This may sound bad, but what the hell did I buy?
Posted May 19, 2011 - 06:21 PM
-oversized gas tank (looks like a factory piece to me)
-headlight (looks factory)
-Tag T2 bars
-brand new tires
Now that I'm looking the bike over, I am wondering did I actually buy a WR instead of a YZ? I can't find any labels on the frame that tell me the VIN or even what the bike is? The rear fender is straight like a MX bike. I can post or link some pics but I don't have them with me now. Can someone tell me where to look on the bike for the vin tag or something else to look for?

With a headlight and bigger gas tank I'd have to say it's a WR. If it doesn't have a taillight see if there's wiring going back to feed one.

It's definately a WR400, but not sure now what year. The only label I found is the emissions label. It has a model code YAM5BF0400.
Are the radiators silver or black?
Silver = 00
Black = '98, '99
Also, if I'm not mistaken, the 00 model used the second gen FCR carb. Post up a pic of the rads and the carb and we should be able to help you out.
