Pull the seat and see if the vin # and manufacture date sticker are on the top of the frame. If it is then add a year to the manufacture date to get the model year. You should have the vin also and a dealer should be able to tell you from that

My 06 is digital also. From the plastic I thought it was somewhere between 06-12 but the Speedo has me confused. Wonder if someone switched it and if so I would like to know how because my 06 needs a working cluster
I looked closer at the pictures and the plastics look like 05 and older. has the plastic racks and front facia panel is different from the 06 and up. Plus the speedo is 05 and older style. I didn't look very close the first time

Yeah the front emblem is different from mine also.

Always looking to learn more, love me some 400s!

Guess we wont know till he tells us...
We should start a poll, closest guess wins a trip to kentucky to go exploring, 400 style.

my green one was 06/2005 and the yellow max is 01/2006 which I guess is earlier enough in 06 to still be an 06 model

yup, I did on my 06 max. I had to convert it to the 08 and up style voltage regulator. I also have another 06 that still has the original voltage regulator that is still working.

Is there a link to making this conversion? I think I'm headed toward replacing mine on an '04. It has been relocated in the past but I don't know any other history. It does have two connectors on it as well.

Thank you for the quick response. Before if purchased a new part, I checked my stator with my voltage meter. Ohms readings looked good on all terminals. I checked continuity to make sure nothing was grounded from the stator. Nothing abnormal there. I checked the main fuse again even though I sware I looked at it. Dang, it's blown. 30a inline between the VR/rectifier and battery. Replaced fuse. Now I'm showing 14.6 volts on the battery terminal with the engine running. Since I got this machine a week ago I've replaced the battery, disconnected an LED light bar that would not completely turn off, and charged the battery on a trickle charger. Now I'm not sure if the fuse was blown and I didn't see the break or if it blew since I brought it home with a dead battery. I guess time will tell. One question I do have is when the VR/Rectifiers were relocated to the back, what was the procedure for the old terminal connection at the front? Mine is just dangling with the four fuse connections behind the tool kit. Should it be capped?
