TDM900
QUOTE(steveglover)
Look under the seat for a sticky label with a 5PS number on it.
5PS1 or 5PS2 is 2002 TDM900(P).
5PS4 or 5PS5 is 2003
5PS6 or 5PS7 is 2004
5PS9 and 5PS10 are 2005, etc, but I'm not 100% sure.

Hello! I'm new here! I ordered a new TDM900 two days ago, and would like to verify that they'll really sell me newest model.. So how is 2006 marked?

If 2005 is like this
5PS9 and 5PS10 are 2005

5PS11 and 5PS12 --->> 2006 model ? Is it like this?

Long live this nice forum!

Well,
today I had a chance to see the machine, struggled the seat off and sticker was rigth there '5PS 30' written on it. The salesman realised what I was after, then he showed me the brake tubes with dates '04/06' written on them => April 2006. This seems to be clear way of checking new motos. Cannot be older than that I guess.

By the way, this machine is quite rare in Argentina.

well it's definitely a '98 then. There are advantages to that though, the carbs are rebuildable and........................well that's the only advantage, the only disadvantage is that the later ones 've got a better gearbox.

Mine is a '98 bike os a '00 reg, an is Nitrams, it seems to be a very common occourance.

don't worry too much about it Robizhood, i just hope the dealer/ seller didn't convince you it was a 2000 bike and that you didn't pay too much "Lire" for it !! 4TX3 = 1998. w

I found this bike on ebay, the day after I went to see it on Uxbridge, left a deposit and the day after I went to collect it.
The bike comes with a HPI document stating that it is from 2000, I think this bike had been for a while inside the shop before they gave it away.
Anyway... it is the bike that I was looking for, and I paid only 1.500, it is in well good conditions and it needs only to be polished and rided. banana.gif

Patrik, if you have the pictures uploaded to the web (places like Photobucket) you can 'insert' them in the post using the insert image button. It looks like a picture of a tree.
