Re: VIN check website. Make sure that bike ain't stolen!!!

is there one for the motor #? A guy know got a motor from Connecticut and when he went to get the bike inspected the motor was stolen and the highway patrol ceased the bike and he had to pay the insurance company for the motor to get the bike back even though the frame wasn't stolen and in his name. I know where 90% of my motors came from but it would be nice to know for sure on when buying a rat bike

Re: VIN check website. Make sure that bike ain't stolen!!!

Yeah, motors are tough because some states don't track them. California has them on the title, but Texas doesn't. Not sure how to figure that one out.

Re: VIN check website. Make sure that bike ain't stolen!!!

yea that was the odd thing the motor came from Connecticut and was ceased in Washington

Edit: this all happened in 1996.

Re: VIN check website. Make sure that bike ain't stolen!!!

We don't have the engine numbers in the title here in florida.
I think i read that SUZUKI of America has the list of the matching frame to engine numbers. But i don't know if they would share that info.

Re: VIN check website. Make sure that bike ain't stolen!!!

My bike has fallen off this database. Apparently records are only kept for 5 years. If you put my VIN in, the bike comes up as not stolen, but I assure you, it is still very much stolen.

Long, no worries I'd be pissed if someone stole my bike too, that's why I prefer to sell here instead of Craigslist.

Re: VIN check website. Make sure that bike ain't stolen!!!

Yeah guys, The NCIB is actually reported to by MOST (not necessarily all) insurance, junk yards, but def all police entities. Also, the reporting agency may be on a daily update with NCIB or a weekly...could take a month based on a few factors that are not beyond logic.

My point here is that you don't want to rely on that site. I personally call the local PD when I'm considering buying anything with any kind of serial number that does not come with a title. I do this prior to purchasing it.

My latest acquisition is a '93 GSX-R 750 WP. No title. Haven't even researched to see if it's been wrecked or anything yet. Got a mess of wiring...story goes "guy buys bike, guy mods bike, guy wrecks bike racing someone, guy's Girl pulls the seat and cuts a bunch of wires"

If I could be -ANY- animal...

I'd be Human.

Re: VIN check website. Make sure that bike ain't stolen!!!

I noticed the link to the Canadian version of this service was dead so here's a new link.

This is tied to the national database used by the police, insurance companies, etc...
