Funny, I just noticed I have those solid oil lines on my 2012 T100.

Actually, although registration says it's a 2012, the VIN corresponds to a 2013, that explains!

It does look cleaner imho.

I have the 2013 BG Thurxton, have the solid oil cooler lines but the engine block doesn't have the polished fins?

What's the tenth digit of the VIN?

It's actually the 11th digit on those VIN, and it's a D.

And since I also have the old-style cylinder fins as well, here is a photograph.

No, I don't think this is correct. The 10th digit or character (when counted from the left; sorry, I don't mean to insult, but I used to work with VINS everyday and would have to explain this to techs regularly) shall determine the model year. This is a world wide standard.

If your Bonnie is a 2013, then the tenth digit is a D. 2012 = C. The eleventh digit or character, denoting the plant of manufacture, is a T (Thailand).

Hello, no insult taken but you made me doubt, I just went and checked on the bike itself. The 10th digit is a G, I don't know what it means but that's certainly not the year. The 11th digit is a D.

I seem to remember seeing this discussed somewhere already, perhaps on this forum.

Well, that is weird. I guess I'm not as smart as I thought I was. Sorry Jihema.

Perhaps it's a New Zealand thing? In any case, there's lots of interesting info on VINs here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vehicle...ication_Number





We now return to our regularly scheduled topic.

Looks correct to me, though I'm no expert. What do you mean?

Why do you guys always want more motor? I'm going to go ahead with a Bonnie because it meets my criteria, looks good, etc but honestly I'd much prefer something in the 400-600cc range especially if it was 50-100lbs lighter.
