Thinking of trading my 06' yz250f for a 2 stroke, guy calling this a 2007 but frame looks different than a 07 I have seen.

Any ideas... Don't wont to get something older..

Thanks Randy

I think it looks older than an 07 myself. Mostly because of the graphics and silver wheels. Just google how to identify year by vin number. I don't remember exactly which letter identified the year,but it's a pretty simple code.

My bike has a manufartures decal on the steering head behind the number plate with the info on it.

Hope this helps

It's either an '03 or '04, my money being on 2004. Definitely not an '05 or newer.

Oooooh, I like these games. :smirk:

03, 04 at best. the frame was ovalized in 05, that one is round, the swingarm became cast in 05, that one isn't the same. the shrouds are the old type that stick out further.

Is he wanting an 07 price for it???

vin will tell the tale as others have stated.

Just for reference, here is an 07 SX:

It's a 04. 03/04 were basically the same bike.

Oval frame came in 05.

Black wheels, forks and frame came in 06.

Yeah I suspected it was an 03-04. The frame gave it away, I knew when he didn't want me to add cash something was up. I was waiting for him to call me back and I was going to get the VIN to verify. Seems like a lot of guys are trying to pull this stuff. To many resources like TT forum :smirk:

and www.motoverse.com/tools/vinDecoder to buy uniformed..

Thanks for all the responses...

Check Triples for offset.. 16 on the 03, pipe looks like an 03 as it was unique to that year .. frame is 03/04..

I have an 03, 04 , 06 in the shop and that is early..
