Ive been searching around the forums for a method of dissecting or "reading" your VIN number. After reading a couple posts about being able to tell what production number your bike is as well as the actual production year and stuff like that, i was curious if anyone has seen a breakdown of all the numbers in a VIN?
does anyone know what the different numbers mean? or a place i can look if it already exists on this forum?
Information overload for me.
I knew I should've paid more attention in class.
Maybe some kind hearted fellow can interpret my numbers for me.
It also may be due to my fever, as I'm sick right now. Ha. The doc needs a doc !
JH2 = Made in Japan
SC453 (or SC45x) = RC51/RVT1000R/VRT1000 SP2
7 = VIN check digit
2 = 2002, year of manufacture (used to be alpha characters prior to 2000)
M = Hamamatsu plant in Japan where built
2 = 2002, Model year
01102 = Serial Number 1102
I am now a proud owner of a SP1. i have been through many forums but to no avail.
i have been onto all the sites that i could find only to find out that the vin number is un-valid??? please if someone could assist.
the vin number is: JH2SC45A1YM005227. Engine number: SC45E2007448.
Thanks in advance.
