Shouldn't the VIN# match the engine SN in some regard?

Recommended Posts

Usually some of the numbers are matching .... mine doesn't match anything.  

 

 

 

Another weird thing, this bike is an 07 and the carburetor couldn't be more perfect.... I mean it starts first kick every time and there are no flat spots that I notice.  It makes crazy power on top too, so I wonder if the engine was replaced at some point including a newer version of the carb? 

 

I wonder if you can tell at a glance the old 07 carb from the new and improved carb?

 

I know, I should call Honda and see what's in their data base concerning this bike .... I just haven't done it yet. :banana:
