Is this engine number an '04 or an '05? - ZX100CE021107

I bought a spare engine off ebay last year. The number stamped on it is:

ZX100CE021107

I'm hoping it is an engine assembled after the dreaded generator woes in the early 2004 engines.

Thanks in advance.

You can't tell only by the engine#, you need the vin# to be sure.
By the way your engine should be ZXT00CExxxxxx

I know for sure that from vin#20000 onwards, the model is 05',
so i guess it's a 05.

If you have the vin#, i will tell you for sure.

I would listen to tasos, but tasos he bought the engine off ebay and can't get the Vin#, I would think at this point he would need to dis. assemble the generator and compare parts

, if you don't have the vin#, that's the only way to be sure.

Thanks for the responses.

If I remove the generator parts in my spare engine (the one that I'm hoping is a 2005), how can I tell if the parts are the "good" ones?

I think if you download the C1-C2 service manuals and check the generator assembly/disassebly, you should be able to spot the differences.

yeah, that should work but kind of embarrass because we always tell everyone to try a Search but even I canít find a Thread that had actual part # differences between the 04 and 05 Generator. I think former username SCzx10r now 10speed is the one that did that thread so maybe PM himÖ.sorry but Iím sure it has been posted how to tell the diff. just canít find that Thread right now.

Thanks, guys. Great info. Just what I needed.

Believe me, I have searched a lot, and appreciate the many posts from people sharing what they know and have experienced.

Based on my searching in here, one thing I do not think has been determined yet is the answer to this question:

I've only seen a bunch of posts like, "My VIN is so-and-so and I [have/have not] had a generator problem."
