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!

The model year should appear on the ownership title slip (aka Pink Slip in at least some states) and on any registration papers, if they are available. Should have at least the title paper in order to register the bike.

Purchased the bike at a garage sale;no paper work. When I get the bike running, I will bring it to the Secretary of State for inspection.
