    Honda Scoopy VIN location?

    Hi

     

    We have found the engine numbers on our Scoopy, but we are having real trouble trying to find the VIN.  I called a Honda dealer and they said "on the right under the running board", but its not there that I can see. 

    The owners manual says VIN / Frame number is under the plastic cover adjacent the fuel tank, however that number is the engine number, which is also engraved into the transmission case.

     

    So we have the engine number written twice on the scooter, but no VIN / Frame number yet located.  I have sent an email to Honda Australia also, and am waiting on reply from them.

     

    All help appreciated :D

    ah, thanks. that's awesome!

      that sticker is missing from our scooter now unfortunately.  i'm going to have to chase honda up now i guess to see what we can organise about a replacement, as we are wanting to sell the scooter.

     check inside the sheild further to the top of where you put the key in . its only a sticker so it doesnt stick out at all. Some scoopy and today models had it in this location

    looks like the stickers have been removed, for whatever reason who would know....  i rang my local honda dealer they reckon they should be able to find the frame number stamped on the frame somewhere (apparently the sticker is a secondary means of ID)  so we'll see tomorrow.

     

    thanks all for your help

    So, what you did finally? 

    I have similar problem. I imported Honda Scoopy from Thailand and go to vehicle examination center. Guys in there told me they can't register vehicle because VIN number is 13 digits long. That VIN number locating under seat.

    Anybody deal with changing/getting new VIN number?

    hi there roalty. we took it to a honda mechanic, it took them ages (like a half hour or more), but they eventually found the numbers stamped into the chassis / engine block somewhere.

    apparently it was in an area they had not seen it stamped before. I can't recall exactly where they found it sorry, it was some time ago.

    the honda guys did the roadworthy for the scooter, so that we could sell it.

    good luck!

    Hi merckx,

    thank you for reply

    Who is Honda guy exactly? I called to Honda Australia and they just say NO, BYE. My scooter from Thailand and have VIN, but is 13 digits only. And it's not enough for guys from Vehicle Examination Center and they don't want register bike.

    Re: Honda Scoopy VIN location?

    Thank you for address, but unfortunately I'm in Perth.

    I called to Department Infrastracture and they sent me new vehicle approval with new VIN number. They just add few digits before old one. But inspections want new number located on scooter and not at the paper. So, I think I need print sticker by myself and put somewhere because nobody know how it should be.
