What Model and What Year is My Yamaha Golf Cart

What Year is My Yamaha Golf Cart

If you are trying to determine the year of your Yamaha golf cart, you will first need to find the golf cart’s identification plate or sticker or have the vehicle’s serial number and date code. Usually found under the seat, under the driver side glove box area or on the chassis towards the rear of the golf cart. Under the bumper area usually. Once you have located this you can use the chart below to cross-reference those numbers and determine the year and model of your Yamaha Golf Cart.
