the parts in your vin that stand for year and month are numbers 11 & 12
i.e. mine is 6FPAAA JG WA RU 25538
the R is 1994 and the U is July

no. Just that it's got the same rocker ratio as an au, so if you want to put a cam in it needs to be an au cam. I know crow has billets at the moment for just over $400 if that's what he's thinking

if your still seriously in doubt (as the XR's had different valves and ports etc) take the rocker cover off

if it has conical springs, its an AU head
