Where is the VIN located on R1100S?

Gents,

I sold my R1100S and now the new owner is saying the VIN plate fell off. I dont recall there being a VIN plate, but the VIN was etched into the frame somewhere.

Could someone please share the location so I can solve this issue.

Thanks,

Justin

On the right hand side , about 6 inches to the rear of the transmission fill plug, the VIN
appears twice.

Thanks,

The buyer said they located it at the Cali Hwy Patrol. They are running it through their system. Kinda crazy, Ive never heard of R1100s being a bike that gets stolen much or has a high resale if parted.

Did your buyer have a hard time registering the bike ,or was your buyers bike stolen, or was your buyers bike stopped for speeding ?

I seem to remember that if you bring a bike (or car) into CA and register it, the DMV inspects it for things like lights, emissions stuff and VIN. They refer you to the CHP for the VIN check if they don't readily find it. CHP verifies VIN is clean.
