The Yamaha Blaster ATV (all-terrain vehicle) has been sold in the U.S. from 1988 to 2006. It is designed for taut handling and the front and rear suspension tames are meant to ensure a smooth ride. The year of your Blaster can be determined by locating the VIN number on your vehicle and matching a digit to a chart determining vehicle year.

Step 1

Locate the VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) on the frame of your Yamaha Blaster. It is stamped on the frame near the left foot peg.

Step 2

Determine the 10th digit or letter of the VIN number.
