I don't think that's the way it works. If that were true, then mine would be a 1950's model. BlasterCentral used to have an article on how to tell the model year by looking at a letter in the VIN. I can't remember how it worked though.FasterBlaster25 said:there will be 2 numbers before the last 4 numbers in the serial.
If its 00 its a 2000 model, etc.
My engine’s number is 3JM-378700 any help with the year and model. I was told it’s a 2006 Blaster 250BlueBlaster01 To the Rescue :razz: Year and Model Engine Serial Number* 1988 YFS200U 2XJ-000101-on 1989 YFS200W 3JM-000101-on 1990 YFS200A 3JM-046101-on 1991 YFS200B 3JM-0901101-on 1992 YFS200D 3JM-113101-on 1993 YFS200E 3JM-142101-on 1994 YFS200F 3JM-160101-on 1995 YFS200G 3JM-179101-on 1996 YFS200H 3JM-206101-on 1997 YFS200J 3JM-130101-on 1998 YFS200K 3JM-262637-on 1999 YFS200L 3JM-289187-on 2000 YFS200M 3JM-317393-on 2001 YFS200N 3JM-344326-on *Models sold in Maine and New Hampshire have different frame numbers.
