Count 8 digits from the end of the VIN 1980 should be "A" , 81 should be "B". Thats houw it works with cars anyhow.

Just call any Yamaha dealer ask for the parts department, and ask them to look up what model a "4V5" is. (This should be the first 3 digits in your engine number and it also should be embedded in the VIN stamed on the frame steering head tube). They have a book that correlates the prefix to model name and year it was built. Hope this helps.
