Build Date?

Did a search on how to find the build date. First mentioned checking frame under seat, didn't seem to find anything. Maybe I'm just not looking in the right spot. Next was the ZIN decoder website. My VIN of ZN74282 brings up an f650 for some reason... Any ideas?

Thanks in advance

EDIT :Sorry posted in wrong forum, but maybe someon knows. Bike is an 07 K1200GT

This may not be the most accurate, but since I'm only interested in build date for parts I plug in my VIN on www.realoem.com and it comes back with the year and month.

If you look carefully on most of the parts, including inside the ABS plastics you can often figure out from the molding and casting codes what year it was made. Within a few months the parts should tie up. It's a good way to check if the bike has been dropped and plastics or parts replaced.

I know this because I needed some boneyard bits and the later bike year tallyd with the molding codes.
