Honda Model Number and Serial Number Locations

Model numbers and serial numbers can mean the difference between getting the right part and the wring one. For most Honda equipment, the base model number is on the starter cover, the engine cowling or another prominent location on the frame. The serial numbers are a little more difficult to find. Honda equipment generally has a serial number for the frame, and one for the engine.

In addition to the regular model designation, there are variations in model number such as K0, K1, K2, etc. These represent design changes made in the product line from time to time. The changes may be cosmetic or mechanical, but are not enough to warrant a completely new model designation. Many parts change from one version to the other, so it is usually necessary to determine which version you have. Serial numbers are the most reliable way of doing this. This page is not complete for all models and probably never will be, but it covers some of the most common questions.

Honda Engine Serial Number Location

When working on Honda engines, only one serial number is required, but other information may be necessary, such as carburetor or type number. For serial number location diagrams, please refer to our Honda engine parts section. We have diagrams for nearly all models of Honda general purpose engines.

Honda Lawnmower Serial Number Location
