How to Check a Dirt Bike's VIN

Every registered vehicle contains a VIN, which stands for Vehicle Identification Number. It is similar to a person's social security number. The VIN is a code used to identify a vehicle and the vehicle's history. A VIN contains seventeen characters consisting of letters and numerals and can be traced by inputting the VIN into a database. The database shows any accidents, repairs and ownership changes. Locate the VIN on your dirt bike and enter the number on a vehicle identification website that also caters to motorcycles.

Locate the VIN on your dirt bike. The VIN number plate can be found above the front forks of your dirt bike on the front steering frame.

Record the number by using a pen to write the number down on a piece of paper.

Find a website on the Internet that searches for motorcycle VINs using a computer. Your local DMV website often has a motorcycle VIN search option --- or, you can also search for a dirt bike's VIN number on the Analogx website to retrieve your dirt bike's history and records.
