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:

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.

It could but its not. The 98 has a different rear linkage and the 97 has less underhang on the forks under the axle. The plastic cover on the right fork does not fit a 97 correctly.

Thats a cool looking 250...as far as the plastics getting scratched I dont care cause im on slicks for stunting......plus they are cheap! I've found the all the plastics except for the gas tank......sucks because everyone that makes a tank is for a 01 or newer...

Anybody got a hook-up on fork seals and wipers? Not gunna pay 80 dollars at the local store just for seals. Dealerships piss me off

check E*AY for the seals and stuff, i got new seals for $3, are you talking about black shrouds for the tank that you cant find or an actual black tank? Did you get the 10th digit yet of the VIN for us??
