Beginning in 1980 Model Year, the world standard became "Globally" based on how a vehicle (anything mobile that had a "title"), short of "Sleds" at that time (Naturally), used the 10th POSITION in their 17 CHARACTER Vin listing as how to determine exactly what Model Year it officially was....

Below is a list of 1980 through upcoming 2019 and its "10th" character...

1980: A
1981: B
1982: C
1983: D
1984: E
1985: F
1986: G
1987: H
1988: J
1989: K
1990: L
1991: M
1992: N
1993: P
1994: R
1995: S
1996: T
1997: V
1998: W
1999: X
----------
NOTE: Sleds began using this in 2000 with the "Y" as the 10th character

2000: Y
2001: 1
2002: 2
2003: 3
2004: 4
2005: 5
2006: 6
2007: 7
2008: 8
2009: 9

2010: A
2011: B
2012: C
2013: D
2014: E
2015: F
2016: G
2017: H
2018: J
2019: K

Note: the letters: I, O, Q, U are not used due to the possibility of them being confused with other alpha or numerical markings....

(There really wasnt a use for the "Z")

I didn’t pay attention to where it was when I searched for it for THerman in his vin help thread.

660, it was in sleds pinned topics at that time. I added it to ATV pinned topics after noting I’d never posted it there.
I've looked in pinned topics and there is a few threads that shouldn't be in there. Looks like new members accidently started threads in that forum. We can get doorfx to move those as he's always looking for something to do lol. He can do the atv forum.

Hello..
I have a 2003 aric cat 400 4x4 automatic, green.. I need to order a new one way starter bearing. I did a search on line with the numbers that are on the bearing but wasnt able to locate anything. I used all of the numbers that are on the assembly..still nothing. I just want to make sure that I order the right one. I did order a new flywheel and stator that fits.. I have looked every where on the engine and for the life of me cant find any numbers on it. I do have the vin number.. anyways, does anyone know where exactly the numbers would be to find the exact model number. Or are all of the bearings interchangeable?
