Vermont titles

Recommended Posts

Hey All,

I have just discovered this site and I have to say it is excellent. Tons of information!!!

I am looking at purchasing a used WR400/426 to replace my old YZ250. A friend of mine has a '01 YZ426 and I love it, but I would like something more suited to trail riding. Being that I live in a place where there is almost no place to ride (legally, anyway) I intend to put a street kit on the bike if I can't find one that is already done. This will be used for getting from trail to trail, not real street riding (I just dont think a knobby equipped bike is going to carve apexes quite the same :) ).

I looked into the process for getting a street title in PA and it looks pretty simple if the bike is 100% converted. I have also read up on using a vermont title. Below is my interpretation of the Vermont title process. I was hoping I could get some feedback from anyone who has done it or knows more then me as to how close I am with how I think it works or how far off I am.

OK, I have an "off road use only" PA title in my name. I send that to VT for a VT title and registration using my PA address and they simply sned me back a VT title and registration that does not distinguish street or off road use. I then take this new title and transfer it back to a PA title as a street bike since there is no indication that it is an off road bike only. Now I can get my PA registration and find someone to throw an inspection sticker on it. Sounds easy enough.

I also found two conflicting pieces of information. According to a post on this website VT requires a VIN verification by a state official if the bike is over 300cc. According to the VT DOT website that is correct, but for anything over 500cc. Does anyone know where this discrepancy comes from?
