hi all, bought a Kx125 as my first bike from classifeid advertisment. I am planning on getting my hands dirty and i need to know how old the bike is. Is it possible to tell from the frame number? it goes as follows JKAKX125LLA00xxxx
(last four digits removed for security) any help would be great.

in your "Bikes" sig. you say that you own a '01. i dont know how different it is where you live compared to the US, but here, the last digit in the year model of the bike is the 10th digit( to the right) of the VIN. maybe you could post a pic or match it up with a stock photo if the graphics are stock :nod: .

It looks a lot newer than a 1990. A 2001 it is..
It seems as if you got the VIN number wrong.
Because if it was the same VIN, then it would definitely be a 1990.
I'm positive.
