If you are in the USA, motorcycles are the year they are first registered ... which is likely a year and sometimes more than the year they are actually built.

If you have a CB 400/4 you have a wonderful motorcycle, good power and smooth beyond most description. Light and strong. ... but lots of nooks and crannies to clean :-( ...

Enjoy riding your 400/4

    And a beautiful land it 'tis.



    If your bike was imported from USA, my comments apply. If it were imported from some other country ... well, as you can imagine, it is hard to know all the registration and import-export laws of all the lands.



    I would suggest you examine the motorcycle for evidence of compliance with the laws of some country on the 'date of manufacture'. Here in the USA, for many years now, vehicles are marked with USA DOT (Department Of Transportation) tags and labels indicating they comply with the laws in effect on the date of manufacture, and that date is suppose to be imprinted or stamped. California requires a special tag having stricter requirements. My current CB-750 is a 2008 (purchased 11/08) but was built in summer of 2007 in Japan.



    If you cannot find a tag and you cannot check backward on your present registration or ask the previous owner(s), maybe a e-mail to the Honda folks in California would produce an answer for you. I suspect some part of the motorcycle's engine number or frame number would be a clue. If the owners manual still exists, there may be a clue there. Do you have or can you get it? You might be able get build information from your Honda Dealer who should have a complete listing of source serial numbers or at least have access to the list.



    There is a Honda Rider's club that I am familiar with that serv's riders in the USA. Find the USA version at: http://hrca.honda.com/ The Irish version came us as: http://www.irishbikerforum.com/forums/in... --- also: http://www.club-honda.eu/country_detail....



    I went on Google and searched "how old is my honda", Google returned 10,400,000 sites. When I searched "how old is my honda motorcycle", Google returned 1,650,000 sites. When I searched "how old is my honda CB 400/4 motorcycle", I got 6,010 possible links. Here is one that advertises for 74-79 CB-400 parts and it is very near you. http://www.wemoto.com/bikes/Honda/CB_400... And here is one that identifies the 400 as the "Cafe Racer" of certain years in the '70's: http://motorbike-search-engine.co.uk/cla...



    I lived in Honolulu in the early to mid 70's. I started riding at that time with a CB-100. Soon I had a CB-360/G model. The CB-350/4 was a dream of mine but they couldn't be found in the islands. The 400 (introduced later) was a 350 with a slightly larger engine just as my 360 was really a 350 with a slightly larger engine AND the latest in brake technology, sporting a front disk break! My 360 came with a new design called a "floating cam". Bad design, it floated right up through the head. Honda replaced all "floating cams". I rode my 360 daily rain or shine summer and winter. I rode it across the USA in summer of 76, California to New Jersey. I stopped riding in '80 due to employment situation.



    As far as the oil leak you speak of ... this motorcycle is at least 30 years old. There will be some troubles with it due to wear. I can assure you, if the bike has had reasonable care, it is worth your effort to put it into top operating condition again. The 350/4 was really a dream motorcycle ... not to big, comfortable to ride, quiet. The CB-400 must be the same.



    I still maintain contact with the man that ran the Honda Dealership in Hawaii ... I will ask him what he remembers or may know. He might have the perfect lead. If I get info, I will post it here.



    I have given you a few leads to continue your search and research. Good luck with your motorcycle.



    Thanks for your interest in FixYa.com

It's not uncommon that showroom bikes that have never been sold would end up in some fleet purchase a few years later so the model older than the year of their first purchase.

It's a 1977 model. The engine serial is of this type: CB400E-21xxxxxx .
No special problems, the oil leak is normal on a bike that old, the heads might be slightly deformed. Just inspect the wiring, it should be close to complete failure and shorts are common.

Year of manufacture of Johnson 40Hp outboard Model No AJ40BALE1A Serial No. G02651879


Ed,
Near as I can tell, it's a 1979. As of 1980, Johnson/Evinrude used two LETTERS at the end of the model number to designate the year. (See attached) Your model number ends in a number and letter (1A) which leads me to believe it's earlier than 1980. Prior to 1980, the last two numbers of the serial number were the year. That's how I surmised yours is a 1979, by the last two of the serial. G02651879

Hope this helps.

Does frame no. tell me year and model of my er-6n kawasaki ?


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.

What is the model and cc for this model ID code Yamaha 41X 7274452


What you have is an engine number (possibly), not the 17 digit VIN number.

Look on either side of the frame neck, or on the downtubes running in front of the engine.
It'll either be stamped, a sticker, or a metal tag held on with pop rivets.

ID NUMBER


there should be an engine number and frame number on your bike which will identify your bike. the engine no is usualy stamped on the bottom engine casing (usualy left hand side). the frame no. should be on the frame just behind the forks. the numbers should both be present and should be the same, not sure how to use this number but take this to your local bike mechanic and he should be able to help you. i had to do this when my mate bought a ty175, wich turned out to be a 1980 dt175!!

I am looking to check and see if by the stamp on my kawasaki motorcycle engine you can tell me what year and model the engine is


The engine number is worthless. The frame number is the key. If your bike is 1980 or so, pray that it has 17 alpha numeric digits in the number. Les than 17 and finding the information requested is pretty hard. If it does have 17 digits, go to this website http://www.motoverse.com/tools/vin/kawasaki.asp tombones49_296.gif

Ony title the the title reads year 1981 yamaha modle/body MS Iwhen I went to register it the register said somthing about xj 650 hs what does the xj and hs mean and can u tell me what my bike is the...


The VIN number should be 17 characters and found on the frame....should start with JYA

Now count off from the left to the 10th character,,,,,,,
if its an A its a 1980 model, B is an 1981, C is a 1983.

the 4H7 in the VIN means its an XJ650H model made in 1980 & 1981, Look up XJ650 on the net for more info on your bike.

Contact an Authorized Yamaha Dealer for that sort of information. They will require the frame number for an accurate date of manufacture.
Is it not registered then?

I just want to know what model my 1980 Shovelhead was brand new. The serial number starts with 7G. It has a blacked out motor like the low rider and sturgis. Someone put after market wide glide trees on it...


It' sounds like you've got an FXEF, the first Fat Bob bikes. To know for sure, you need to go by the frame number. Got to any site that list the "harley alphabet" to decode your frame VIN number. I'm pretty sure the "7G" designation on the engine indicates the 80" engine that was standard from 1980 on. The 80" engine was available prior to 1980 through special order only. The serial number (last five digits or so) should match the last five digits on your frame.

Good Luck

Get the VIN from the frame and call a Suzuki dealer with the number. They should be able to tell you exactly what you have. The regulator and the rectifier should not get red hot; replace. You can get many parts at Babbitt's. Go to the site below where you can see a parts diagram for your specific bike. You will select the actual brand, year, model, etc., once you go to the site. Part numbers and prices are also shown. You can order parts from this site. In the event no price is shown on a particular part, the part is not in stock. www.babbittsonline.com/pages/parts/viewbybrandand/parts.aspx

Can I get a “very helpful” rating on this answer? And it doesn’t cost anything extra!
