    A dealer should be able to look it up for you.

    Well.. here's a start:

    1982-1985: had an ugly hose coming off the front of the ski for an exhaust outlet- aka the 'snorkel'. The motor was black.

    1986-1989: the exhaust outlet was on the side of the ski below the rubrail on the starboard side. The motor was still black.

    1990: the exhaust was now at the rear of the ski. The motor was still black.

    1991-1995: The exhaust was at the back of the ski and the motor was now silver.

    That should allow you to narrow it down within 2/3 years. If you can show me a pic of what the ski looks like I can probably tell you by the color and graphics.
