Frame number(VIN) is stamped on the yoke behind the headlight. You have to turn the handle bar fully in order to see it on the frame. The engine number is stamped on top of the lower half of the engine behind the cylinders (basically on top of the gearbox)
The frame number is the Vehicle Identification Number. If the engine is the original engine, then the engine is the same year as decoded from the frame number. If it is not the original engine, you are hosed as to determining the year of the engine. The engine numbers will not identify what year the engine is. The only identifier is the frame number. Engine numbers are useless since they only denote the engine size, assembly plant, and sequence of that engine in a production run. You can go to the site below and enter the frame number into the VIN decoder to get the year and other information. Note; back in 1985 the manufacturers adopted 17 digit VIN. If you have less than 17 digits you are out of luck. Please rate my answer. Thanks. http://www.motoverse.com/tools/vin/kawasaki.asp
To Identify the year model look for the compliance plate.
It is usually found on the steering stem(on the frame between the forks).Turn the steering to one side to get a good look & use a torch.
Otherwise go to "buykawasaki.com"
This web site lets you input the engine number &will tell you what year it is.
OR- ring your local Kawasaki dealer & Quote the number. From this they should easily be able to Identify your model for you.
Hope this helps.

The engine number will tell you what country the engine was made , what series the engine is and the production number. The frame number VIN is what will tell you the needed info. Call a dealer and give them the frame number and they should be able to tell you what you have.
If the dent is only a dent, yes you can fix it with body putty and paint. If the "dent" is really a bend that has put the frame out of alignment then, no you can't fix it > not properly anyway. It may be possible for a frame shop to straighten but you can probably get a good used frame for the same money.
Google " motorcycle salvage kawasaki ". You can probably find a frame there.
