I'm trying to locate the frame VIN number on my 96 SP ,the one under the seat has been wore down from what looks like where someone routed a power wire for something and the seat rubbed the wire causing the VIN to wear down.I checked the frame rail behind the left front wheel but appears the factory never stamped it there on that year unlike my 02,is there another location it might be stamped,I checked everywhere I knew to look.Thanks
Hi that's a big help, can you see the number without removing the plastic? Is it near the shifter on the frame? I looked for over a hour after pressure washing it and had no luck,I'm not sure what the rubbed number is under the seat.I bought the sp from a old guy a while back for parts and decided to fix it which I did, I could not locate the number the day I bought it and at the time he just gave me a receipt stating non running atv ect.. Now that it's running I need to get some documents "bill of sale ect" before I spend more money in it.I'm 100% positive it is a 96 due to the stamps on the engine pad, tranny decals and plastic dates.
I just walked out to take a look,my flashlight was a bit dim.I did not see it looking in the area on the frame between the right tire and fender near the bottom area of the tank.There is a frame rail the shifter mounts to,is that the one you are referring? I do not see any grind marks any where so I know it's there.I'll try again in the morning,it may be under the paint,looks like someone has touched it up here and there in the past where the paint was popping
Mine is on the sq tubing with the numbers facing the back of the passenger front tire. I'd say to use a about location it's right at 11 o'clock if your looking at the pass front tire. I can probably take a pic of it later if you need one.
