H1 Vs. H2 VINs

Curious if there is a way to distinguish the H1 and H2 via an identifier in the VIN number? I have a couple of them here I am fairly sure are H2s but want to confirm. Late 89 build date on one.

Can you tell by the swing arm and oil filter? Or maybe you just have the frames....

There are part differences (swingarms, oil pans and internal engine parts) and I am currently investigating the VINs as I have a similar issue. Will keep you posted.

I do not trust the ancillary parts on either of these bikes are original. I believe both are 90's yet one has a 89 style square radiator and an external filter while the other does not have the external filter and has the rounded radiator. Both oil pans are the same.

Ninjanut and me have chatted about this is the recent past.

I have had a 89 with the braced swinger and I believe some of the 90 bits as well.

Really trying to get an official confirmation through VIN.

10-4 Evan
If the bikes are that suspect maybe the engine serial numbers are a better indicator.
Good luck! Miss my H1😕

The oil pans are completely different. 89 has no filter cartridge and oil switch threaded into left hand side. 90 has the internal filter cartridge with the oil switch on the right hand side. They are interchangeable and use the same gasket.
I have a known 89 motor and a known 90 motor. I can PM you the engine numbers for you to compare if you would like. I am still working on the VIN info and will keep you posted on that.
