What is the serial number and build date of your WR500?
« on: September 05, 2009, 12:09:59 AM »
I thought it would be interesting to find out the build sequences of our bikes, so here is what I have so far:

Jonas Banonas, Hokon, Sweden:
1992 WR500 VIN JYA4AAWOINA000243, sold in Europe/Sweden

Dan Burk, Haslett, MI USA:
1992 WR500 VIN JYA4AAW07NA000263, built about February, 1991 and sold in USA

Doug Chestnutt, Colorado, USA
1992 WR500 WIN JYA4AA***NA000442, originally sold in March/April 1991 in Colorado, USA

I will do ASAP. Working away at the momment. So was there 1000 in total for the three years? And is yours a genuine 92'? The reason i ask that my bike come out with the different sticker kit, and yours what Australian's relate to is a 93'by graphic design. I have checked my numbers to find out it was a 92' but advertised as a 93' when for auctioned on ebay.

Cheers,

Wixee.

Remember that the last six digits of the VIN represent build sequence, and that the WR numbers started at 000101. Thus, all you need to do is subtract 100 to find out your build sequence. DAR, at first indication, yours would seem to indicate that the build sequence is 6,000 units into the build. However, the central part of your VIN, "WO2PA" 2 represents the check digit, but the PA would indicate that it was built and badged as a 1993 model. Maybe the VIN sequencing is different for 1993. 6443.. I wonder if they started the VIN out at 6000-series for 1993...

One clue is here: http://www.maybenow.com/What-are-the-specs-of-a-1993-wr500-yamaha-motor-cycle-q14327656

It appears that in 1993, the WR500 VIN sequence started at 006101, and went up from there.  Thus, your bike is most likely # 343 off the assembly line in 1993. 

What we do not know quite yet, is what's the HIGHEST VIN sequence we'll see for the 1992 and 1993 model?

For the 1992 bikes, 000101 appears to be the start. For 1993, 006101 appears to be the starting point.

Has anyone picked up a WR500 since September of 2009? If so, I would be very interested to see the published VIN, especially the last five digits.

I would like to ask WRFUN to please take the seat of your WR out, and take a look at the stamped built date on the fuel tank (that little circles like clocks). If the tank is original, we might get an idea which month it was made (at least the tank).

What about the manufacturing date code on the rims ? That's if the WR's used DID rims.

Hey WR500 Fans,

I will add mine to the mix, engine number 4AA-006236, vin number is hard to decipher (to much paint) will check tank and guard 'circle' build date stamps. History from original owner was that he bought it in 1993 from a country bike dealer, as with much of this thread that information does not determine build date.

Hope someone is keeping up with all these numbers, do we need an accountant, banker, bean counter.....

Let me know your findings Professors Thiago and ws6transam  ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

thanks thiago its always good to have an expert opinion on things.Even though yamaha say they might have only built a thousand i find it a bit hard to believe.1000 would only be a round figure i think.Even so,it still makes our bikes that bit harder to find and probably that bit more desirable.

It's hard to find a dealer these days who knows about the old models. Our local Yamaha dealer only bothers with bikes up to 10 Years old. Another dealer that is a bit further away trades in the Yamaha Offroad range as well, and knows the older bikes a bit better. But you do get the impression that he can't really be arsed to hunt down the parts and info.

As for Yamaha UK, well they are only interested in selling R1's and R6's. Met a few of the Yamaha UK Management at various bike shows and they clearly have to ' tow the corporate line '. That is, selling high volumes of sports bikes at discounted prices.

I also find it hard to believe that on 1000 were made? The basis for my reckoning is that I grew up in a small country town in the middle of Bum f__k nowhere South Australia and when they were released there where two in the town and the one I bought was only 350km away? Not unless I was extremely lucky to see so many of these extinct bikes in one very small area of the world, some how I don't think so?

However on the flip side I would love to be proven incorrect in my scepticism

Ok. Can't read the VIN Number but the Engine Number on mine is 4AA-001364. The tank is imprinted with 10/91. Hope this helps.

So, what's the consensus? Is it safe to say that more than 1000 units were manufactured for the 1991/1992 model year? ...but probably less than 1500?

An article that I found on the WR500, the last paragraph indicates a number of units produced? Have no idea or reputaion of the author of the article though?

I'm new to the group. After years of riding 501 4T Husabergs, I got to jonesin' for a big bore 2T for simplicity, reliability, and ease of maintenance. Having raced Yamaha's for all my life, prior to the Bergs, the WR500 was the only bike that really fit the bill.  I picked up a running wreck last week with the intention of fixing it over the winter and riding some supermoto and hare scramble events in the spring. My bike is a 93 and the number is PA006280.

Just looked at the WR that I picked up tonight - engine number is 4AA-006446. VIN number is JYA4AAW08PA006446, so i'm guessing a matching number "93 model bike. Any idea how to work out which month?

In my WR the engine number does not exist  :o

 They must had the part changed.

But the frame number is JYA4AAW09NA00202

So what year is mine?

I have had 79 yz 400, 81 yz 465, 3 diffearnt 82 yz 490, and a 89 yz 490. I have wanted a wr 500 for along time and finaly got one it is rough, frame painted red plastic painted black. It is almost complete but has eletrical issues It look looks s like it could have a bad stator, coil, and the cdi is falling apart. the coil tests bad as well as the stator, it was wired wrong when I got it so who knows what all they messed up.

Luckily the electrics are pretty simple on this bike. If you need a new lighting coil, any old KX500 aftermarket coil will do. If you need a CDI, I suspect a late 80's YZ490 pack will do the trick. As for the stator coil, same deal, a YZ one will do. The flywheel is actually identical to the IT250 / IT490/ YZ465 etcetera so those are pretty common.

You should have it running in no time and you'll enjoy the machine for sure!

Hi all, I have just been looking through an issue of ''Motorcycle trader'' 2002 and came across two Yamaha WR 500s, first one selling from Ringwood in Melbourne for $3300 frame number 1379. Second bike selling from Newcastle for $3195 frame number 1843. I was wondering if anyone has any knowlege of these bikes? Cheers Rob.

My '92 WR500 is in North East Pennsylvania, but I wrote down the VIN for security:  ...8NA000417.  It was probably sold from a dealer in the Philadelphia (Pennsylvania) Metro Area.

So, how many serial numbers does that now make? We should tally them up.
