Frame Number Advice Please.

My 2005 CBR1000RR was supplied by a reputable shop to the previous owner as a track day bike that had been built from an insurance write-off doner machine, six years ago.

Having recently purchased the bike, I'm now going over it to make it ready for next year and I thought I'd look into it's history.

My first idea was to carry out a finance check on the frame number to see what I could find out.

This drew a blank as there are only 16 digits and there shoudl be 17. I then went to the Vehicle Licencing Authority and asked them what they could tell me, they also said they couldn't help as there are only 16 digits.

I have all the receipts etc from the original sale and I have no real need to find out the history, but I am curious.

Has the number been 'doctored', has Honda ever made frames with only 16 digits (maybe for other countries), has the factory left a number off, or is there some other more sinister reason?

I know JH2SC57 is for the CBR1000RR, but where should the missing digit (if it is missing) be marked?

If anyone has a 2004/20005 bike, could you compare my number with yours and let me know if it looks similar.

I have erased the last four numbers (for obvious reasons.)

Any thoughts are welcome.

Thank you.

Pete

I'd really appreciate it if anyone with a 2004 to 2006 CBR1000RR would take a look at their frame number and let me know how (if) it is set out differently to mine.
I know there is a digit missing, but don't know where from or what it is.
Thanks.

Where you have the "5734" is 4 digits. Mine has 5.
