Find the vehicle identification number on a Polaris all-terrain vehicle on the left side frame rail, on the right side of the left-front wheel well next to the fender. The vehicle's registration papers and title also contain the VIN.
The VIN is a 17-digit number that uniquely identifies a vehicle. Auto mechanics often use the VIN when ordering the correct replacement parts from suppliers. The first two digits indicate where the ATV was manufactured. The third to eighth digits contain information on the vehicle type, body and engine. The ninth digit checks for the VIN's legitimacy. The 10th digit tells when the vehicle was made, while the 11th digit indicates the plant code. The 12th to 17th characters specify the build sequence and serial number of the vehicle.
