Help identify the missing CRF frame number!

As some of you will know from a previous thread, i've just bought an '02 CRF450 and am in the process of registering it with the DVLA.

However some of the characters in the frame number are very difficult to read, and one in particular is impossible to make out. A helpful guy at Honda UK has been trying to match my incomplete frame numer to my engine number but he called yesterday to say he was unsuccessful.

I've decided to ask if any of you CRF owning guys can help me out.
The missing character is halfway thru the frame number, and i'm hoping it's just a model identifier that will be the same as everyone elses.

Can you all check your frame numbers and compare it to mine, the missing character is shown as a - ? -. The xxx's at the end are where the actual frames build number would be, i've chosen to hide mine for security reasons.

JH2PE05?12MXXXXXX

Any ideas guys? Note there are a couple of other characters that may also be wrong, it's quite difficult to make out on my frame (bloody aluminium!).

My email is jonhawkins@tiscali.co.uk if anyone would prefer not to disclose their info on the net.

Thanks, Jon.

edit due to my poor typing skills!

a

'A' here as well

Thanks guys, very helpfull.Can you also confirm if the rest of your frame number (excluding the 6-digit build number at the end) matches what i've posted up? I'm hoping this section of the frame number will be the same on all '02 bikes.Thanks again, Jon.

The first bit of mine up to the 'A' is the same, but the rest is different........but then again, mine is an 04

Mine is the same up to the letter A, but is followed by another letter, not a number like yours

Nice one guys, much obliged

Can anyone confirm my CRF450 year? Frame # Starts JH2PE05A04M 000000 - I'm lead to belive its an 04 but need to make sure as there a few differnt parts - ie fork legs etc.CheersRob.

The missing number/letters are U S ,your bike is a import .A Aussie vin has 15 digits your bike has 17 .So don't put U S on the rego form ,then you have 15 digits.Plus the bike does not show up on the Aussie rego system.It can't be a 2002.02 was the first crf450r .we did no t see the import black model import till 2008.Honda mpe Australia only imported the 450 once.2008 for the 2009 race year.the import was lean ,the jetting was for the USA and the imports popped and broke done coming off the gas.once jetted correct they ran awesome.Hope this helped.
