Thanks for all replies.
The Vin number starts JH25C They said if it was JH2SC it was registered in Portugal.
The odd thing is The V5 says uk bike reg date is same as man date....the same as my uk car V5.
it has the euro tail (the dark transfer) the temp is in centigrade and it has the low fuel warning light no fuel blocks like eu ??? oh well
Firstly, who is "they"?
It can't be JH2"5"C - It has to start with JH2"S"C. So either someone's entered it incorrectly or you're not reading it correctly.
JH2SC does not mean it was registered in Portugal. JH2 means it's a Honda 2 wheeler made in Japan.
SC is the standard code for all FireBlades. SC44 is the code for the CBR929RR, SC50
for the CBR954RR, SC57 is the CBR1000RR
The 8th digit will give more information as to the country!
For example my VIN starts with JH2SC44U - which says it's a Japan made 2 wheeler from Honda for the Australian/New Zealand market!
U is Honda's code for AU/NZ. After reading around it appears the VIN digit for Europe is just 'A' - doesn't appear to break it down further by country. So I suspect yours will be starting with JH2SC44A
I'm also confused as to why you can't work out whether your speedo is currently in mph or km/h, the units should be indicated and you will know whether it's mph or km/h. Are you sure you have the correct cluster? Can you post a picture of your cluster with the ignition turned ON please?
I don't have CBR954, but my CBR929 does not have a fuel indication reading, and I don't think the CBR954 does either, only the low fuel warning light.
