It can be difficult to find the correct parts for your Honda motorcycle if you are not sure which exact model you have.
Outlined below are some of the ways in which you can identify your exact Honda model.
The colour label can be found on most Honda motorcycles made after 1980. It can usually be found either
* Under the seat - it will either be attached to the top surface of the rear fender or to one of the frame cross rails.
* Under the left side or seat panel - it will be stuck to one of the vertical frame rails.
If you are unable to find the colour label on your bike, you can use the following details to locate your frame and engine number, and then use the ID MY MODEL FORM link below to send us those details so that we can ID your model for you.
