help - have a yamaha question


Junior Member
I am thinking of buying some used yamaha absolutes birchs. A guy in Jersey (there's a joke in there somewhere) has some for sale, 2001, but the badges are glued on not screwed on.
All the ones I see have the badges screwed on or grommeted on. Is this legit?

thanks for your help!!

Yamaha began screwing the badges on the absolute line in around 2003-2004 I believe. The lugs, mounts and hoops and colour all appear to be correct for the absolute line in 2001.
