Recommended Posts

Hi newbie here hope im in the right place to post this question. I have just been bought a rm250 for christmas by my wife and of course wen I asked her what year it was she looked at me dull and just said "its 2014 u tit" lol I told her I meant the bike and I just got a blank look and a shrug of the shoulders so I need some help a mate of mine said it was a 91 but I am unsure Ive been told that u find out from frame/engine numbers is this true? If so wer will I find such numbers?

Thanks in advance

Hi this is an off road uk bike so no title.

Found the frame number its rj15a-101793

Engine number is j111-103847

Ive been told by the person I bought it off that is is a 91 but he didnt seem sure and I need to be sure as it needs some work and parts and I dont fancy ordering all the wrong parts ive tried a few sites with the numbers but no luck. Im not sure how to post pics but will try now

Because he's in the UK, "the tenth digit" doesn't count ~ that's a USA thing.  If you Google his engine generation number ( j111)  You'll find that the engine is actually an RMX used from '89 to '92 ( I used OEM-Cycle dot com ) and because the RMX changed so little you would be safe in ordering any part by calling it a '92 RMX250.

Just wondering but what makes you think that you have an RMX engine?  What's the engine number by the kicker?  Reason why I'm asking is that the stator cover on the RMX is different than the one that is on your engine.
