How will I know that the part fits my bike?
All our products are exact reproductions of Yamaha original parts. Some products Yamaha manufactured under several different serial numbers and where that is applicable, we have the alternatives mentioned in the item description. Compatible motorcycle models that we were able to find are listed in product description. Some products fit way too many models to practically list so please refer to your parts list for reference whether this particular part number fits your model.
Do your parts fit all mentioned compatible models?
To compile the list of compatible models, we have done an extensive research to locate as many models with that particular part serial number. However, we know that Yamaha slightly amended models for different markets or perhaps your model is using a component out of another model, so we encourage all our customers to always refer to their parts manual and read full description including dimensions of the product before ordering. If you need any further information, please feel free to Contact us.
