Where's the VIN number???

Postby sleek00ss » Sun Dec 10, 2006 3:41 pm

Anyone know where the VIN number is on my 2002 Honda 400EX? I've looked all over multiple times and so has 3 other people. We can't find it. Any help would be appreciated.

If I remember correctly it is on the cross member on the frame near your front bumper

There are 2 stickers on the front behind the bumper but neither have the VIN on them. one is the information lable and the other is the 2002 400ex.

Look on the bracket where your front bumper bolts on. The VIN should be machine stamped on the top side of the bracket.
Keep the rubber side down.

If it's not there, then you may have an aftermarket subframe/frame. If that's the case, your only other bet would be somewhere on the motor or under the seat around the airbox. Other than that, you can check for state registration or maybe a nearby Honda dealer can run it down.

it should be on the front crossbar, sometimes the numbers are filled with paint and nearly impossible to see. Ive had to use a mirror on some to see the numbers. they are dots. and they are facing the sky.

aftermarket frame MAY have numbers down near the shifter, but no guarantees.

What everyone else is saying should be correct. If you have the manual, look it up. It will tell you in the manual.

If you can't read it try putting a piece of paper over it and running a pencil back and forth over it and you will create a tracing
