If you are trying to find the CC size of the bike it will say on base of the cylinders somewhere. There is also a number on the motor and it should match the frame.

Bikes do not have a VIN or any centralized serial number database. Each manufacturer maintains their own serial numbers. It is extremely difficult to ID a frame solely by serial number.

Just by looking at the vin number won't tell you the year of your bike. You need to write the vin number down and get on the phone with a dealer that operates your type of motorcycle manufacture. Tell them the vin number and then they can tell you what year it is.

EXCEPT If it isn't older than a 1983 you can use this method on all 17 digit vin numbers cars, bikes, atv's etc. code follows,count to the tenth digit,D IS 1983 E 84. F 85. G 86.H 87.J 88.K 89.L 90.M 91. N 92.P 93.R 94. S 95.T 96.V 97. W 98.X 99.Y 2000. 1 01. 2 02.3 03. 4 04. 5 05. 6 06.7 07. You sholdn't have any problem understanding this.

I found this serial number tag on my harley davidson but I dont think that it makes my bike's vin. tag says: 7910R303030183 vin: 1HD1BHY101Y025637

The second part of the number past the "vin:" is probably the VIN of your bike, maybe not but it looks like a VIN number. Your VIN should be stamped into the neck of the frame. What the first number is, I have no idea.

Vin location

It should be located on the right hand side of the down tube. Turn the handle bars to the left and look on the right side of the down tube. If it is not there or has been filed off most likely it is hot.
