    I have an extra TW200 motor but do not know the year model. How do you use the serial number on the engine to determine the year?

    This was all I could find.... Might or might not work.... If all else fails call or email your local dealer.

    Maybe we should have a sticky thread where we all enter in our bike year and engine numbers? That should be enough to narrow down a year...

    The short answer is that you can't. There aren't enough identifiers.



    You can narrow it down by the type of camchain adjuster, stator and carburetor.



    There are 3 basic "series" of motors. All are mechanically identical except for carbs, camchain tensioner and stator type.



    87-only has a manual camchain tensioner, slide carburetor and seperate lighting coil in the left sidecover. '88-'00 have a manual camchain tensioner, slide carb and single-phase charging system. '01-up have an automatic tensioner, CV carb and three-phase chatging system.



    '01-up also typically have 8mm hex head bolts on the side covers and crankcase halves, but that isn't neccessarily set in stone. Early motors have JIS Phillips head screws.



    I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

    Powdercoated '87 frame, extended swingarm, YZ fork legs, ATV tire, 14/55, XT350 tank, spliced quick-release seat, disc brake conversion, beeg headlight, beeger rack, Lizrdcooler, Lizrdventz and bunch of other stuff all covered in invisible ink.

    Thanks. I knew it wasn't a 1987 but was curious what year model it is. It has no carburetor on it but from you information, it has to be a 1988 to 2000.
