"Clear Title" on title

I already sold my 636, but am planning on purchasing another bike pretty soon. I find it fun to just hop around here and there to newer things. I never even looked at the title that came in with my name on it. The only time I opened it was when I was selling the bike.

Is it clearly written on the title that it is a Clean Title? If so, where?

No. Clear title means that the vehicle doesn't have any liens on it. If there's a lien on a vehicle, only the lien holder can sell. Also, no salvage title.

I thought a clean title meant not salvaged or otherwise messed up. and a Clear title meant no liens that's why they say clear and clean title /shrug

Yea, that would probably be a more accurate description. Most people selling seem to use the terms synonymously.

What is so hard about buying and selling a bike with a rebuilt/salvage title?
I had no problems with mine.. plus a lot cheaper than a new bike...

clean title is not salvaged or rebuilt. clear title is no liens or lien has been released. at least that's my understanding, everybody uses those words differently.

lucky! I wouldn't buy one.


1. Bike never been crashed
2. Bike been crashed and torn up and fixed up.

I'd choose 1, even if more, since #2 could have issues that weren't correctly fixed or resolved that could surface and cause more money. It also putting my safety on their word that everythings good to go.... and i won't do that!
