Help with Quad vin number

Recommended Posts

I just purchased a yamaha big bear.  I was told that it was a 2003 400 big bear.  Now I'm not so sure.  I have put the vin in a few different decoders and got 3 different answers. One told me the closest vin was one of 3. another told me they couldnt find it and the 3rd said it was some 2 stroke model (which I know it isn't )

 

the vin is 5Y4AH08W9yA007113

 

could any one help me out

Are you certain that vin  is correct ?  This is an European  motorcycle/  atv  parts supply  company that has a  list of  Yamaha  ATV's  codes from 2000 to  2012.

Your  vin  prefixes  don't  match anything they  list .. They  do  offer  to check  a  vin  you send them  and  reply  by  e-mail..  They  list neither  the  5Y4 prefix nor the  AH08W model  code; so  those may  be  different for  North American  models.

You could try contacting them  and see if they  can  help.

  I also tried running your VIN  on this site and  it came up with an  unknown

Thanks. I have an email into them.  yes. I checked it and re checked it. the vin is right in the spot it is supposed to be and doesnt appear to be altered in any way.   I did find this site that was able to decode it

Everything  I searched on  came  up with  a 2000 model too.   Searching from  that   site  and   it  could be  a  Big  Bear,  Kodiak  or Grizzly..  Yamaha  ,  like all  the  quad makers  makes several  models with basically thee same parts but with  slightly different  badges  and accessories.

  I saved that  VIN search site .  Hopefully  it will   help  another  sometime down the road.  When  I went to  register  my   Honda , I  had trouble with the  VIN  stamped on the  frame ..  it took some searching to  fine  the  proper   VIN because of the  rust  and   poorly stamped digits.  A  little  searching  plus  sanding  and using a  magnifying lass  Iwas finally  able to  get the  correct   VIN.  That's  why  I ask  others to double  check theirs.  Nothing  like 25  years  worth of trail  riding  and  corrosion  to  make  some  VINs  hard  to  read.

  Bought  my Honda  3  years  ago   and when  the provincial  gov't  decided we  needed to  register them and get  a   tag  for them  before we  could continue  to  ride  the  trails  and   logging roads .  Took  a  lot of frustration  to  get the  proper  VIN to  register  it  and get  my tag.  I don't  mind  helping others with similar   problems .. That's one good thing about being retired .  I  have time to  search  and play  on the  pc .  Now  if the pensions  just paid better ..   LOL
