I bought a raptor not long ago as a 2008, but from what I've read the 10th number in the chassisnr is the year it's made, is this right??

my nr starts with zjs700rt00 does this tell anyone something??

Hmmm... Good question Nilsen. There is a Moderator here that goes by Mad dog that knows about the vin identification sequencing so hopefully he will chime in here for you. Do you have the title? It would have the year on it but if not then you could always call yamaha. Also the color of the frame and plastics differ from year to year. And the steering stem splines and shocks are different from year to year. You could always look at your splines on the stem and if there is a large key spline then it was made after 08.

It says in the title that it was registered first time in 10, but I bought it as an 08,,that's why I'm wondering myself..

It's silver frame with blue plastic, shocks are white no piggyback on the front..

thanks for the info so far..

That sounds like an 07 to me! 08 didn't have any white plastics and they had resi' shocks up front.

06 or 07. blue ones were the same both years so could be either.

??? Which is it? If you put the V.I.N. in correctly it would tell you what year it is. It wouldn't give you a choice of two different years.

If it has POGO shocks its a 06-07. Or someone swaped out the shocks.
