mped?
I live in a state that requires the engine number when getting the title transferred. I figured out what "part number" was used as the engine number because the cast plate on the engine is blank. How is this possible? Anyone heard of this before?
The raised "dimpling" on the plate appears to be a security type surface that would obviously show if anyone had tried to file or remove a number. As you can see in my post it looks virgin and untouched. Are there engine cases available that don;t have numbers?

1998 r1100r Thanks.

I will post the pic when I figure out how to do it later, have to run right now.

Have you talked to a BMW dealer about it? Does seem strange but maybe there is a reason and they can check the records based on any other numbers you can find on it.

plate

I did talk to a dealer, he said its possible that the case was replaced. I guess some cases are sold without a number.
