TITLE Transfer Question. Please Help !!!

I just sold my old gsx-R and looking to Buy this YAMAHA r6, looks and rides nice but has New Jersey plates! Guy said, he was deployed to Iraq and never got the title transfered under his name and his wife lost the title during the move.

He provided me the VIN# (if anyone have the luxury to check if its stolen. Please message me) and is willing to give me a NOTARIZED Sale Receipt. and mentioned to pay the BOND of 300 incase of getting the title transfered over to my name.

How do i do this? i am willing to purchase this bike as early as tomorrow. Please Help and its much appreciated.

just go to the place where you generally get your vehicle registration done. give them the VIN number, they can tell you if it is stolen and if you are lucky and get a real nice lady to work with she will help you get around that hiccup you are having regarding the previous owner.

i had that same issue when i purchaced my bike... title has my name on it now

i would steer clear of this bike. dont jump on it until you do all the research.

i want to say a bond for a title is MUCH more expensive than $300. sounds like a load of BS he is spitting just to offload the bike. i could be wrong, but again, do the research BEFORE you fork over money, or you could be screwed. for all you know it could still have liens on it from the financing company as well.

you could also be getting scammed. if someone else has the actual title, they can come and pick up the bike. you cant call the cops because his title is FAR more proof than a bill of sale from a person who is not even the legal owner.

tell him that HE needs to go through all the hassle of getting the title straight and in his name. this is HIS responsibility to fix, not yours. most likely he will just sell it to some sucker though.

also...think about what kind of person he is. if he cant keep his title work straight, what makes you think he is any more organized as far as doing proper maintenance and such?

if the guy really wants to work with you...he will go with you to the registration office and let you keep your money until they tell you all the paperwork is Kosher. you can get the paperwork done and settled and hand him the cash then and there. if he isnt willing to do that, WALK AWAY!

"im deployed" is a line often used by scammers. i wouldn't gamble a few thousand on a vehicle without a title in the owners hand ready to sign over with form 130. be careful; hopefully you wont get screwed over royally.

You dont want the title headache.. You will have to keep going over to this guy to sign papers over and over.. Its a big nightmare. Not to mention if you find out its got a lein or other title issues.

This is true because I recently went through the same thing after building my bike which was salvaged then when I went to register it found out there were some problems with the title so i had to get a bonded title which costed me $625

Give it up slick! you dont wanna mess with this ...
the price is good - and the bike looks clean... but like everyone else said.. the title hassle is JUST NOT WORTH IT.

post the details of the bike if you'd like - i bet most of the guys on here will tell you its not worth it.

I'm not sure about bringing it from another state but I just went through this with a trailer. If the last person didn't register it then YOU have to pay their sales tax (I doubt they will offer to pay them once the deal is done).

There are probably 500 Yamaha R6s for sale within 200 miles of here. What are you thinking?

again, for a bonded title in Texas, the vehicle had to be last titled in Texas.

you might be able to track down the "titled owner" from a VIN search and have them file for a lost title. Then you can just do the regular title transfer of an out of state vehicle (requires state inspection) and the regular DMV trip.

is there any liens on the bike? have you run the VIN yet to check?

And again, for a bonded title in Texas, the vehicle had to be last titled in Texas. One more time for the people at home, for a bonded title in Texas, the vehicle had to be last titled in Texas.

You can go down to the DMV and ask them what to do or get a hold of a title company but my guess is the New Jersey DMV is going to have to be involved at some point. I know the money is burning a hole in your pocket but an 04 R6 with low miles for $4k is about the easiest deal to find. Be patient and find another one.

Not the best deal in the world...

I got an 07 R6 for a little more than $3700.

Just look around for something local with title, the few hundred you may save will end up costing you more time and money...
