It should be stamped on the fork tube. I was wondering the year of my 175dt and that's where I found it. Hope this is helpful to ya.

Shurely you mean the steering head [ frame] . The tube is the chrome section of forks, and are often changed over the years. smile.gif

Post the numbers stamped on the frame headstock (as described by Blackhat 250) here. I have a Yamaha dealer only microfiche with production year of Yamahas made between 1961 and 1992 and should be able to provide you with an answer. If the engine is original, I might be able to do the same thing with the engine number.

Taken from the Haynes manual for the DT125R 1369177_1.jpg

The original DT125R(code 3DB1) model was replaced in 1989 by the 3RN1 model. Apart from the new paintwork and graphics the only change was to the top end of the engine, together with flat-slide carburettor. The 3RN1 model was superseded by 3RN2 at the beginning of 1990 and by the 3RN4 model at the beginning of 1991; differing only in colour and graphics. Later versions of the DT125R(3RN6,3RN7 and 3RN8) differed only in colour and graphics.

To help owners identify their machines, the approximate dates of import are given below, with the initial engine and frame number with which each models production run commenced.

****model**********date of imports********engine number/frame number

Dt125r 3DB1*******Apr'88 to May;89**************3DB-000101

Dt125r 3RN1*******May'89 to Feb'90**************3MD-000101

Dt125r 3RN2*******Feb'90 to Dec'90**************3MD-008101

Dt125r 3RN4*******Jan'91 to Feb'93**************3MD-018101

Dt125r 3RN6*******Feb'93 to Jan'94**************3MD-036101

Dt125r 3RN7*******Jan'94 to Nov'94**************3MD-037101

Dt125r 3RN8*******Nov'94 to ??????**************3MD-039101

Its an old manual so doesn't have the later model numbers.

If your just after spares look for either a 3DB or 3RN number on the top of the cylinder head as there isn't much change in the later models.

hope this helps
