Hi Guys,
whereabouts on a MT350 will you find the data-plate containing the relevant number to run through the Merlin database?
a photo would be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Look below the left hand side of the handlebars and tilt your neck to look at the frame

If you can't find the number because it has been ground off , your bike may have been stolen. The number should be the same as on your V5

Thanks for the response, however, I was referring to the 6 figure ERM number, similar to GG96AA for example. I believe the one on the headstock is thew frame number.

You want the original reg number used in the Army.

just send mod your frame no,
they have all the info from that,
last time i had an email back from them they said they were closing the merlin database down
but still sent me the info [this was probably 18 months ago].

I have received details from frame numbers in years gone by. MOD can advise, you'll probably be able to find the current address by googling. They were obliged to release details under the Freedom of Information Act, but that might have changed

Thanks for the help and advice guys. I have access to the Merlin archive but need the six figure ERM number. I've sent an FOI request to the MOD asking for the military reg etc,so will wait and see what they come up with.

That's me :lol: that military registration is written in a few places on my bike. But the most visable is behind the number plate painted on the green plastic..
