    He knowledgeable folks, let me ask a dumb question. Taking my bike in for 6000 mile service and want to know how everyone is locating their manufacture date. I've been reading through the recalls and service bulletins and have already found tank cracks. Yay! Just wondering what else I might want to check out or mention to have them check out.

    Anyway, I can't find the manufacture date on any of the documents I have (which doesnt mean it isnt there :) ) Anyway, is this something only the dealer can tell me or is there any way for me to find out?

    Many thanks for pointing me in the right direction...

    The date of manufacture should be on the manufacturers compliance label on the bike. On most bikes it is affixed on the frame ahead of the fuel tank. It is the label where the VIN is located.
