Hi from Perth, Australia.

So I have scoured this thread to figure out my VIN number details but still confused.

I bought my bike yesterday and it was initially advertised online as a 1988 LS650. When I received the registration papers it was listed as a 1987. The VIN number only has 11 digits and not 17. And finally, on the way home, I noticed it has 5 gears and not 4 as stipulated in specs (for 1988) that I checked online before purchasing the bike.

I have attached an image of the VIN number. I hope one of you awesome gurus is able to help.

Thanks
Lino

my VIN is NP41A - XXXXXX  which is 6 numbers, so how do I read this as I am looking for a spare and the guy from the shop wants my VIN and cant find my 11 digit one and he wants 17 digits off me but I'm six short - oh woe is me !

As far as I know the EU VIN is what you've got.
You're gonna have to convince him to go by the year.

He has now informed me that he has found my bike just using the 11 digits - hurrah!  Smiley something to do with the suzuki site not playing the game earlier

Hi There

Just bought a Suzuki Savage LS650. It is registered in Western Australia as a 1987 model but was advertised as a 1988. It was imported from Japan by a local Suzuki dealer. I can’t seem to match my engine number or vin number to anything on here or the Suzuki Savage website. Can anyone help?

Engine No. P401 – 112537
Vin No. NP41A – 102450

Thanks



1986.....P401-104xxx
1987.....P401-113xxx

It's an '87.

Hi there.

Im just purchased a LS650 from a seeler who didnt know exactly when the bike is from. Maybe 92-93.
I have done many searches but in vain. It seems the US and EU nomenclature is very different.
The VIN is different and the engine no too.

VIN: NP41B-113760
En no: P402-113761

The tach says 19,000 km  Roll Eyes

Any suggestions?
Any visible changes from year to year?

Thanks,

This is normal... for us and this bike anyway.

Pretty sure the P402 means it's a 400cc... not a 650cc

Most of our engine data is US and 650cc based, we're not going to be much help to you.

Thx verslagen.
Its no doubt a 650 cc. The engine and the official registration documents agree Smiley
Theres no way of telling the production year by manufactor modification details on frame or engine?

Were the VINs sequential all the way through the end of the run?
