    Default Where is the M109 assembly plant?

    If it's been discussed on the site before I apoligize to all "use the search feature" nazi's but I can't find it on here or on the web. I even tried a couple different VIN number decoders and they don't recognize the 109's VIN other than it's a Suzuki and a motorcycle. Where is the M109's assembly plant? My Honda was built in Ohio although all the parts were made overseas (Just like Harley) Nice piece of trivia I enjoyed using to piss the hardcore HD riders off...Jason

    Sorry, I'm a little braindead for a Monday. I don't understand what you're up to or where you're going with your question. How do you intend to use this trivia?

    The factory is at:
    300 Takatsuka
    Hamamatsu, Shizuoka-Pref
    JAPAN

    The assembly plant is right on your V.I.N. sticker right by the coolant jug.

    I'm not now that I found out it's actually made in Japan. My Honda was made in Ohio, I thought maybe the 9 was built in the US also...Jason

    Don't know but mine (NZ.) and JR's (Fl.) were next to each other on the prod line if serial #'s can be taken as sequential.
    Mine is JS1CA121300100093..interesting bit of dis-information?

    The first three characters of the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) is the World Manufacturer Identifier (WMI) "J" is Japan, "S" is Suzuki and "1" is the particular plant designator. You should find your American Honda starts with "1" for the US. (You guys must have started the whole system) Australian vehicles start with 6, German start with "W" I guess it stands for West Germany. The next 5 or 6 characters are the model identifier and the last 6 to 8 are the serial number. As a warranty administartor for Toyota, Subaru and Holden (Australian GM) I use VIN's every day. It's so much fun

    Cheers from down-under,

    P.S. Get my 109 tomorrow!
