I have a Yamaha Exciter 440 that says "Exciter" on the front, not "EX440".
Can anyone give me an idea of what year it is or how I would figure out what year this sled is? It is white with a red seat and red stripes.
wow thats one of the old Exciters! i would guess a 70s model...but like the other guys said check the vin number...the last 4 digets should be the year...i knew it was like that on the Polaris but wasnt sure about Yamaha.
1977 eh? I'll take your advice and double check with a dealer. Any idea if there are parts available for this sled? I need a carb intake boot as the one on it is leaking.
Any idea what its worth in fair to good working condition? It runs pretty good but I dont want to really stretch it until I get the intake boot replaced. I picked it up from a local farmer and he said it was sitting in his barn for about 3-4 years. Was $600USD too much to pay for a starter sled for my wife?
Thanks for the info!
P.S. I am looking for a hood for the 1979 Kawasaki Drifter I mentioned before that is my sled. Also, what do you guys recommend for a starter sled for 8-9 yr old boys? Any experience with "Junior" sleds?
Paul Pope from the 70's band Molkie Cole is a friend of mine. He also plays with Phil James from Molkie Cole in a band called Outta Dodge. Ever hear of any of those bands? I'm showing my age I know. 9-)
Let me know what you hear on the Drifter 440 Hood.
Wow! SMALL WORLD INDEED!!!
Dawn is Paul's brother Elvis's wife.
I think Pat is Pat Beckwith who did sound or lights or something for the Outta Dodge band. Did you ever see them play the Labor Day bash in the park in Lorain?
Let me know if you have a line on a hood for the drifter, I can pick it up next time I'm visiting Elyria.
