I have been offered a spare frame allegedly from an XR600 from a breaker who's having a clear out...its cheap and looks ok, no cracks, bends etc..
However, I'm always the cautious type when people seem to be giving stuff away and I have a feeling that the frame(vin) has been altered.
Here it is:JH2PE23U3YK6##### (last 5 digits withheld for security)
The 1st issue is that the manufacturer code looks like JHZ not JH2
The 2nd issue is the model: PE23U? Should this not be PE230?

Any XR600 owners out there please take a peek at your frame numbers at put my mind at rest, before I miss another bargain!

Cheers guys
