PostSubject: Serial Numbers   Sun Mar 18, 2012 3:10 am

Help! I'm on a 2000 T-Dub in Dhaka, Bangladesh. I ordered new cables from the States via i-net, using the parts catalog for the year an model. The clutch cable was fine, but the throttle cable was approximately 2" too short. I don't think there have been any mods to the bike, such as different handlebars installed. The parts supplier will replace the short cable with the proper one, but they need the serial number of the bike.

There are two serial numbers, both different. One is on the down-post of the handlebar and is the frame number. The other is on the engine. They are both 7-digit numbers. My research has led me to believe that the bike was manufactured in Japan for the domestic market there, and the numbering system is different than the protracted VIN we have in the States.

I'm wondering, does anybody have a clue how I can decipher the numbers to indicate exactly what I have and subsequently enable me to be able to order proper parts? Thanks!

That might be a tough one. I am going to 'cut and paste' your question and post it on the other forum and see what we get. I will provide you a link, and repost here as well. Good luck. Gerry

Peruano, a fellow on the other forum posted this a couple of years ago. Hope it helps. You mention that your "cable" is to short. On my 2006 my carb has two cables. I did a search on part numbers for the throttle. A 1999 cable is (2jx-26302-00-00). The 2000 is listed to require a 2jx-26241-01-00. Likely you got one of those two, and need the other. The 2001 uses a completely different carburator (like all the newer models) and requires a 5lb-26302-01-00. Perhaps with these numbers you can tell what you got, and your best 'exchange' option. Gerry

your model should read TW200x. the x being Yamaha's model year code.

M = 2000, N = 2001, P = 2002, R = 2003, S = 2004, T = 2005

my '05 would be a TW200T

Just to confuse everyone:

Yamaha also uses a unique number for each of its motorcycles known as a Primary ID number. This PID consists of a 3 or 5 digit prefix and a 6 digit serial number. The PID is extracted from the 17 digit VIN. To determine the prefix you need to look at the 4th digit in the VIN. If the 4th digit is a letter, then your PID prefix will be 5 digits (4th through 8th digit of the VIN). If the 4th digit is a number (this is where it gets tricky) wether it is a 3 or 5 digit prefix depends on the 7th digit. If the 7th digit is a letter, you would only use a 3 digit prefix (the 4th, 5th, and 6th digits of the VIN). If the 7th digit is a number, you would use a 5 digit prefix (4th through 8th of the VIN). For the 6 digit serial number following the prefix, you just use the last 6 numbers of the VIN.

example1: JYARJ08E45A003923 --- since the 4th digit is a letter, your PID prefix would be 5 digits "RJ08E" followed by the last 6 numbers of the VIN "003923" - so this bike's PID is RJ08E-003923 and the 10th digit gives you the year...in this case the "3" indicates it is a 2003.

example2: JY43GG03X2C028857 --- here the 4th digit is a number so we look to the 7th digit to see if it is a 3 or 5 digit prefix. in this case it is a number making this a 5 digit prefix "3GG03" - so this bike's PID = 3GG03-028857 and it is a 2002

example3: JY43GDW06WA199964 ---here the 4th is a number but the 7th is a letter which makes it a 3 digit prefix "3GD" - so this bike's PID = 3GD-199964

have fun...

once again, thanks for your feedback. VERY strange. i am using a year 2000 parts manual downloaded from a site recommended by either this forum or the other T-Dub forum. the part number listed in the 2000 manual for a throttle cable is 2JX-26302-01-00. but for the '01', it is the same part # you have given for the 1999 cable. that is the cable i presently have that does not fit. how'd that happen? i will ask my supplier if they'd take the time to measure the part you list as the 2000 cable to see if it is, indeed, approx. 2" longer.

as for the numbering system, my chassis # is 0085xx8 and the engine # is 0084xx5 (i replaced the real numbers with "x's" here to protect the innocent). it
is a seven-digit system which, i am led to believe, is a designation of machines intended for the jap. domestic mkt.

hope you are having many adventures in paradise. thanks again.

Yes, Yamaha seemed (for whatever reason) to flipflop and use cables again on a different model year. I suspect for you, your bike was made early or late in the year and there was a cable change. I would be inclined to try the 1999 cable unless you bike has the newer carb design. Stand-out feature of the new carb is a fairly large circular black plastic diaphram cap on the top of the carb. If this is the case, then you need the 2001 cable. My guess anyway. Good luck. Gerry

yep. sure enough, gerry. the carb's got a big round plastic cover on the top. given your info, i'm inclined toward the 2001 cable which is, in fact, different than that listed for 2000. i'm still gonna try to check with yamaha corp to try to make sense out of the serial ## i have. i'm currently in bangladesh and, with the time difference it's hard to coordinate a good time to call them. i shall report back once/if i get an answer. thank you again for all your good counsel!
