Factoryx and I already had that figured out a while ago. Still wish I could have found that serial number though  ::) 93' is what we decided I believe, I might have put 94' a few times because that's what I got used to ordering parts for a while back hahaha, but 93' is what seems plausible. The only distinguishing factor is the shape of the stator cover and swing arm, or at least those stood out to me.

Mixin' gas and kickin' ass, Burnin' oil and smellin' royal. Two stroke until I die (which hopefully isn't soon)   If your not mixing gas, your not kicking ass.

also look at how the rad shrouds are attached to the tank/rad you can tell the difference between 92 and 93 both in the bolt location and the number of bolts . 93 is showing 3 bolts for the shroud and the 92 is showing 4 and not spaced out nearly as much as the 93 . I've said it before and I'll say it again your bike is a 92 IMHO . Unless someone before you put a 92 tank on a 93 -95 bike.

Another key area of difference is the number plates and rear shock linkage .

Yeah, you are probably right, I just noticed that. But I don't really think a few years or so matter, I have been ordering parts for a 94' and I haven't had any snags yet  ;D Not to mention, my bike still keeps up with every single modern bike I have ever ridden/raced with. I have just done so many mods to it I guess. Other than that suspension is basically new, as with the tires and frame, so years don't bother me much hahaha 

But enough thread robbing, lets get back to the main topic ;D

I wouldnt let it being a 92 matter one bit . It's modern enough to compete with any newer mx'r . I wasnt saying that to make you feel like you have an old bike . I was just stateing that so you could have a definite year .

No I know, I understand. I said it once before in some other thread, but I don't get why people make such a big deal over years. If you get the engine done every season or so, its like a whole new engine. Especially with Yamaha, the design hasn't changed much from the 90's, I mean the frame is different, but the engine hasn't changed a whole lot except for the power valve, so it doesn't bother me one bit hahaha

I want to see the 75... for me that was the game changer... The mono-shock and extended travel.  Boy that brings back memories.  I have a 74 Honda Elsinore CR 250.  the engine was excellent, and had good suspenders for the time, but within a few years the mono-shock and extended travel made my bike extinct.  I had no problems until the track got too ruff, and the bikes with the newer suspenders would float over the track, while I was getting the crap beat out of me. 

Without cash to buy a new bike, at the age of 15/16 I retired from racing..   :D but not from riding.
