Just bought a RM 125, the guy said it was a 08 model (he also said he said a couple more evident lies so didnt believe him). Checked the vin number and it seems it is a 2000 model but im not sure, can someone confirm?

That is the European vin type Not the common 10th number id type. A picture of bike would help more..

Rm got honda break line routing in 04

Bronze andonicing on the fork caps in 05

Think they got fat bar in 06

I see the fork guard guides was removed in 07, and bigger drill holes in rear disc.

Send a pic. Youd be able to tell if its a 2000 or '01 era bike by the plastics.

In the US I'm pretty sure the 07 was the last year for the 125, and 08 for the 250

Thats older its 01-03 you can see on the brake routing goes under the forks, and also it got the 01-02 front disc.

Seatcover is black and got the suzuki logo on the seat that to me makes me think its a 2001

def not 05-08. This is 01-03. You can tell by the linkage, suspension, rear brake master cylinder, and front brake routing.
