Bought a 525sx ran vin came up as 450sx?

Recommended Posts

The vin check dosent always work.

Look at the cylinder below the intake does it have a 95/7R cast in?

ive had this issue also for some reason on ktm... Dealer helped me out, also you can decode the engine number and that will at least tell you in theory what the motor started as, albeit with the rfs you see several frame/motor swaps

cheers

its a 450, hence the 89

89mm piston bore is 450's

95 on cylinder is for 520/525's

not necissilary..

post a pic of the shifter side of the engin. What is cast into the cylinder (not the head)?

He stated 89-7r already! the 89-7r is a cylinder stamping!

it stands for 89mm bore

450 is 89mm

525/520 is 95mm and have 95-7r (or 95-6r)

SO the engine is 450 bore forsure, and vin comes up as 450sx............ chances are it is a 450SX

89/7r is the head number. Even the 525's have 89 marked heads.

89/6r or 95/7r is the cylinder number (but most people dont notice it behind the oil line)

The 450sx has a 95mm bore so a 89mm 450sx is impossible.

And like I previously posted even if the cylinder is marked 89 it dosent mean it's stock.. the TR 99mm cylinders are usually done with 89mm castings.
