Try looking on the upper frame tube on the rear left side under the wheel well. The number should be UATV01XXXXXXXX where the 01 is the year and X could be any other number or letter.

Have a Problem?

Troubleshooting First Steps, An amazing number of problems are cured with just these two items.

1. Make sure your battery is FULLY Charged.
2. Try a new spark plug.

Search threads, Check Pinned Section. Pinned Topics Manual or wiring diagram? Manuals

Improving Search.

Better results when searching for specific information. To find threads where ALL the words, instead of ANY of the words "650H1, Carb, Jetting, Needle Jet, Snorkel" were found...Open up a search window in In the find box type without the quotes "650H1 Carb Jetting Needle Jet Snorkel" & Press return. Find threads, replies or topics by a specific member; just by inserting their user name into the search list; Chances are, your problem is NOT unique and it has been solved many times before.

Are you in a hurry to get an answer?
Use the Google Search Tip

KromThanks very much for that very detailed info package.....this ATV belonged to my deceased father-in-law,and I have inherited same.Hoping to have some fun times with it.Hard to believe that I've never ridden it,and we lived only 10 miles apart. Once again, my sincere thanks.
P.S. Being new to this site,and computers in general, please excuse me if I don't navigate properly...I will try to learn how!

similar problem. acquired ATV but no idea where VIN is.....and at this point i'm really hoping it is not a stolen ATV

near as I can figure its either a 2006 or 2008 arctic cat 366, 4x4. it's not under the left rear wheel well anywhere on the frame as far as I can see. anyone have any tips???????

rather urgent, even if it is not stolen I have moved to a state where they are required to be registered and titled (previously in a state that did not require this)....trying to do the right thing and just getting frustrated.

Not sure on the 366 but try left front frame around the rad support. They can be hard to see as they are etched right into the metal
