1F9102983=DT125F

I can't find a listing for the AT1 but I'd expect it to be 71 or earlier, sorry can't get any closer

Found these too. They're more on the YZ line, but if you're still not coming up with anything maybe email the guys in charge of the sites to see if they can help.

Bikebandit.com also has Yamaha models broken down by year all the way back to 1963, so you might be able to piece things together there also?

MANY THANKS FOR REPLYS,JUST A BIT MORE INFO.THE AT1 HAS NO LIGHTS ON IT,HAS A HIGHER FRONT MUD GUARD AND A LONGER EXHAUST TAIL PIPE THAN THE AT1s I HAVE SEEN,ALSO HAS NOT GOT A AUTO LUBE OR PUMP. THE PISTON ONLY HAS 1 RING ON IT LIKE MOTO CROSS SO IAM WANDERING IF IT IS A AT! MX.TRYED A FEW SITES BUT NOT MUCH INFO.

It was pretty common on the autolube Yamahas to remove that system for racing, to lighten the chassis. Instead of automatic oiler a racer simply used mixed gas/oil.

Also very common to change exhaust for more power. A longer exhaust can give more bottom end power to a high revving engine originally designed for peak top end power. Hard telling what parts swapping may have been done in 30+ years!??
