    Hi all,

    Does anyone know how to tell the year of a tw from engine or frame numbers. My bike is an import and i have a feeling frame doesnt match the engine, the paperwork cant be belived or the rego as it was transfered from another import (strange laws here in thailand!). I have the new type carb with plastic bit on the top so i think it's post 2001. Anyone got any idea how to tell exact year of bike for ordering parts?

    Does it even matter wich year when it comes to ordering parts? Are the only differences that have been made disk brake on the front and new carb since the tw's release??

    Cheers

    You can look up a free vin decoder online. What is the color combo of your bike?
    If you can't find it, grind it

    There are other subtle differences. Gas caps 2002 and earlier are large; later than 2002 they are smaller. The earlier bikes had slightly different electrical systems so year is important there. There is a sticker / label on the front tube that has the vin number and actually lists a year. The year stated is the model number, the vin number has a coded two digits that correspond to the actual manufacture date which may differ by one year from the model number. You can interpret all the digits of the vin number if you search for the info on the web. Good luck. Tom

    What is the 10th digit on the VIN?



    That will tell you what year it is. Just look it up on the 'net.

    Thanks

    I will do a search when i find my vin, if the frame matches engine i belive it was gold origionaly, but not much of origional bike left now haha. Thanks for response. Vin number is the way to go i guess.
