Frame and Engine Numbers

Postby oldjapanesebikes » Thu Apr 14, 2011 1:06 am

Is there a list somewhere about of the frame and engine numbers for the T500 by year ? The only one I've seen is here, and it seems to be incorrect for 1968, 1969 and 1970. I'm pretty sure the start point would have been 10001 rather than an odd number like 12518 as shown.

Thanks ! 8-)

Ian:

The chart you have seems to jibe with the engine and frame numbers on the charts attached to the Ozebook Suzuki Compendium site (see links below).

Take care,
MK

Thats true MK - 1971 and higher look fine. As per my post, I was questioning the 1968, 1969 and 1970 numbers.

Anyone ?

Hi, Mate. The only other list I know of is on Muzza's site http://www.ozebook.com/compendium/t500_files/enginenum.htm & the numbers appear to be the same. Cheers, Paul.

I'm still looking for higher and lower engine/frame numbers for the 500/5, MkI, MkII and MkIII, as well as higher model 'B' numbers than what I've been able to capture so far on this list. Any and all input is appreciated. Note that this isn't a 'register', so I'm not recording numbers in the middle of each production range - just the edge numbers for each range as I'm just trying to bracket the production numbers - especially for the older models. If you have a lower or higher number for the above T/GT500 models, then I'd like to hear from you !

Thanks ! 8-)
