What do I have?

I just got a Honda Foreman, VIN 478te220624302436. I was told it was a early 2000 something 400. I think it's a 2002 and I think it may be a 450 as it says displacement is 43?. Does anyone know how to decipher this? Thanks.

The front bumper is the easiest way to tell them apart. the 400 bumper is rounded and the 450 bumper has to straight cross bars.
Here is a picture of my bike which is a 400 frame. <a href="" target="_blank"> ... OMBASH.jpg</a>

Great! Going by the pictures it is a 450. Can anyone tell me if I'm right about it being a 2002? Thanks.
478 means it's a Honda ATV made in USA.
10th digit is the year. Yours is a 2002.
11th digit is the assembly plant. 4 means South Carolina
TE220 refers to the model. I don't know which model this code represents but my 400 is a model code TE202.

Hope this answers some of your questions.
TE220 is TRX450 manual shift ... TE224 is TRX450 electric shift ...
