Is there any way I can do a free vin search for an ATV? I'm looking at buying a frame that I want a title for but don't want to try to register it and it comes up stolen or has a lien on it.

you can go the Kawasaki website and have the VIN transfered to you, it's what I did. You'd basically be saying that you are now the new owner, you print out a transfer of ownership form, send it in to Kawi with a bill of sale and they will send you a 'Transfer of Ownership" document.

In the end it really doesnt matter as the Bill of Sale is your proof of ownership and no ones looking for a 20 year quad.

This actually worked? Cause I have all the legal documentation to register it, but it'd be pretty rad if I can get another form of ownership, especially one as an official kawasaki ownership document.

Yep, glad to scan what they sent me as proof - it took them about 3 weeks to send me an ownership letter.

Guess that came out wrong, meant to say that it's less likely that anything stolen 20 years ago is actively being searched for.

So I call the Kawasaki line - thank for that info and found out my frame based on the vin was reported missing from kawasaki and was supposed to be destroyed as it was a research and prototype.
