YZ 450 recovered!!!! Need an owner.

14 posts in this topic

Posting this in here as well as in "General Forums". Help send these bikes home!!!!

My XR650L was recovered during a search warrent raid in Battlefield, MO. There were other bikes in this guys yard and they are all missing their VIN's. I'm putting feelers out on the web to try and find the owners. These bikes may not have been insured so I think the owners might like them back.The list that I have so far:

An older Suzuki 185 (blue).

A Yamaha YZ450 (blue/white)

Some sort of scooter...I didn't notice the brand (black with an OCC floormat

:D )

If anyone on this board from SW Missouri is missing a bike like these let me know.

What's left of my machine...

31723584-L

This guy just gonna get a slap on the wrist?

Probably. He is already out on bond. I'll bet he's at home having a beer right now. :D

I lost a 99 YZ400 from south central Kansas. Just about to give up hope on it though. Are the engine numbers missing too? If not, Yamaha could probably cross the VIN for you. Hope this helps.

When did you loose the bike? I think the officer said this one was a 450 though. Give me your engine number if you have it and I will pass it on as a maybe.

It was in December of 2003. I will post back with the numbers on it when I get home. Thanks,

What kind of shape was the YZ in? If it was good, I think it might be mine. :D JK Sersiously though, that sucks. At least you were able to recover something. That's a lot more than most people ever see again. Good luck on your quest to find the owners.

:D Somebody needs to put a bike on a stand, crank it, put it in 3rd gear and open the throttle, then grind his balls off with the knobby tire.

If you used an ice racing tire, it'd be a lot more messy and painful. Sure make you think twice about doing that again...

Sorry it took so long, I had to locate my title. The engine number is H308E002726. Thanks for checking anyway. I appreciate it.

I heard the state police can forensically get the vin even after its ground off by acid etching or x-rays.

Grinding off the vin is a crime in itself

This is true, however it is also expensive. Not something that is really brought into play for theft cases I wouldn't think unless something more serious is involved. I'm no expert though.
