Yamaha's website doesn't offer an all-terrain vehicle identification number decoder. However, several other reliable organizations, such as Cyclepedia and National Insurance Crime Bureau, offer free online VIN decoding and VIN checking services, respectively.
Cyclepedia's VIN decoder tool determines the year, make and model of the most popular ATVs. The site provides the vehicle identifier section, vehicle descriptor section, check digit, plant code, model year, world manufacturer identifier, manufacturer identifier and sequential number of production.
National Insurance Crime Bureau's VinCheck offers information on the vehicle’s history, including if it was reported stolen but not recovered or if it has been marked as a salvage vehicle by cooperating NICB member insurance companies.
