So I was cruising around looking for oem parts, because there's nothing better to do on Friday night and came to see that there are three different models. YZFR3(FB,FL and FR).

The question is: where do I look to see which one I have? Or are they all the same? I'd assume one is Asian, European and North American, but, I've been known to be wrong.

According to my insurance agent's computer, U.S. models are the YZFR3L. That's the only designation that he had for R3's and that's what it says on my proof of insurance card.

Actually, I was just going though my stuff and found they listed it as a yzfr3(fr) on my set-up and delivery check list. Interesting. Not sure what to believe. Guess a call to Yamaha them selves is in order

I'm pretty sure that has to do with color of the bike, black, blue, or red and if it's a California emissions equipped model.

FL = Blue
FR = Red
FB = Black

US versions are model 2MS1
Canadian versions are model 2MS2

There is no California/49 state models. All US models are California compliant.

There is no California/49state models. The US has one 50 state model.

US models should be tagged model 2MS1 under the passenger seat
Canadian models are 2MS2

Does the "F" in FL, FB, FR mean the model year? Another sight lists Yamaha's model designations, and the letter "F" is for 2015.
