So i was looking at a tdub on craigslist that didn't mention the year. it looked like it had been rattle canned, and i was trying to figure out what year it was based on different clues. i thought this collection might help someone else.

all pics are, to the best of my knowledge, stock correct for the listed year. if anyone finds errors please let me know.


1987- two styles (note the blue one's seat was blue stock)

Here is the other color for 1991. The only known change on my bike is the side cover should be white and I think with Electric on them. PO changed them and could only find black ones.

The black one you show is called ONYX and I never have heard the name of this Purple model.



Nice pictorial and we should get it all complete and post it as a sticky.

Joeband, Were you looking at the tw in north sacramento? Guy says he bought in garage sale and now trying to sell it for $750 (no title). He probably picked it up for about $200......

i ran out of room up above, so i'm deleting my previous comments (thanks mike and gary) squeezing in and continuing the pics here.

2016. looks to be like the 2015, but blue tank and fender.
long live the t-dub!

2017.
i was kinda hoping for something special for the for the 30th anniversary model, but it maintains the white plastic, and mineral blue tank and front fender. hard to say if the blue is the same as the '16, but the tank does have a gold stripe under TW logo instead of silver.

2018.
Gold, gold and more gold, well it looks like gold, but it's called sandy beige highlights on the tank cowl and solid beige fenders. maintains black rims.

Here you go. I am not sure what years they did this on but I particularly like the embossed Yamaha symbols in the red stripes.

That link appears to be just a stock photo and it won't work for me.

Some Notes:

Red frames 87-89
Blue frames 87-89, 94-97. 2002 (not all blue frames are the same color code)
Black frames 90-93
Silver frames 98-14 (with the exception of 2002)
All JDM frames were black (with the exception of the SE TW225)
White frame 2007 JDM special edition orange bike

I believe most JDM bikes prior to the mid 90's were the same colors (frames, plastics, tank) as the USA bikes, The EU TW125's had their own colors.
