Vehicle identification numbers stamped onto snowmobiles follow the same decoding rules as other motor vehicles. The serial number is a 17-digit code that provides information about the manufacturing location, the manufacturer and the number of the vehicle.
The first digit represents the country of manufacture; 1 or 4 is typically used if the snowmobile was built in the United States. The second digit of Ski-Doo snowmobiles should always be the letter B. The last five digits of each serial number represent the number of the unit produced. For example, the number 00011 indicates that the snowmobile was the 11th to come off the model's assembly line in its production year.Learn more about Vehicles
