Bike registration

OK, I just bought my bike and the prev. owner took the plate. When I get the title transfered will they give me a paper plate or what. Also do i have to show proof of inspection to register or does that come later?

They should give you a temp plate unless they still give them on the spot? Also you will need proof of insurance and Form 130-U completed

Never had to show proof of inspection to transfer , I think its 12.50 or 14.50 though, Find a local dealer or any inspection station They check the horn, blinkers etc.. They don't ride the bike.

You only need to get it inspected if the bike was previously registered out of state. If it was, be sure to tell the inspector so you can get the required form. Previous owner should have left the plate on the bike, now you'll have to buy another.

Its the sellers choice to keep the plate, Perfectly legal. They don't cost anyways, I think my custom plate was 40bucks so i would guess a regular one is 10 bucks.

Never said it was illegal, just lame. Good idea for saving yourself from liability, but sucks for the buyer.
