I was wondering about this too. The serial number is easy to locate on the frame, but every other bike I've owned always had the label with the VIN and the build date; usually located on or near the steering head. It must be somewhere.

I looked there, but couldn't find it. Perhaps it's concealed by the alarm module or something.

It is probably on your title and registration slip. At least in NY, it is on both documents, readily available in your wallet or on the bike in case you need it for the cops!

It is on the frame, right hand side, by the clutch cover.

I attached a little info on the vin structure too.
