    I'm trying to get my new (to me) 1200gs licensed in California and can't find the engine number! Where the heck is the thing? Anyone?

    Easy.

    Put bike on centrestand.

    On your knees, now. With flashlite.

    Start at right side oxygen sensor, a wired electrical item screwed directly into the right side exhaust pipe.

    Now, look up about40mm.

    There is your engine number, on surface of engine case, just below fins of right side cylinder head. Should be thirteen characters or so.
