Serial numbers that shows model year

Hi all,

I will have a new Grizzly coming in October. Now forgive me for asking, but is there a number (serial No. somewhere?) that confirms which model year it is?

I ask as I don't know my new local dealer and I want to make sure I get a 2011, and not a 2009 that he's transferred from another dealer, or 'dusted off' out the back.

Just so you don't think Im being over-picky...I noticed a tread talking about retail price. Well in Holland they have a 'luxury tax' on cars/motor bikes, so I'll be paying 14,000 Euro...or (get this) $17,844 for a green Grizzly 700 EPS +FI ....DOH!

So as you can imagine, I want to make sure its right!

Thanks in advance, Jan (I did get a pair of lights thrown in though)

Yes, there is a VIN stamped on the frame somewhere. Usually just below and forward of the engine. I don't remember which side. Digits 10 is the year of the atv.

On the 700's the vin is on the left side when sitting on it, ans slightly under the inner fender flap on the bottom frame rail.

Actually, the 10th digit (number or letter) of the VIN number is the year of the ATV. You can use the chart below to determine the year. A 2011 model would be the letter "B".

Helmut, I see where you got that online, looks like my DMV bum doped me when I was registering it. I thought I had an 04 and they showed me the 02 in the VIN was the year. Thanks for the correction. I corrected my earlier post so I would not bum dope anyone else.
