00 to 01, YZ 250, any difference.

When I bought it I was told

that it was a 00. The title

states 01. Anybody know

how to check, the cranks are different.

cosmetically the only difference was the 01 had a white air box i,i think. and the tenth digit in the vin# should be a letter should be an N,i think if it's an 01, i've owned both bikes and both are excellent bikes

Air box was white, used platic fusion paint on it, worked really well.

I liked the white airbox...call me nuts but it was always easy to tell how clean it was....

01 saw the introduction of the TPS on the carb and CDI.

BRM, My 2000 YZ 250 has the TPS sensor on the carb.

You can plug your VIN in here and see what year it is.

My mistake I thought that yamaha said the 01 was the first year with it.

there would not be much difference in the bikes any way.

00 had white airbox
