    WELL SCHITTS. Today i took a picture of the VIN tag for the court ordered title paperwork and i noticed the label start out with "THIS 1986 MOTORCYCLE" meets EPA noise emmisions......... The date of manufacture says 08/85 though. So i guess its an 86 according to the EPA declaration label. A little air has escaped the balloon.

    I would rather trust my bike to a "QUACK" that KNOWS how to fix it rather than a book worm that THINKS HE KNOWS how to fix it.

    '85 or '86, why does this matter?

    When I worked in the auto industry they commonly switched over to the new models during the july 4th shutdown period.

    Its a "technicality" of sorts to me. 85 was the first year of production but the label says 86. Ive read about the first generation having the soft valve issue and that what this bike was brought in for and the valves were replaced. Maybe it is an 85???? Ive been googling and cant find any info about 86 bikes having the issue.
