    VIN Year/Engine Search

    Anyone know how to tell what year and engine a ski is from its VIN? It's an older GTX, almost certainly a 2-stroke.

    Thanks!

    You wouldn't happen to know if Kawasaki is the same way, would you? I also picked up an 1100STX.

    All ski's VIN tags have the year as the last 2 digits.

    I just checked my manual.

    Look at the last four digits.

    First, the letter is the month of production
    The next number is the year of production
    The last two are the model year
