Hi everyone I am new to the forum and have a general question.  Does anyone know how to tell the year of a CFMOTO Z800US-A by the vehicle Identification No.

Looking at the VIN, the 8th character from the right will be a letter, followed by a 6 and your serial number.  That letter corresponds to a year relative to 2010.  A=2010, B=2011, C=2012, D=2013, E=2014, F=2015, G=2016, H=2017...

VIN # example: LCELDTS44G6000001

8th character from the right is a G, so that's a 2016.
I work for CFMOTO USA, hence the name.  My real name is Greg, and if you message one of the social media accounts, I'll probably be the one who answers there too.

Given your example, what is the year model for this VIN?

LCELVYZ44J6000181

This vehicle is offered for sale by an authorized CFMOTO dealer in Mexico.
Is it possible, I wonder, to determine the date of manufacture?

J= 2018
If it has Pistons or Tits you will encounter problems.

I have a H so is it really a 2017? The dealer sold it as a 2018.
CFMOTO Cforce 520L 2018 all stock, no modification.

I just looked at my title and the VIN is: LCELVYZ12J6001139 but the year says 2018.
So this does not quite follow the letter per year designation. Guessing they skipped I and went to J for 2018.
Just an observation.

I don't believe any manufacturer will use the letter "I" in the vin as it gets mistake as the number "1"
