I purchased a rm 125 from a friend that had it for awhile. I want to find out the year it is so I can start modding. Any help would be greatly appreciated :cool:

A – 1980
B – 1981
C – 1982
D – 1983
E – 1984
F – 1985
G – 1986
H – 1987
I – not used
J – 1988
K – 1989
L – 1990
M – 1991
N – 1992
O – not used
P – 1993

T – 1996
U – not used

Beginning with 2001, numbers are used to designate the model year.

1 – 2001
2 – 2002
3 – 2003
4 – 2004
5 – 2005
6 – 2006
7 – 2007
8 – 2008
9 -- 2009

Your list is really close except, 1980 was the T model and didn't use a letter in the VIN. After that, they did. 1981 was the X model which had the B in the VIN. Plus, it should be the 9th digit or letter just before the numbers. Either way, he needs to post his VIN off of the frame to get the correct year and possibly model.
