Did some extensive searching for you. You may need to call an old school Yamaha mechanic to pull that one up for you. Tpo give you an idea of what was being produced back then, found this list ...
XT 250 G 80-81 3Y3,5g4
XT 250 G 80 3Y4
XT 250 H 81 3Y1
XT 250 J 82 15Y
XT 250 J 82 3Y1
XT 250 J 82 3Y4
XT 250 K 83 3Y1
3y2 does not appear anywhere. But the series of number indicated for the XT250 above point it to probably being an XT built between 1980, and 1983. Best I could find. Hope it helps

Kawasaki motor bike with serial number 64-084221. Require model and year of manufacture.

Hi, Carol the numbers you gave me look like engine serial numbers which are very difficult to decode. 1980 and later bikes have a 17 digit VIN # usually stamped on the fork neck or labeled on the front down tubes consisting of letters and numbers. I need the VIN # in order to provide the information you requested. Please click on the word "COMMENT" below and provide this information in the box that will open and then click on the green comment box in the bottom right-hand corner after it posts I will receive an "ALERT" icon that will allow me to respond to your information. Good luck and have a wonderful day.

Year of manufacture of Johnson 40Hp outboard Model No AJ40BALE1A Serial No. G02651879

Near as I can tell, it's a 1979. As of 1980, Johnson/Evinrude used two LETTERS at the end of the model number to designate the year. (See attached) Your model number ends in a number and letter (1A) which leads me to believe it's earlier than 1980. Prior to 1980, the last two numbers of the serial number were the year. That's how I surmised yours is a 1979, by the last two of the serial. G02651879

Hope this helps.

I bought a Polaris trail boss 250. I need the serial number. Could it be *1560086*

The serial number on most Polaris atvs are on the left side bottom frame behind the front wheel and will consist of 17 digits. Older Polaris atvs, however, did not have to use the 17 digit VIN because there wasn't a standard set in place. For these atvs check the right frame support by the shift lever. There should be a number stamped in place and will have asterisks before and after like the number you have posted. I can't be for sure if the number you have is correct, but it sounds pretty good. You can call a polaris dealer with the number and they can put it into the polaris website to check for sure.

I am looking to check and see if by the stamp on my kawasaki motorcycle engine you can tell me what year and model the engine is

The engine number is worthless. The frame number is the key. If your bike is 1980 or so, pray that it has 17 alpha numeric digits in the number. Les than 17 and finding the information requested is pretty hard. If it does have 17 digits, go to this website tombones49_296.gif

Kx250k-023922 is frame no and kx250ke018659 is engine no. can anyone one tell me what year this bike is. thanks

If it were 2000 and newer the frame number would be 17 digits long and the tenth digit from the left would designate the year. Even the older bikes have more digits than what is shown. Bottom line is that the numbers are not all there. Sorry.
