    Those are not Harley numbers, they must be casting numbers from some after market case manufacturer
    Too many numbers and letters even for an earl model

    Look again, Harley never used that number sequence
    Note the lower case j Never on a Harley, The HD engines ALWAYS start with a NUMBER

    1981 and later 17 digit vin# number on frame. Abbreviated vin# on engine. Example ,frame # =1HD1BFK11BY127956. Engine # would be BFKB117956.

    Ya mean like this! On the frame vin you are correct, on the engine number you are incorrect.

    If your VIN is not stamped on the Left Side it is not a Harley Case

    NO you are wrong, The VIN is on the LEFT SIDE crank case and ALWAYS starts with a number
    Nuff said LOOK it up, If The numbers DO not match you still do not have a Harley

    The post I made is from HDT and deemed to be accurate. I checked my scoot and the stamped abbreviated vin on the left side of engine starts with the letter F. Would you like me to post a photo?

    Compare that to your title and ur wrong
    F = 1690 Balanced-EFI
    Not your VIN Look on your title for your VIN,
    Once again Harley NEVER used a lower case j in ANY VIN

    Look on your frame and title, it will start with 1hd followed by the letters, That is the VIN
