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.
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 email@example.com if anyone would prefer not to disclose their info on the net.
edit due to my poor typing skills!
