If you do a search using VIN as your search criteria you will find oodles of threads that will tell you it's the 10th digit of the vin that denotes the year of the bike. You'll also find numerous charts and vin decoders listing all sorts of relevant info.
 
The Kawasaki web site has a page to enter your VIN and it gives you all of the info on the bike in question, don't know about the others.
