11 digit vin number on drz?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, went to look at a 2013 drz400sm today, 2011 build date.

Checked the vin number and it's only got 11 digits. Can anyone give me more info. I'm under the impression a vin has 17 digits.

It clearly stated 2/11 VIN xxxxxxxxxxx

I'm going to look at the bike again tomorrow but, would like to get a revs check first before I put a deposit down.

I'm in Australia by the way.

I checked mine, it starts with JS1BB then 12 numbers, which makes 17.

The 2/11 is the build date which makes it a 2011 model.

Was it first registered in 2013?

Something sounds amiss not showing 17 digits.....A revs check will tell all....

Hey Craigo.

Gonna look at the bike again today and get a decent photo of the vin.

Didn't realise till I got home that it should've been 17 digits, I might have got my finger in the way of the other 6
