Nevermind. Sorry.

Not sure how I missed it on the fist look. Build sticker is on right fork above wheel. Mine is a July build.

I'm trying to figure out when my K1600GT was built without hassling the dealer. I just bought it Friday. The usual VIN decoder shows it as an '09 R1200GS.

I cannot even find the VIN plate on this bike (I did find a number on the engine but it is not the VIN.

I'm curious as to build date. The later the better, right? Thanks.

2017 R1200GS Rallye
2014 Husky FE501

On the right side of the wheel carrier (the forks), up near the pivot. Turn your forks to the left, then look up the nose with a flashlight. The build month/year is in the right end of the sticker.
