11 digit vin number on drz?

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?

Do you mind if I pm you with the photo I took when I viewed it?

Don't wanna go posting vin on internet

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
