Default What's with the small variations at the end of model numbers??

I own a 2001 Yamaha XVS650...but I'm not sure if it's a XVS-650-AN or 650-ANC or 650-N or 650-NC...what with the small variation at the end of the models? What is the difference among all thses bikes? I recently downloaded a manual and it says "XVS 650 AK(C) " I'm LOST here! Need some help! Thank you people!

Get the VIN number off of the frame. There are several search engines that will give you the model number.

They are all the same as long as it's the XVS650 model within the same year. The letter's are going to indicate specific model of this bike the XVS650 and also the color. Remeber that theres four models of that perticular bike all the same engines and frames.

This would be the breakdown for 2010 but it doesnt matter if your trying to get the correct manual, just get the custom or the classic manual they both have the exact same engines and frames.

VStar 650 Silverado XVS65ATYB/C full dresser

VStar 650 Classic XVS65AYS/C same as above except (no bags, no screen, no bckrst)

VStar 650 Midnight Custom XVS65YC/Custom (small front fender,drag bars)

VStar 650 Custom XV65TL/C same bike as above different color

Good luck!
