One place is on the front left bottom of the frame, about where your inner fender meets the bottom frame rail. I think there may be one under the seat.

There is also one on the motor, but I doubt it'd be easy to see.

Beyond that, posts pics. There are subtle differences between each model, some eagle eyes on here might be able to tell you at a glance...

VIN should be found on the frame in the left front wheel well area. On the 700's it's kinda hidden by plastics.

Check your frame for an aluminum tag. The older yammi's have the vins on tags.

I bought an 09 700 and it wasn't on a tag at all. It almost looked like it is etched on the frame and then painted. i.e. - it is VERY difficult to see unless you know what you are looking for. If I had to find it again, I would take a rag and wipe the lower frame inside of the left/front wheel well. On mine, it was almost far enough back you couldn't see it. I had to look very closely 3 times before I saw it. You might be able to feel for it first and then look.

Don't know where it's it at on prior versions. I've also heard it is on the motor somewhere, but I have never looked for it. I don't know why they couldn't stamp the frame under the seat where a non-gymnast could see it.

Found this website for VIN look-up.
ATV VIN decoder - Check your ATV to see what it is, if it is stolen, or salvaged

They say it's a 2000 model.

old thread but I landed here on a goolge search and wanted to share my experience with anyone else that's still looking for an answer to this.

*This is for a Grizzly 600 4x4 (this one is a 2001 but this should work for 1998 to 2001).

For whatever reason, I could NOT find the VIN on my frame. There is also a VIN on the engine. I didn't notice it until I had the back propped straight up on it's rear grab bar. The VIN is on the right-hand side of the engine (if you were sitting on the bike, it's on your right side). It's on the side of the bottom part of the block in a portruding rectangle piece that is part of the actual casting of the block. If you look at the engine from the side (right near where the front foot peg mounts to the frame), you'll see it. It's just under the round part of the clutch cover. Mine looked like it was blank but I hit it with a wire brush and could easily make out the numbers.

Hiljak,

Actually this one is a 2000. Peter had it correct. The tenth digit in the VIN reflects the year of the machine.

1971 through 1979 is reflected as 1 through 9
1980 through 2000 is reflected as A through Y
2001 through 2009 is reflected as 1 through 9, and
2010 restarted as A, so 2011 should be B

I agree with UpstateNYGrizz, the 10th digit of the VIN is the code for the model year. Also, the number on the engine isn't the VIN number, it's the engine number. The engine number is shorter (12 digits, I think) and contains the engine code and the engine production number. The VIN is located on the left side, bottom frame rail, between the engine and the a-arm and contains 17 digits and is stamped directly into the frame rail.
