Kx60 -kx65
« on: June 05, 2016, 08:22:37 AM »
Hi all,
I have just brought a 60 and a 65 of a guy who wasn't sure of the years what's the best way of finding out for sure? Need to get some parts ordered.

Any help would be much appreciated
Thanks

Hi Cjames33, welcome to the site!  Assuming you are in the US, you can tell your year by checking the 10th digit of your VIN.  Here is a breakdown of what that digit means:

Perhaps I have a dirt bike addiction?

04 KX 250 - Lunchbox's Bike
05 KX 125/144

I love the UK, it's one of my favorite places to visit.  So much history and culture.  I found this VIN decoder (https://vindecoder.eu/) that is recommended by Interpol.  The newer bike came up as this:

Manufacturer:
Kawasaki Heavy Industries Ltd
Manufacturer Address:
1-1 Kawasaki-Cho
673 Akashi-City
Japan
Product Type:
Motorcycle
Make:
Kawasaki
Check Digit
A
Model Year:
2010
Plant Country:
Japan
Sequential Number:
034309

Unfortunately the older bike would not work on this decoder.  I'll keep digging to see what I can come up with.  In the meantime, can you post some pics of the bikes?  Here's a guide that shows how to post using Photobucket:
