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

Other decoder sites  also  said they could not run that  VIN

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  http://en.vindecoder.pl/5Y4AH08W9YA007113 .

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

      I just got a 2003 arctic cat 400 and I'm having a time finding where the cdi box plug is located. Guy said he took it off and forgot where it was located. Made no sense to me but hey what do I know. Any help would be appreciated.

      Hey guys, Thanks for looking at my post. I haven't had a lot of experience with problems like this before, so I'm a little bit at a loss. The Quad was really hard to shift, (the dirty carb leaking gas making it idle high didn't help either). The only Idea I have would be is that the torsion spring is worn out, and that there is a normal parameter for how much it should move when those two arms of the shift shaft assembly spread apart.  That's my thought. Maybe someone who has more knowledge then me can let me know if i'm on the right track 😀

      OK everybody,I need some help here please. My 4 wheeler has got a bad wheel bearing I discovered while starting a brake job. Its on the left side. I've never done one and I need some knowledge how to go about it. Am I to understand I need to pull the whole axle out to do it. I've done it once on a car about 30 years ago,lol. I keep looking around for a repair manual but they're hard to find without having to buy it. I looked here on this site but apparently Im too junior a member to be able to download one right now.Bummer!  One other question if I may.When I pulled the drum off the spindle a torrent of water poured out,the brake shoes were covered in mud along with everything else. I mean the drum had alot of water in it. The shoes were so locked up after I removed the springs I tried to rotate one of the shoes and it wasn't easy at all. I noticed whoever had the machine before myself had laid a bead of RTV around the back plate but apparently it didn't work. Isn't there some kind of gasket for this purpose. I saw it calls for a dust shield but surely this wont keep the brakes dry or will it. Thanks everybody.

      I have a Yamaha YFM225 which sounds really noisy exhaust wise.  It had no baffle so I bought and installed that but it seemed to make no difference.  There are no leaks from the manifold or exhaust but the damm thing just sounds  so loud !

      Here's some pics from within the last month. Rather than build a frame and body from scratch, I drove to Kansas and bought a rust bucket G2 for $40 minus batteries. I've since cut it up in prep for the 1100cc v-twin shaft drive engine. I've included a picture of the of the latest mock-up. Im extending the frame and wheel base 12 more inches and widening the body by 12 more inches as well. I have on order a right side axle shaft and housing for the left side of my ATV rear end. This will widen the axle by about 12 inches. I will be eliminating the front  a-arms and replacing with straight pipe from knuckle to knuckle. I'll post more as it progresses.
