Dear all,

To complete my website, i'm looking for some VIN plate/stickers picture of RD/RZ350 from Canada and RZ350 from USA. From what I have seen, it's always white stickers in those countries.

BTW what is the name of those stickers here ?

Could you send me picture of your plates ? you can erase the last 2-3 digits of the serial number if you feel it a secret information but I don't see the risk (here in France at least).

Plate of my '80 RD350LC 4L0 European sister of your 4Y3

Plate of my '89 RD350F2 3DH European sister of your 3FB

My mail: [*]www.rd350lc.net@gmail.com[*]

Thank you

Xavier

Yes, Canadian plates are white stickers. My RD350LC from '81 only had the numbers stamped in the frame, and engine. Was not a 17 digit code back then. The white sticker had Canadian acceptance noted, but no vin. My vin for that bike was 0001111.

The Canadian ones also had a round (about 20mm diameter) Transport Canada approval sticker, maybe the same one Rory is referring to, as well as a white sticker that looked similar to the metal plates above (at least on my '85).

No * on vin or frame , in fact it's the same vin sticker as the RD400 .

Merci Zedixe13 !

4Y3 - 000001 !!!! does it means it's the first pre-production from Canada ?

Yes Jon, no stars * before and after the VIN on chassis and engine in Canada.

So did Yamaha consider that In Europe, people will restamp their engine/frame but in Australia and Canada there are more honest so no stars are needed ? :smt003

Does someone could take a picture of the Transport Canada approval sticker ?

thanks

Xavier

Xavier , 4Y3 - 000001 provient directement de mon imagination .

In Canada we don't restamp frame , we just buy another cheap bike for parts .

Transport Canada sticker on the headstock near the vin for the LC and on the right frame gusset behind the radiator on all RZ .

nice work Xavier. one thing there is a typo, the Aussie RZ 1XH is not from 89, its 88 - the compliance has the year in it.

If i come across any more Aussie ones I'll send you some pics.
