Right then I'm trying to sort out my k100 and get it working again however the ignition is causing me problems considering the thieves busted it up. Now my k100 is a 1984 RS. So I'm wondering does anyone know if the ignitions will fit it from any of the other years or maybe the k1100's Question

Image of the bike as it stands; so far removed rear foot pegs, snapped crank case bolt, damaged clocks (going to bin them), headlight bracket. Still got the new headlight to go on, seat is being done by an "expert" and a tail piece added plus replace a few other parts.

Once the wirings done she will be back on the road; so this ignition is holding me up at the moment and they are like rocking horse faeces.

Thanks I hate looking on websites like that, but if needs must so be it. It's only because I can never work out the vin. The only numbers on the bike are following.  0013627K100RS and 104EA04848628

From them I'm guessing it's the 04th month of 84 Question

The first number you have listed is the Chassis Number and model - aka the VIN for these bikes (stamped on the frame - often also shown on a riveted on plaque) attached to the frame. i.e. a K100RS with VIN 001362

The second number is the engine number (stamped on the rear right of the engine). I understand it means 4th week of 84 (rather than 4th month) and production number 8628.

Ah thank you that makes a lot more sense, I feel quite embarrassed not to actually know these things. However we all have to learn at some point.

Quite nice knowing it's older than I thought as well and still going.

The ICU and coils will fit from any K100. Don't use the grey coils but use the brown ones with the orange towers. K1100 coils will not work well and could fry the ICU.

Your first number is not really the VIN but it contains the last 7 digits of the actual VIN.
A VIN number is made up of 17 characters and will not contain the model. The number you have may be stamped on the compliance plate rivited to the frame as BAE says but the actual 17 character VIN number will be stamped onto the frame somewhere nearby probably just above the R/H engine mount at the gearbox. Sometimes they're hard to see because of repainting or rust and corosion can obscure the stamping. The complete VIN number should also be on your vehicle registration papers.

The first 9 characters contain manufacturer details and vehicle type with the 10th character being a letter which designates the year it was marketed. 'E' was used for 1984 (also 2014).
The last 7 digits are the model details and can be entered into realoem.com to determine all you need to know about your bike's model and parts used.

These are your bike's details
Series K859 (1982 - 1991)
Model: K100RS
Market: EU
Manufactured: 01/1984
Here's a link to all your parts

There's often a bit of confusion determining the date of manufacture because the Build Date and the date it was marketed can be confused. The compliance plate on my bike for example says it was built 07/1989 BUT the VIN, according to realoem.com, says it was built 11/1988. My 10th character is 'K' which means it was marketed in 1989. So although it was made in '88, it was sold/marketed in Australia as an '89 built model.
