Count the digits until you reach the 10th one. This is the year designator. This number will be either 1 through 9 or A through Y (excluding I, O, Q and U)
Determine the year of the motorcycle. VIN years started in 1971 with the number "1", then went to "2" in 1972, "3" in 1973, and so on. In 1980, the digit switched to "A" and then went through the alphabet until it got back to "1" in 2001 and then "A" in 2010. Therefore, if the 10th digit is "R," you can determine your bike was made in 1994.
