Production Date on XT 500

Recommended Posts

I need to know the date my 1976 Yamaha XT 500 was manufactured.

Anybody know if there is a date stamp on the bike or if there is documentation to check the the serial # to date the bike?

yamaha was terrible at keeping (or even putting them on) the stickers on the necks that had all that info, usually they just stamped a vin and called it good. there are a couple of sites out there that will give you the year and model based on the first 3 digits of the vin, but that wont help with a production date... you could always call your yamaha stealership too, they might be able to get more info from just the vin.

Thanks dp. That was what i found but was hoping someone smarter than me had a way to date the bike. If Yamaha has a historian like HD I could probably get it that way.

Anybody know who to contact at Yamaha to get this kind of info.?
