This is a common topic and if you look back through the archives you would find this written on Nov. 5th.

For the shifter drivers who want to figure out the year your kart was produced here is a list of the models by year for the 32 mm Tube shifter karts.
CR632 - 1996
CR632B ws like1997
CR832 was 1998

CR932 - 1999

CR32X was ‘00

CR32Z was ‘01

CR32V was 2001

CR32SR was ‘03


CR32ST ‘05 CM32ST was also produced.

The CR aspect of the code says it is a front brake kart and the attachment point on the steering upright has the shift lever bracket.

Just because your kart says CR9 ( standing for 1999 procuction) it does not mean that the kart went into use at that time. So there might still be new karts in a box that were produced 3 and 4 years ago.

Where do you look to find the numbers? From 1996-2002 the Serial number of the chassis and the product designation numbers as listed above were located on the left side bearing hanger where the brake caliper attaches to the kart. In recent years it has been on the same bearing hanger only to the backside. A plate is often welded on to the frame with the Birel name and a series of numbers. That is the homoligation details.
There are numerous other models of Birels in circulation and we can assist clients who need more information on a case by case basis. The primary purpose of this post is to show you the codes and locations for the different years using the shifter chassis as an example. I hope this helps for those who might have future questions.

Thanks a lot. My kart has CR932 on the plate, so i guess it's 99.

Thanks again
