How to tell what year WR450 by the VIN

Recommended Posts

Just bought what I was told is an 04 model. How can I tell what year it is by looking at the VIN or manufacturer date? Its a stock model with very little wear anywhere, no scratches on the skidplate or anything. Any help is appreciated.

So I guess it should be a 4 or maybe a "d" since thats the fourth letter in alphabet? Im away from home and dont remember the vin. I'll when I get home.

The tenth digit is indeed a number, and represents the year! A 4 would indicate an 04 model.
