What year is this RMX?

A friend of mine is looking to buy his first bike. The owner of this RMX doesn't know the year of the bike. He said he thinks it's a 91 but isn't sure. After searching all over at different pictures etc I have found a lot of misleading info trying to identify exactly what year this is. Any RMX experts able to tell from these pictures? Thanks in advance for any info!

I`d say 91,or 92,I got a 92.

I thought the blue frame was in 89/90....

I had a 93 so Im no help...

I thought so to but have seen claims of blue frames for different years. Brake pedal change in 94 I think to a more arched one.

Try to look up the serial number on the frame.. Ask the owner if he could possibly. That's what I did when my friend was buying his '96 cr.. I just typed the frame number in on my phone.

Looks like a 91.

It kinda looks like a mix and match of parts.  There isn't a manufacture date on the steering tube?

 

'89-92 had the blue frame

 

'89-90 had the blue seat (what you have)

 

'91-92 had a splotchy seat  (you'll know it if you see one)

 

'89- 90 had Kayaba suspension

 

'91-92 had Showa suspension

 

'92 had wrap around fork guards  (what you have, although they don't look OEM)

 

'93 and up had grey clutch cover  ( what you have???)

 

Closer, more detailed pictures would help a lot

Need the 10th digit from the VIN.

 

And I do agree that the fork guards do not look correct, but it does have a 2 piece clutch cover so I'm guessing 90 or 91.
