2008 312r emission sticker location

For those that have 2008 USA F4 312r if you have the time can you tell me where your emission sticker is on the bike or can you look under your tail section. It is not inside my tail section and is not on my tank. i've spoken with two dealers and none are 100% sure.

Very much appreciated

I have a 2008 312R that we imported from the USA in late 2009.
I've just checked and as you suspected the emissions sticker is under the seat unit.
Do you need one?

Here is what we have found out about the under seat decals that relate to Vehicle Emission Control Information (VECI) and Motorcycle Noise Emission Control Information (MNECI) decals.

The VECI part number for the 312R is 8000B0498. No frame number allocations in the parts manual so it would appear the quoted model year of 2007 on this decal is applicable to the 2007 / 2008 & 2009 312R.
My 2008 312R frame number has a 10th digit of "8" which means that it was made in 2008. The VECI under the seat refers to a 2007 model year. I'd be willing to bet that all 312Rs have this generic 2007 decal, regardless of their year of manufacture.

Likewise the MNECI uses 2007 as its model year reference. The 312R MNECI decal is a part number 8C00A3397.

The part number info can be found on page K01 of the 312R parts manual.

312RR VECI & MNECI decals have different part numbers.

Ok, I've removed the decals and, to put it frankly, there is no way to use them again. The adhesive is very sticky and removing the decal has stretched it in places making it effectively useless. I suspect that this was the intention in the design of the decal - to be non transferrable.

I have checked my 2008 312R and it has the same sticker. Bogie, there must be someone in Cali with a registered 312R of this vintage. Noel, any help here?

Going through the registry, there are at least a dozen 2008 312R bikes listed as California registered. One of you folks should be able to help out in this....

My 10th digit is a 7...so, I am a 2007 manufactured bike registered as a 2008.

All bikes imported to the USA since early on are 50 state certified. There is no California only MV since the very first models. That's what that evap system is all about.

The 10th digit of the VIN should indicate the year model, not the year of manufacture. 2008 bikes were being made and sold in late 2007.....this is true of all vehicles. This fall, when the 2014 models start to show up you can check it out.....but it will be a letter E, not a number. 2000 was a letter Y, then 2001 began the number series. 2010 is an A, this year is a D.

Chuck, if your bike is registered as a 2008 with the 10th character a 7 then the was some confusion in the DMV or the dealer paperwork. Bear in mind, the US used to get bikes a year after everyone else. My 910R was a 2007 in Europe....but my 10th character is an 8. Maybe you got a Euro spec bike, possibly modified with the Evap system and other DOT requirements (reflectors, etc) so they could get some in the US early??

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

OK, so now I am a bit confused as to where I saw the 7. My hand written sales receipt, June 2007, shows the dike as an '07. Today everything I look at says the 10th digit is an 8. So, in short, the elves came by and either corrected my paperwork...or my eyesight.
