    visual differences in 1200 motor and 1300 motor?

    I purchase my ski from a guy that told me he had the motor changed out and the question I have is every 1200 motor I have seen is black in color and mine is silver..

    I was wondering if anyone here can tell me how I can tell if it is a 1300 or 1200 motor with out having to get a look at the tag on the bottom case

    My '01 XLT1200 motor is silver while my '01 GP1200R motor is black. Color won't help.
    Can't you look at the engine serial number on the head?
    I believe a 1200 would start with 67x while a 1300 would begin with 60T.
    If I'm wrong the guys will correct me.

    I believe the replacement motors from yamaha come silver.

    Can't you just peek under the stinger and see if there are carbs or throttle bodies?
