Frame Number

Recommended Posts

I'm looking at a 99YZ250 and can find the engine number and a number on the carb, but can't see the frame number. I thought it was on the right hand side of the frame between the triple clamps. The frame has been painted at some stage, so is it possible that the plate with the frame number was taken off? I thought the frame number was also stamped onto the frame, it is on my XR.

Where I am there are no papers to prove ownership for motocross bikes, so it's very hard to check. I can't even tell if it's really a 99 or not?

the frame number is on the right side of the frame near the triple clamps. if the frame has been powdercoated then the VIN maybe covered.

the engine number and vin number on the frame are never the same.

get a bill of sale as a back up precaution and be sure the bill of sale includes the seller's name, address, and phone number.

Thanks. I've got a reciept saying what I paid for it and who I bought it from, which is good. I might do a bit more investigation to see if I can uncover the VIN number.
