DR-z400 k

does anyone know much about the drz 400-sk? how do i tell the year of the bike?

um its got a kickstart

does anyone know much about the drz 400-sk? how do i tell the year of the bike?

vin number. theres a code break down here somewhere

well its a elec start. no vin number just the number off production line. these are japan bikes made for the japan market ( not ment fr export ) i have 7 of them.

Isn't the K a year... and isn't K = 2004?

If I recall, the year follows the K. e.g. DRZ400SK4 is a 2004. maybe the DRZ400SK is a 2000?

Oh yeah, thats more right than I was.

How about a picture of all of them ???

The easiest way to tell the year on any vehicle, motorcycle or otherwise; is to look at the 10th digit of the vin #.

1995 S

1996 T

2010 ?

The standard 17 digit vin# was not the standard before 1981. The vins were different on different mfg. cars and bikes. The letters I, O, Q, and U as well as the # 0 are not used because they could be easily altered or confused for one another. I could not tell you why the A is not used though. After 2009, I am not sure what is going to be done as we are all out of letters and numbers. 18 digit vin maybe?

look at the website adventure-moto and go to the rental page and see a pic of one. For some reason I cant post attachments. I can tell you that the head light is smaller than the US bike and their are some other small differences. the vin is only 9 digits long. i am sure i have a 2005 and a 2006 but the rest are 2001 -2004...
