Lost my VIN number.... How do I find it?
Posted June 02, 2003 - 08:20 AM
I started to sand the paint off of it today and after a couple misses I decided to see if someone with a 400 could post a pic of exactly where its located so I dont sand my whole steering head down to find it.
I still have the title to the bike and I could get it from there but I need it to be visible for a completely different reason.

Yamaha actually doesn't punch them at least on the YZ/Wrs.
It's like a raised etching on right side probably at two or three o'clock if your sitting normally on bike.
I actually just lightly filed off one digit as a test the other day.

Here is a pic I took at lunch, the VIN numbers are directly underneath the pencil that I have placed up there.
As you are sitting on the bike, the VIN numbers are probably at 2 o'clock, with the leading edge of your head-tube being 12 o'clock.
(problem posting pictures, will e-mail them direct Darin.)

To solve title problems I bought an old 78 Yam and am using that title for registration.
i prefer to just take my bike to the police impound and leave it there forever!saves time!

Now Fastest1 has got me thinking on wether or not I should even mess with trying to sand the paint off. Then I will just end up with 2 bare places on my frame head.

I tried to keep the dremel very light on it though so as not to sand the number off the bike.
Thanks for the help guys!
