Post them, you know someone will ask eventually anyway.
I may have asked this before and doing my best to follow along, but my exact VIN for my 480 Venture is 8CK-001607. Your sample in 1997 shows 8CK-001608... just one digit off. Is that the first VIN for 1997 or only an example. Still confused on if mine is a 96 or 97.1997:
8BD-019179--Bravo Long Track
8BE-009063--Ovation LE
8CS-000455--Mtn Max 600(new model)
8CP-000363--Mtn Max 700(new model)
8BT-001587--Mtn Max 800
8BF-010106--Phazer SS
8BG-013103--Phazer SS E-Start
8BH-009142--Phazer Mtn Lite

8BU-005111--Vmax-4 800
for those following along, remember to compare subsequent digits for year confirmation.
also notice that most new models per year will begin with 000 after the prefix code.
just a few more confusing years and it begins to straighten out some. i actually think there was some negative feedback to the factory over the confusing vins.
I've actually had to point people here to answer vin questions.there were many more views on it prior to its hiding.
