Here is some basic info that will help you find your cart’s serial number, model number, and year. If you didn’t know where to look I hope this will help you out.
For 81 and newer the serial number is just under the glove box on the passenger side. For older than 81 lift the seat and look for the aluminum I beam that is close to the battery on the drivers side. If it has two brake pedals it is between 1975-1980
For 94-present there is a plate in the glove box on the passengers side of the cart. The year can be identified by the manufacturers number not the serial number. For 1976 1993 the plate is located under the glove box and as before the year can be determined by the manufacturers number not the serial number.
Well Yamahas are a little more tricky because they change model numbers often but this should help.
First find the serial number. Then match the serial number to the chart below to find the year.
Serial Number Location
G1 Found under the rear bumper stamped into the square cross member of frame
G2 found under the rear bumper stamped into the square cross member of the frame on the passengers side of vehicle
G2 (88-90) found under the seat where the floor board meets the engine
G9 found under the seat where the floorboard meets the engine compartment
G14/G16/G19/G20 Found running vertically just under the glove box on the far left of the drivers side
