"Beginning in 1981, all vehicle manufacturers had to conform to the new 17 digit VIN format and the year would no longer appear on the bike tag."
It should only have 17 characters if it was a U.S. model. Otherwise, NON-U.S. models might not use the 17 character VIN number system.
There may be a difference in the VIN nd Engine number, so check the steering head area for a frame number, that should be the VIN. I'm pretty sure they're asking for the VIN..
