Of course the ??? is for privacy and I am assuming the hyphen in Rowdys is to shorten and leave out several unnecessary numbers and maybe even leaving off the JYA is for brevity
Nope, data is unchanged, and copy pasted directly from the dealer's "service bulletin"! However, my official federal roadworthiness certificate, too, contains a longer string (JYACJ04WX3A0030??) as the official vehicle id.
I'll check what the actual year+model code for the '03 WR450Fs is next time at my dealer's. The WR400Fs of old had 5BF and the YZ400Fs were 5BE, easily recognizeable on various parts of my WR400F that had 5BE molded into them if they were identical to the YZ but, 5BF for WR4000F only parts.
These model codes typically do change every year, even within the various WR426F years. The Yamaha model code is my favourite way of specifying model/year and configuration when ordering spare parts (my '98 european WR400F was 5BF1 for instance) much safer than "year of making" or said odd serial numbers.
