    its not painted over cuz i cleaned that area down to bear metal where everyone says it should be and theres nothing there. i just want to find it to make sure the title i received with it is for this bike and to pinpoint the year.

    i used about 600 grit sand paper cuz i knew yamaha doesnt stamp them deep. thats right where i looked for it i took the paint off from the lower a arm mount all the way back to the foot peg and no luck. im wondering if they stamped them some where else in the early 90s or.....could this be an aftermarket frame??

    could be a replacement frame. but, idk if they have titles...im not sure how those work out....but 600 grit, may have taken it off....paint stripper would have been your best bet....
