Looking for the VIN

I have a 03 400ex, and i have been trying to find the VIn # on it. I have found the Frame/Engine and Carb but not the Vin.
When i put the frame # in it comes back as invalid.
Can someone please point me in the right direction.

TIA

Most 4-wheeler problems are caused by a loose nut connecting the handlebars and the seat!!

You only need two tools in life -- WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the WD-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.

It should be in one of those locations. The true VIN will be stamped into the frame.

You are distinguishing between the zeros and the letter "O" aren't you? Sometimes it's hard to tell the difference. Some other numbers can be confusing too. For example, L and l.
