F4 SR or not?

Hello to everyone! I found a F4 750 and the seller claims that it is an SR. The VIN is ZCGF401AD4V006816. Everything else looks in order. The only this that concerns me is the fact that all SR's have BD4 on the VIN in stead of AD4.. Any help? Thanks guys

Welcome to the family !!! The dash and plaque certainly indicate it is an SR....remember, the SR is a parts bin bike. The last of the 750 F4.
Originally planed to be the "Ago" but the 1000 was being released, so the first 1000's became the "Ago" model.

SRs were made of all the parts left over on the 750 assembly line, so the frame could just be a convenient extra from an earlier production run of F4s. Most important is the engine...should have a SPR engine if it is a true "SR".

Where on the planet are you? Please add that to your profile. Ian Savs has a SR. Wonder what his VIN says..???

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

Hi George.Chris. I’m not where I can look at the Vin number of the motorcycle right now but I will check when I get back on Friday or Saturday. It sounds like I may have posted it before and it is sequential with DK’s
In your pic The clocks and the plaque look right. , Check the spec sticker on the Spl you as well like Ed said, it should say SPR/Senna 750.
As has been said before a lot of these were put together from parts. As far as I know mine is a full factory built spec, gold pipes, plaque, ago clocks...I believe it was the only one that was ever imported to the United States, it was brought in by a fellow in Florida who knew someone in customs is what I’ve been told, and I have firm belief that it was bought at red dog motorcycles in Kent UK and is the exact motorcycle pictured and featured in the MCN article Ralf posted. The only other one I knew of in the US was a part bin bike in Las Vegas that had RG3 pipes the black forks like DK’s and some carbon fiber bits & pieces. I picked mine up for 8K from a guy who didn’t really know what he had, I would figure mine should be at least worth nine or 10 in good shape.(I restored it completely) I would question the frame Vin number though, as maybe it is been down and have the frame replaced? Send some pictures of the exhaust & wheels

What we've got here, is failure to communicate.
