Moto Re: dirt bike year

If you get your frame number from the bike you can normally cross reference that to the manufacturers website..

As long as it's a US spec bike, the 10th digit in the vin will tell you what year it is. Do a search here on ATM for vin identification, and it should bring up a thread with the vin codes.

Count to the 10th letter in the Vin, this is the Year code letter on all mtcs, atvs etc. and use the link below to find out the year...Scroll down past the ads! If you have a bike older than 1980 then your Vin will be short and I dont know the code for the older ones.
Hope this heps!

The VIN information for various Yamaha 50, 80, 125, 180, and 200 are listed below. This VIN info is difficult to obtain, and as you can see it's very preliminary at this point...

The 9th digit of the VIN is a check digit, and varies according to the production (serial) number at the end (last 7 digits) of the VIN.

The 10th digit of the VIN is the year code. The letters I, O, Q, U, Z are not used to avoid confusion with numbers::

1980 A 1981 B 1982 C 1983 D 1984 E 1985 F 1986 G 1987 H 1988 J 1989 K 1990 L 1991 M
1992 N 1993 P 1994 R 1995 S 1996 T 1997 V 1998 W 1999 X 2000 0 2001 1 2002 2 2003 3

Note that if your scooter was manufactured from say 2/86 - 2/87, it's likely to be a '87 model. This is fairly standard practice in the automobile and motorcycle industry.



The quotes above were stolen from the www. This is US only.
Canada used/uses a different vin code, similar to the pre 1980 US vin code.

An ID plate should also be on the neck of the frame, right behind the number plate.
