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.

Yamaha – Ultima 36v AKA = G14E 

The G14 is the next model in line to replace the electric G9 as the G11 models where only updated for the gas carts. Finding the serial number on these carts was easy enough. Just look under the drivers seat toward the control pedals. Though some have been found in the glove box area. Apparently, some of the Yamaha team members in assembly didn’t get the memo.

Yamaha – Fleet Master AKA = G9E 

The G9 model golf cart continued with the sleek styling but added a little weird like seat back post. Iconic with these carts because they soon after axed the idea for a sleeker look in models to come. The serial number once again is under the seat again towards the front.

Yamaha – Sun Classic AKA = G5E
