    VIN code Honda Crf250r

    by VankoZvera » Sat May 27, 2017 2:00 am

    Hello guys. I bought a crf250r two weeks ago. The seller told me that the bike is 08 year. Yesterday i recieved a front brake lever but it doesn't fit. I made a little research and the lever i got was for 07+ crfs but that one i had and broke was for crf 2004 or 2005. I have a certificate from Italy and thats the "VIN code"i got. ZENF250NEC0500283. I know that these crfs start with JH.... but that not.. Please help me identify which year is my bike. :?: :(

    VIN code is 17 characters of which the tenth is the year.

    The Z at the start mean Italian manufacturer. So that is good.
    ZEN must be a newer manufacturer but My list is 2003 so maybe out of date.

    VIN code is 17 characters of which the tenth is the year.
    By that it is "C" which equates to 1982!
    Seems strange, are you sure it is C?

    Is what is stamped on the steering stem tube the same as the paper

    I am missing 2 numbers on my 2006 250R that the cables wore off of the frame. its the 4th and the 5th number._ _103. I see the 4-8th numbers identify the model or engine type of the motorcycle. So any idea what it is for a 250R?

    As Ray mentioned , the 10th digit is the year , so whatever the 10th number or letter is , is the year of manufacture , for the U.S. (and i would think for everywhere else) it goes as follows

    Jim, he needs to know what coding is to show it is a crf250r digits 4 thru to 8. I think 4 and 5 are normally alpha like ME for 2004/05 250R bikes.

    Over here , Ray , 2001-2009 are numbers , coinciding with the year , the 10th digit on my 06 450X is 6 and my 02 450R is 2 , earlier and later years are letters .....

    Update/Edit: This should be the same weather its 250 or 450 , not sure what the Euro bikes do though , as the ZEN thing is new to me , and not sure what numbers on the Euro bikes signify model , i am assuming by what he explained , someone prior changed the perch to a generic or different year possibly , since realistically any year perch would work as long as the corresponding lever was used ....

    Hi everyone,

    I have a honda CRF250r. When I bought it the seller said that it is a 2010 and all the documents were saying the same. But it has a normal Carburetor (Not EFI). and dual exhaust. Which I believe came on the 2009 model. I think this is an 2009 model. Please help me verify it. Thanks.

    Here is the chassis number of the bike : ME10 - 1410105

    Which year is this bike made in?
