    Missing Digits - Help

    I have a 2000 Blaster that has the VIN Partially worn off. I did some research and found Blaster Vin's are 17 Digits long. The engine VIN is only a partial Frame VIN. My issue is that in order to register it for public use, I need a 17 Digit VIN. Any clues as to how to fill in the blanks. The homemade nerfs the previous owner had installed was the obvious culprit on my machine. (bare metal no grinder or scratch marks) HELP!!!!!! Do I need to buy a LEGIT frame with a readable VIN and transfer all my machine over (PLEASE GOD NO) just to register my machine? H...E...L...P.....

    you can use my vin number to register if you want. you'd just have to restamp it into your frame.

    registering isn't necessary here.

    pm me

    At least yours has a VIN mine has nothing at all and I have no paperwork at all, I don't even know what year it is I only found out that it was a blaster because I looked for yamaha atv pictures online lol. None of that stuff is required over here in Japan. Therefore when I take it back to the state I am going to have a hard time registering it if it needs to be registered where ever I am going lol.

    Honestly, if it has front hydraulic brakes it's a 03-06. If drums 88-02.
