Looking for help Kawasaki 100

I just learned about this Forum after purchasing what I believe to be a 1975 Kawasaki 100 G5. After going online, i am confused between the Identification number on the bike and the number of the motor; this is what i found: Manufacturer date: 4/1975
Identification number: G5-091179
Number stamped on motor: G5E-090309

I am trying to figure out the following:
1) What model year is this bike..1974 or 1975
2) Is this the original motor? if not, any ideas what year the motor is?

I am trying to order parts for the Mikuni carb and some other missing
parts for the bike.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

From cyclechaos.com I'd guess it's a 75 G5. The date of mfg corresponds to a 75 model.
The 76 KE100 which replaced the G5 probably would have begun production some time after June.

Zedder.com is another place ot check.
