Hi,
has anyone of you a bird from 2007 year production and can check your VIN number ?
As I know there were around 1000 birds manufactured in 2007 year.
In my registration documents there is 2007 year as manufacture year however in my VIN number there is '6' in tenth position of the number. I am just curious if these last birds have frame numbers with '7' instead (...7Mxxxxxx) ?

My 07 has a "6" for the tenth digit.
I believe production stopped in 2006, but bikes were still being registered in 07 and even some in 2008.

The tenth digit is the production model year of the vehicle, in Canada (and pretty sure the USA) your bike would be a 2006. Usually most are made the last few months of the year before, eg my '99 was made in 1998 but the 10 digit is an X marking it as a 99 model. It has always been my understanding the the UK goes by year of registration.

My '07 also has a 6 for the 10th digit, however I have a manufacture date of April 2007.

The label under the seat still shows CBR1100XX6, which is the same for 2006 year model. I'm sure I've seen some insurance companies that class it as CBR1100XX7.

The date code on the tag in this case 4 07 is I believe the actual build date that the bike came off the line.

Not sure about other countries but I think the date on our plates is when they are given Australian Compliance so the bike may be older but by the time it gets shipped over and the plate put on it gets an 07 date even if it was actually made in 06 :unsure:

My plate from european distribution looks different. It doesn't contain any date.

04/07 seems not to be a production date as production was halted in March 2007.

However i recently have found that under the seat on the left side there is a wiring with a stick and production date on it. I have printed on it '2006-01'. So it looks that my bird is from 2006 as I don't think that this wiring could lay at the store over a year since it has been produced :) Of course it is still not a proof rather a supposition :)
