Just by looking at the vin number won't tell you the year of your bike. You need to write the vin number down and get on the phone with a dealer that operates your type of motorcycle manufacture. Tell them the vin number and then they can tell you what year it is. If it isn't older than a 1983 you can use this method on all 17 digit vin numbers cars, bikes, atv's etc. code follows,count to the tenth digit,D IS 1983 E 84. F 85. G 86.H 87.J 88.K 89.L 90.M 91. N 92.P 93.R 94. S 95.T 96.V 97. W 98.X 99.Y 2000. 1 01. 2 02.3 03. 4 04. 5 05. 6 06.7 07. You sholdn't have any problem understanding this.
