WR owner in need of IT help

Help! I need to know the model year of An IT 250 ,frame and engine no starts with 4v5, I think it is 81 or 82 but need to know which as I am restoring it. thanks for any help Harvey

Count 8 digits from the end of the VIN 1980 should be "A" , 81 should be "B". Thats houw it works with cars anyhow.


Just call any Yamaha dealer ask for the parts department, and ask them to look up what model a "4V5" is. (This should be the first 3 digits in your engine number and it also should be embedded in the VIN stamed on the frame steering head tube). They have a book that correlates the prefix to model name and year it was built. Hope this helps.
