Run the VIN number on kawasaki's website. I'll see if I can find the link for ya.

Check out www.bikebandit.com for the parts you need. I've gone through them, seem to be alright on the prices. Dennis Kirk carries aftermarket plastic, gas tanks are quite spendy though.

*edit* - Here ya go.

Is the number on the frame that you found located on the steering column?

Write it out on here once, maybe I will be able to tell if it looks right

Your missing a digit. Should be 17, you have 16.

Still not working. I ran mine to make sure their site was working, and it worked. I'll keep digging for ya.

What was the number on the motor. That'll give you the size at least.

They have every bike on there. It's an 80 cc motor.

*edit* - I take that back, I just read they didn't run standard 17 digit VIN until 80-81.

No problem. I'll keep digging. So far I have eliminated the '80 model since the pipe is on the other side for them. That should eliminate 80-83 models.

The 10th digit is the year code. Your 10th digit is "A," according to my findings so far that means it's a 1980...which makes no since because the 1980 KX80's had the pipe running on the left side of the engine.
