Title for WR
Posted April 16, 2005 - 08:14 PM
Thats my question: what does the WR have for a title? I know if it's plated it has a regular DMV title, but what if it's not plated? My ATV doesn't have one and I imagine an ATV is similar to a dirt bike without a plate.

Roger, your bike should have an offroad title. I don't know how it works in CO but I'm sure you must have an offroad sticker and title that goes with it..
Not every place is as over regulated as California. Believe it or not, some states don't require registration, title, sticker or anything for off highway vehicles. I checked Colorado's Motor Vehicles website and found no mention of OHV's whatsoever. There must be some way to "legalize" ownership of an OHV though, check with the motor vehicles dept. to be sure. Sooner or later they'll find a way use your OHV to pick your pocket. You will be assimilated, resistance is futile...

One of our brilliant lawmakers tried for a shameless monygrab this session and wanted to title all of the bikes, quads and sleds and hijack the $ to CDOT instead of the way our offroad sticker funds are currently used. Bad plan. I fear it will be another of those "Phoenix" bills doomed to rise from its own ashes every year.
Currently you can title your scoot in CO if you so desire. Check the CO DMV website for the required equipment list and the affadavit. Oh, and if you choose to title it; have your sales tax receipt in hand or be prepared to pay sales tax again!

I'm not sure I'll plate it here (at least right away) so the MSO isn't a big thing to me. The "offroad sticker" registration like on my quad, is more important (and probably more revealing) than the MSO to me.
Thanks for your input guys,

Go to the CO DMV website and search for forms:
DR 2087 (VIN Verification - any dealer will do this for free & provide the form)
DR 2686 (Cert of Equipment Compliance - just fill it out & sign to acknowledge that your bike complies with the minimum requirements)
If you bring these in to a DMV office with the MSO (Manufacturers Certificate of Origin) and the bill of sale from the person you purchsed it from they can complete the paperwork and apply for a street legal title on the bike.
This is what I was told by a person in Larimer County. I'm in Longmont but couldn't find any useful info on titling a dirtbike on their website. Regardless, I'll try to register in Longmont, and if they shoot me down, I'll take a spin up to Ft. Collins and get them to issue me a title.
Let me know how it goes if you get around to doing it. I've got all my paperwork, just need to make the time to go to the DMV & see what happens.
