages I have found some plastic for this machine. However, the website that has it show a D E and F model. I emailed them with the year and vin# of the machine to order the right parts since I have no idea of what model it is....... and - neither do they. They state the vin # does not come up on their computers, and with out that they can not help. But this is the vin # on the machine. From what I can tell the plastic for 1983,84,85 is the same since doing a search of part numbers brings up all 3yrs.

So, do I go by the tenth letter rule? The tenth letter being a D.... would this make a D model machine?

Thanks again for the help

The D stand for 83, E for 84 and F for 85.
