Just out of curiosity I checked the vin on my raptor today and now I'm a little nervous. The vin report said its a 2007 but the color scheme and everything else on it is a 2008. It is the grey/red color scheme. :confused: Is the vin stamped for the year when it was produced?

Hmm IDK what the difference is with the years, but maybe it was right when they were changing over the years. At least with my Jeep, they started making the 201's in 2009 and seems mine was a special order, it took a while longer and didn't get it til Feb of last year.

if yours came with the rezzie shocks, red hood and black wheels...i'd def say it was made late like you said, but just weird that they would still stamp it for 2007 ?

They changed to rezzies to make them more appealing i guess because of over-stock maybe!

i'd say ask yamaha directly, but the clowns at some dealerships wouldn't know what's going on. i'd go on the yamaha site under "contact us" and send a simple e-mail/call to someone asking if that is a common thing they do. not like it's a big deal, but it would end your curiosity lol

Hey Cam,

Doesn't your machine have the sticker on the frame tube directly under your overflow bottle?

That will tell you which month and year your machine rolled off the assembly line.

My Rappy was built on 7/05 and is an 06 model.:thumbsup:

VIN and title determine the year, regardless of what's on it they are the final word.
