Actually what is stamped on your engine case is the engine number, Harley used a mix of numbers from the VIN to make up the engine number so it should always match by the last six of the VIN… but other manufactures don't always do this. Victory comes up with an engine number that is not based off of your VIN but the number is listed on the MSO (manufacturer statement of origin) and should be listed on the original title, so if the number that is stamped on your engine case doesn’t match up with the VIN, it might not always be a stolen engine, again just check with your owners manual.

I am hoping to get my bike license soon, at 56. I got the bug late. I have been reading biking stuff all over, but most of the good info has been from this site and the short riders Web sites. You guessed right, my inseam is 27 inches. My interest is in dual purpose bikes, and my choices are extremely limited and I have been looking for info on lowering a UJM to fit me.

I am very impressed by the quality and amount of good info. I have several bookmarks on motorbike sites, but this one is my favorite. Keep up the good work, and ride on, I hope to be doing so myself sometime very soon.

I think this is excellent advice and so very useful. I will pass this on to my brother. In spite of it being a "women's" site, there is nothing gender about the need to know all the numbers and letters of a V.I.N. and what they stand for and ways to protect one's self.

I found you by doing a search for my car V.I.N., and have yet to find that. I enjoyed your article and think you did a great job. I used to ride with my best friend years ago and we had a blast. Many good memories. Keep up the good work!

I'm glad you found something useful on our site to share with your brother. We're not really a women's site, we are a site about women and motorcycling, so anyone interested in learning more about the culture of women is invited to the site. We speak to all riders regardless of gender.
