  1. VIN/Tire Pressure/Model Year Sticker Location?

    Dominator / FMX
    In the box of parts that came with the '89 NX650 that I just bought, I found the metal plate/sticker that shows the VIN, tire pressure info, model year, etc. Where does this thing belong on the bike? I want to glue it back on, but I can't find it on parts diagrams.
