I bought an old beat up non running 2001 Yamaha 250 atv 2x4 and am getting conflicting information whether it is a bear tracker or big bear. I've got it cleaned up and running great and am now in the process of getting a title so I can register it. The bill of sale says 2001 Yamaha Big Bear 250, but I think it is a Bear Tracker. The officer who did the vin check only said it wasn't stolen and didn't have any other info. When I search vin decoder's online I keep getting both models coming up depending on what site I use. The only thing they agree on is the 2001 year. Am I correct that the Big Bear's first year was 2008, which would make mine a Bear Tracker? The DMV has been no help and told me I have to have all the correct info when I send in the paperwork for title or it will be rejected.
