ATV title tech...

I'm looking into a trade on the blazer, for a late '90s ATV. I have no information on the bike as the guy hasn't gotten back to me. Long story short, he just had a car repo'd and doesn't have a way to get back and forth to work--and is in a bind for money.

I don't really need the ATV, but it's easier to hide from code enforcement than a truck .

Anyhow, I wasn't worried about the deal until the issue of a title was brought up. That got me to thinking that there may be something off with the bike so I'm more than a little leery of the deal now. The last two bikes that I had (old 3-wheelers) didn't have titles and I wasn't aware of the need for them. All I've ever had on one was a bill of sale. In talking to another buddy of mine, he said you needed a title to get an OHV sticker for it...

There again, I doubt it'll ever leave my yard or the ranch, but just in case I'd still like to have the option...


So, school me on ATV titles?

Depending on how old the bike is, it should have a title. The bike might not be "stolen", but seeing as he just had his vehicle repossessed, the bike might be under repo status also. But you said that it was a 90's model atv, so i really dought it is. My 1998 Honda had a title, so this one should. I would go by and look at it again and glance at the vin. You can then check to see if its stolen.

All you need to get a ohv sticker is $$ and your name.

My 4 wheeler doesnt have a title & i have no problems.

That's what I was thinking, but my "biker" buddy said that he had to have one for a 250 enduro bike of some sort...he's got issues, that's why I came here to ask


I havn't looked at the 4 wheeler yet, and havn't talked to the guy first-hand even. This is all going through aforementioned "biker" buddy. Nobody seems to want to buy my junk, so I'll just trade it all off even if I come out crap on the deal. Not worth my time storing it any longer. I might be able to use a 4 wheeler a couple times a year, that's better than this dang jeep thing.


Thanks for the info guys, I've got a call into the man, we'll see how he feels about unloading it and try and get a better feel what he might be up to. I'm already wary of it being not on the up and up, so I doubt I'll proceed. But, it's good information to have if I come up with another one.

he was probably trying to register the endro for the street. I would just be up front with the guy and tell him you want to run the VIN number and make sure it checks out. If it is on the up and up...he shouldn't have a problem.

I wouldn't worry too much about there not being a title in the guys name. ATVs and dirtbikes are notorious for being sold and traded with out the title work being done....just passing along the MSO/bill of sale/title to the next owner without ever bothering to actually register it...which costs all of $33.00. Run the VIN and check to make sure it's not stolen or has a lien on it.

No vin or registration needed for OHV stickers.

I assume you've already checked Kelly Blue Book or somewhere similar to see what the going price should be on that particular make and model....to make sure you get the better end of the deal.

Thanks Laura.

Nah, honestly I havn't worried about who comes out better in the deal. I'm getting out of trucks, and an ATV would be nice to have at any number of GScout and BScout camps, down at the ranch, and at the lake. So long as it's not a chinese bike, and it doesn't smoke for days, I'll be happy with the trade. I'd also take a generator, a small enclosed trailer (for my Gscouts to sell cookies out of), or fishing/boating gear.

I still love my 4 wheel drive, but I'm just not "wild" enough to try and crawl up stuff I guess. As long as I can get through the mud hole to my next fishing spot, or drag my tent to the top of a dirt road hill, I've got it "built" enough . I still enjoy watching though, so I'm gonna stick around...

873/4ton just gettin started
hey bud just to let you know i have 2 90s model dirt bikes neither had titles when i got them so i put them on a trailer and took them down to the dmv the came out and did a ncic on them and my titles should be in any day coast me $50 to file for the titles and $35 and some change to register them,the only reason i did it is if they get stolen from you you have some way of showing ownership otherwise you get stuck like my little bro and the cops say you have no way to prove that its yours and we have a hand written bill of sale for his 4wheeler

Titles are a moot point on older ATVs. Actually, Ive never even HEARD of a title for anything till the mid 90's. If its older than that, dont sweat it.
