Hi i jsut bought a bike and on the title sheet it said that it was a 2002 model. But the VIN number said that it was a J1 model is that normal?

okay..thanks for the advice greenenvy. i went back and checked the vin number on the stem. Its the engraved one and yea it matches =\. So the stikcer on left side of the frame, right side of the frame, stem engraving, and engine vin all matched. And all has the "J1" in the numbers. I also wanted to point out again that this manufactor date on the right side of the frame as the manufactorer date as 9/01. Do you all think i should call kawasaki up and ask if they can check. I really don't know whats the proble. Thanks for your help.And yea i bought this bike from a individual but he bought it from the dealer and it has the same VIN when the dealer sold it to him on the old title.
Thanks again,
YelloNinja

yea its the color scheme of the 2002. the only thing that threw me off was when the progressive operator told me thats its a J1 when i gave him the VIN number. I was like huh, but he said it saved me 70 bucks so i was jsut thrilled at the price then i got off the phone and it didn't make since becuase the manual said the 2002 was a j3.
