I have a yamaha motorcycle with the only number on engine and on front being 8R6-005985. Can you tell me the year and model of the motorcycle

Look @ your VIN # the tenth digit will tell you the year. There are some letters not used though, the letters (I,O,Q) are not used in the VIN at all, BUT to determine the year (tenth digit) these are not used (I,O,Q,U,Z or the number 0). looking at the engine # looks like you have an R6 witch is a 600cc bike, if it it is a Sport bike.......You can look at the engine where the cylinder head (the finned upper part of the engine) meets the lower section, and on the very bottom part of the cylinder there should be a # like (598) that means u have a 600, it could be on the left or right sides. hope that helps. You can also call a YAMAHA dealer and give them the VIN and they should be able to look it up to tell you what you have...

Year modal of dirt bike fram vin 583-004045

If that is all your vin number has to offer, it doesn't follow the rules of street bike vin numbers, usually, the first letters are a code, then the first digit is street or dirt, 2nd is model, 3rd is a letter for liquid or air, 4th is engine size, 5th is HP, 6th is check digit, 7th is year, the 8th should be a letter for the city of manuf.and finally the series number. All these digits are codes, you can look them up on line. Hope this helps.

Just by looking at the vin number won't tell you the year of your bike. You need to write the vin number down and get on the phone with a dealer that operates your type of motorcycle manufacture. Tell them the vin number and then they can tell you what year it is.

EXCEPT If it isn't older than a 1983 you can use this method on all 17 digit vin numbers cars, bikes, atv's etc. code follows,count to the tenth digit,D IS 1983 E 84. F 85. G 86.H 87.J 88.K 89.L 90.M 91. N 92.P 93.R 94. S 95.T 96.V 97. W 98.X 99.Y 2000. 1 01. 2 02.3 03. 4 04. 5 05. 6 06.7 07. You sholdn't have any problem understanding this.

JM2LM026264 that's the number that i can find on the bike, but when i enter this vin number they say its not a good one. it is a FZR400/600cc model

There should be 17 alpha neumeric digits. Check the VIN on your title. If less than 17 digits then the bike is more than 10 years old. Take the bike to a dealer, buy some oil and spark plugs then have them look at the bike when they ask what year the bike is.

your bike should be a 1992. You go by the 10th digit, and you can find VIN charts online to tell you the year of the corresponding letter. Starting in 2001, it switched to numbers. The number in the 10th digit corresponds to the last digit of the year.
