i was reading all the atv theft posts and it got me thinking. when i got my blaster from the guy who sold it to me, he didnt know a whole lot about what had been done to it and was very eager to get rid of it. where can i type my vin in and see if i have purchased a stolen atv?

I'm not sure there is any resource online for this. You could check with DMV in your state or any insurance agent in your state. Have them run the vin #.

You could check the stolen atv website and search by serial# or type of quad:

I don't know anything about this site, but just did a Google™ search on "stolen atv resource" and came across this:

Here in PA a quick call to the state police is what I would do. They will run the vin for you. If it was stolen they will probably take it. You can be charged with receiving stolen property also but because you started the hunt I doubt that.

Id also call the DMV if you are looking to purchase a ATV and for some reason you thing it is stolen, but do it before you buy it or you will be out money and a ATV. Shoot, if you use google it may not be on there yet, or never be on there, and I guarantee to, if my ATV is stolen, I'll post it here on a ATV site along with pictures, and I would have already been to the Sheriff department.

I had an issue with buying a trailer and all I had to do was call the local sheriff's office and they sent an officer out to the house he ran the vin# to confirm it was not reported stolen. My tag office had a fourm for the officer to fill out since the trailer had to have a tag & be put into my name. Did you get a bill of sell or any thing in writing from the seller? I just bought a nonrunning quad and needed the frame I had the seller to sign a bill of sell with the vin# so I have proof of where and who I got it from and the date.

When i buy or sell a vehicle or anything with an engine the bill of sale has my name adress my drivers license number and vin of product. Same goes for the seller. Then after the price it says paid in full with no warranty. Also the name and place that the transaction took place along with both signatures. This cuts down on alot of problems. Also anyone that would say its too much work or ill fill it oit later i never bought from. Never purchasd a stolen product yet (knock wood)

    • Reading the latest ATV Magazine

      I am reading the latest ATV Magazine issue and they have a section all on Utilitys. I looking it over and seeing some manufacturer changes I wasn't aware of. Like Yamaha has different versions now of its Grizzly - 80, 125, 350, 400, 450, 660, 700 ? What happened to the Bruin, the Kodiak 400 and 450? Suzuki has a King Quad 450 and 700... Yamaha page with all those Grizzlys...http://www.yamaha-motor.com/outdoor/products/lifestylehome/home.aspx I may have to go with that new 700 FI, Power steering... I used to have a Yamaha Kodiak 450 before my King Quad, that's what made me notice this. Also see these Kymco's getting into the picture..

    • SPOT Trace & GEN3 Anti-Theft Tracking Device

      It just sucks when your ATV goes missing and you can't find it, right? Hopefully you just forgot where you parked it! Now if someone took off with your ATV, that's a problem. You may never find it again and it'll be sold to someone with the VIN scraped off and you are out of luck. If it's worth some money you probably insured it, so good job and notify the authorities immediately. However, nowadays with the way mobile and GPS technology works, you can just equip it with a tracker (some newer ATVs are coming with GPS built in) so that if the day comes that someone makes off with it, you'll find your ATV and the thieves! We looked around to see what technology exists out there and found the SPOT Trace! This unit retails for $119.95 and sells for around $99.99 online. We found it on Amazon for $97.99!

    • Thinking of buying a Honda 500 pioneer in the future

      I'm really considering this utv. Before any negative comments about this machine remember I did everything I wanted with a 250 Ozark. My 09 rubicon was over kill. I'll use it for snow plowing bulldozing logging and cruising. So I can spend 8,500 on a ruby or the 500 pioneer.

      If you are looking for a used ATV for sale, where do you look? I know ebay and craigslist have used ATVs for sales and then sometimes you find local trade publications where they list used ATVs. I was looking online and decided to list out some websites that sell used ATVs. If you know of any additional websites or sources to look for or buy used ATVs, please post as a comment in this topic.
      eBay Motors  - usually has a good selection of four wheelers, ATVs, and Side by Sides and offer seller protections
      Craigslist - usually has more local ATVs, but be careful as there are no seller protections
      ATV Trader - has over 130k ATVs listed by private sellers
      ATVSoup.com - new and used ATVs for sale
      WantAdDigest - Shows local listings of ATVs for sale
      ATV.com - List new and used ATVs for sale
      When buying a used ATV, make sure you do your research and find out the book value of the ATV, look over the condition of the ATV, and as for verification of ownership. Be careful who you buy from and get the ATV checked out by a professional dealer or repair shop if you are baying a high price. 
      Watch our for VIN numbers that are scraped off, this is usually a sign that the ATV was stolen.

      I got an ATV from a guy that ran out of time rebuilding an eiger 400. He put a nerma Piston and rings in. I finished it up and it smoked like a train. I took the head off and honed the walls and it looked like the rings where on the walls, but it smokes just as much. I'm confused what's wrong with this thing.
