Hey I was just wondering, I know some of you might have wonder the same question. Is there a different code name between the 99'-02 R6 and the 03'-04' R6's. Something along the lines like chassis code. For example 240SX's there are the S13 for 89-93 S14 for 95-98 S15 for 99-.
Like in a conversation you wouldn't have to say its a 99'-02 R6 or a 03'-04' R6.

ANY HELPERS OUT THERE

My '03, as per the owners manual, has the offical title of YZF-R6R(C).
02's may be (B)'s and so on. Would have to have someone with another year confirm.
I dont think much was changed on the '04 so that may be a (D)?
Just a shot in the dark at answering your question.....

YZF-R6R(C) is regular edition for California.

There is a special edition for California
Regular edition for everyone else outside of CA
Special edition for everyone else outside of CA.

I don't know there code right now.

To answer your guestion, I would be guessing you would say the Deltabox II, Deltabox III, Deltabox IV. But I don't think that people would know or pay enough attention to the Deltabox frame number.

I would just say the 03 R6.

I know with the YZ80 and 125's they went up by letter. I had a YZ80 every year starting with C (1976) through the YZ80 K (1985)
Then moved up to the 125 class.

It's possible that they did the same thing with the R6 in some form.

Did you buy it new?

Here are other code

YZF-R6R
YZF-R6SR - Special Edition
YZF-R6RC
YZF-R6SRC
YZF-R6SS - I heard these are with flame

That is all that I can come up with. I could be wrong but it does make sense.
