No idea xtrock?

I think both mine are 3TB's - 1999 XT600E and a 2001 XT600E. I presume from this that the quoted dates may need updating on the list?

My 1999 XT6E was brought in Warsaw, Poland by a British soldier serving in NATO. He rode it home a year later and I bought it off him. I still have the shop receipt and import docs etc.

I will update the dates when someone is able to confirm they need it.

Yamaha finally hit the STOP button in 2004 with the XT600E model.... PITY! I think it would be a huge seller today...

Ok i found it, J is for Japan.

Universal VIN Decoder


1st character- Identifies the country in which the vehicle was manufactured.
For example: U.S.A.(1or 4), Canada(2), Mexico(3), Japan(J), Korea(K), England(S), Germany(W), Italy(Z)


They still have the XT660 so they didnt stop making the XT? I have been riding the HD Fatboy and the HD Ultra classic(450kg) and i tell you the XT felt like a bicycle after, but damn the XT is easy riding in the city, with them big bikes you have to always think how to stop/ park and get the balance right before you stop..For me its importan that bikeriding is easy!

The list above is before they went to the modern 17 digit vin codes which don't show up on these current online vin checkers.

Same goes for the Tenere models from the 80`s & 90`s (they dont use the 17 digit code) but you can see them if you click the link below.

I'm not convinced by that list, Neil - I think your XT6Es are both 4PTs, being from the 1996(late-95?)-2003 period (not sure of the 3TB chronology stated there, nor 'one or two' others - E.g. wasn't that later Swiss variant a '4SL7' and whatever was a DJ021).

3TBs preceded them (the 4PT, that is) from 1989 only as far as 1996 or late-1995.

Be careful before importing other websites' error into the venerable HUBB

Just for the record the 3UW is a restricted 3TB.

I don't know the extent of the restriction (i.e. jets, headers etc) but I know the carb rubbers were different.

In all other respects they are a 3TB.

Its OK if you are not convinced,no one will push you into that.I have made it with an official yamaha dealer codex.There are listed all yamaha bike builds from the first to the last in 2010.
Now you could at least tell me why is that an error?

I thought I already had. Neil's (and my, and many others') 4PTs seem to be listed as DJ021 and the Swiss variant of the 4PT, the 4SL7, seems to be listed instead in the 3UX row. I don't know what else is questionable within that list but the complete omission of those two models and their inclusion within a different strand would seem to deprecate it as a definitive guide. It might be 100% accurate for the older models, though.

You say you "made it with an official yamaha dealer codex" but not THE 'official Yamaha dealer codex'... And all I can say on that score is that my local 'official Yamaha dealer' (UK, 'EUR') understands and identifies with the 4PT model and so, it seems, does his dealer parts system and other Yamaha 'literature'.

Checked the original yamaha codex today.
We are talking of frame codes.Not engine codes.4PT1 started with the 1995 3TB.It goes untill 4PT9 from 1999.Then it changes into 4PTA and ends in 4PTB in 2002.
4PT9 starts with new frame code DJ021......
Its not an error.You mixed codes

Oh I seeee! Right, frame-code prefixes - NOT model codes. That makes far more sense, particularly as some of your quoted frame-code-prefixes do double as model codes.
Not my error: you mixed words (or titles/headings).

I have a US '88 Xt600U and the code shows a 3EW, but the list shows that as an '89, plus it was states the first character was for the country. I don't follow that one especially when the US is supposed to be a 1 or 4 and mine has neither number in the entire VIN. JYA3EWE5JA******

What?

I thought you said your list didn't have errors, and that we had misconstrued the codes as being model codes - because of their heading being "Model Codes" - when in fact they were prefixes to the frame-codes. Well, it seemed to confuse Neil and I was somewhat bemused too.

No need to get arsey about it, Karl - I was merely pointing out that NO! I didn't 'mix codes', you mixed terms. You can't say that they're actually not what you listed them as - especially as many of those frame-code prefixes do actually equate to the model code! - and then claim that is our mistake and not yours. Bloomin' cheek!
