On the front steering stem, as you are looking at it from the front will have 2 ways to ID the year. On the right side of the stem will be a sticker that says the year and the model (CR85R or CR85RB). Also, on the left side of the steering stem is the VIN, the 10th digit will be the year. For a 2004 it should say "4". Other ways to help id the year, not perfect are:

1. The cylinder head will be stamped 85cc (2003 to 2007) or 82cc (1996 to 2002)

2. The exhaust pipe will fit over the exhaust port on the cylinder (1996 to 2004)

3. The exhaust pipe fits in the exhaust port of the cylinder (2005 to 2007)

4. The rear portion of the side number plate is pointed rearward (2003 to 2007)

5. The rear portion of the number plate goes straight down (1996 to 2002)

6. White frame is 1996 to early 2002

7. Silver frame is late 2002 to 2007

If you need any more help, just pm me and we can see what it is.

How man. I'm trying to make sure I have a 05 motor in my 2005 frame I just bought. Reason I'm skeptical cuz it has a 03 04 round slide carb on it.
