I've just got the V5 back for my Cosa and there's an error in the chassis number prefix it says 'VNRT1' instead of 'VNR1T' - is this going to be a problem, like when I take it for an MOt or something?

Do I need to fix it somehow and how much hassle is it likely to be?

Ross , was it correct before you sent it off ? Or is it a new registration ?

I suggest you return the V5 to DVLA with a covering letter and supply a photo of the whole frame number.
Expect hassle, if you don't get any, result !!

It appears to be a UK bike from new 11 previous keepers.

I only had the supplement so not sure - I didn't think to check.

The guzzi I have owned since 1979 has always had 998 as the cc's in the V5. I spent lots of of paper, envelopes and stamps trying - in vain - to have the correct engine size (948) listed when petrol rationing was mooted.
Mostly the replies were along the lines of " we're never wrong" or "we're not bothered". Still says 998cc.

Had an li150 that had an engine size or 1480 cc. If only.
