On our 851 it’s on thr front passenger outside frame face, and if memory serves me, about where the rear of the front spring shackle/perch is. They can be very hard to see, especially if someone sand blasted or sanded the frame, and often they can be filled in with paint. The numbers are hand struck about 3/4 of an inch high. My guess is depending on body style it may or may not be in the exact same place.

Ed it correct.  And  "faint" may be the operative word here too.  Also to help, you are looking for a 4 digit number and I believe the number on the frame is 1000 lower than the number on the series tag (as they are so faintly stamped it helps to know the number to look for as could be near nothing left of the number to find).

All is correct except the font is 1/2 inch. The frame number is 1000 less than the cowl tag
