What number SR do I have?

This is a wierd one guys but here goes...I am trying to determine what the serial numbers were on the F4SR series. Were they sequential? We all know that 300 were made and they were not imported into the US of A. We all know that they were supposed to be the Ago reps until Ago found out about the 1000cc's planned for the following year. We all know that the front fenders were color matched to the red on the body and that they guage pack was white faced and signed in red.

What I don't know is what number of the 300 that I have!?!?!? Just curious more than anything else.

I thought the SR just used the SPR engines and looked identical to the Evo 3 except for the Ago tacho face ?
Doesn't have SR on it anywhere does it ? Dial face maybe ?
Does it have the SPR blue rear spring ?

It was the runout 750 before they launched the 1000, with an SPR engine at the price of a normal Evo 3. Good value at the time.

I didn't realize it had a limited run of 300 only as it has no plaque like the other official limited runs.

Exactly Right

Yes, white faced guages signed by Ago and a plaque at the triple tree that says SR, but no 1/300 or whichever one it is. I'll have to check the suspension color...don't recall but blue spring does sound right.

If it has a unique model code creating the VIN (most bikes do) then the last part of the VIN (the production sequence number) may give you the answer.

For instance, all the F4CCs I looked at (just a few) the last numbers of the VIN matched the production number (66 of 100, etc).

I don't know if this is true for all the special productions. Maybe some owners could verify with their Agos or SPRs or Tambos

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

The last 3 of the VIN on my Senna is not even close, in fact its over 300.

Well....blows that theory. Maybe because the base model is standard F4 and same as all the F4 1000, where the CC is a different engine?

Oh well, I tried.

I thought the same mate. The other thought I had was if they were sequentially produced, and we knew the first and last numbers, then we could tell which number each SR is.
