ATV Year Code Chart

Here is a chart that I made that will help you identify what year your ATV is, by using the VIN. To use the chart, just find the 10th digit of your VIN, whether it be a number or letter, and match it up with the chart to find the year of your quad.

Most 4-wheeler problems are caused by a loose nut connecting the handlebars and the seat!!

You only need two tools in life -- WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the WD-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.

I know we had a chart similar to this before, but it got deleted, probably because it came from another site and I guess they didn't want us using it. LOL. This time, I made my own, so we wouldn't have that problem. This one's better because I extended it for another 10 years. The other one only went up to 2010.

By the way, this same chart will work for automobiles, too.

Thanks. Yeah, it will work on any motor vehicle with a 17 digit VIN.

Thanks. They didn't use the letters "I" or "Q", either. Another reason that they don't use the number zero, the letter O, and the letter Q, is that it's too easy to mistake one for the other when dealing with the VIN. Same thing with the letter "I", it's too easy to mistake it for a "1" or an "L". It would be easy to mistake one for the other, since it's hard to see the engraved/stamped numbers and letters on the frame, especially a dirty or rusted frame.
