RM125 engine identification

We have a RM125 . The VIN says it is a 2001. We need to order a water pump impeller and seal for it, but when we ordered one for a 2001, it did not match. I suspect that the motor is a different year. My question: Is there a listing giving the year model of engines? Any help would be appreciated.

Not sure with Suzuki, but I know some manufacturers use a similar number on the engine to that in the VIN #. I know Yamaha uses a product code in their
engine #'s, but not sure if you can tell what year it is from that #.

The 10th digit of your VIN should be a 1 if it's a 2001.

What you can do is look for that part for a 2001 on an online microfiche -- most dealers have them -- just Google "Suzuki parts fiche". Write down the part #, then redo the year model (up or down) in the fiche & compare part #'s. Usually a manufacturer will use the same part for a number of years before redesigning. Go up & down year by year & compare. This might lead you to find out how many times that particular part has been changed. If your lucky, it won't be many!

Another possibility is that there are 2 or more different types of impellers/seals for the same model. I ran into this with a CR125. Check several different fiche's to be sure because some don't show the different part #'s
