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: Search - Stolen ATV

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

STOLEN ATV - We help find your stolen ATV

Serial number search:

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)

      I have a 2002 Suzuki LT-F500F, and am a first time atv  owner. I rode two wheel bikes for many years, and now, two months in to being a new at owner, am just not enamored with the thumb throttle, and I’m wondering if anyone has tried a conversion to a typical twist grip throttle as found on all motorcycles? If so, how do you like it?

      It Was Back In September of 2005, A Few Smart Thief’s Broke Into My Shed One Late Night Cut The Locks On My Privacy Fence Gates And My Shed While My Dad Was On- Call Working and i was sleeping. they Pushed it Out The yard and either loaded it on a truck or hot wired it. i searched for days through woods, trials, friends houses and i pretty much gave up. I worked all summer to save up to buy me a 4 wheeler and it got stolen right out my shed. i woke up the next morning and noticed all this and almost cried seeing it was gone. i called the police and filed a report and i was just now today going through papers and i noticed i still have the report and the title so i thought id start searching again and keep hoping one day it might just show up but im loosing hope. It Was A 2005 Yamaha Blaster all stock with white plastics and a red frame bike had less then 20 hours on it when it was stolen ive included a photo of a similar bike if anybody knows where my quad might be please turn it in 4103443960 Thanks And God Bless.

      So I’m always looking around on different types of pages on atv’s and new mods etc. lately I’ve been seeing a lot of this radiator mount super high up on the front end.  Some have integrated the snorkel into it as well.  Personally I’m not a fan but wondering what’s everyone’s thoughts on the way it looks?

      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.

      I shot this footage last weekend. We ran a Honda Foreman along the beach and had a great time wakeboarding.

      Went shopping on Saturday, picked up another Kawasaki Bayou 220 and a Yamaha Timber Wolf 250
      I really should sell some of these but they are a lot of fun to find, fix and ride
      Of course neither of them run but that's part of the fun!  Az

      I have a 1988 300 Honda FourTrax, All wheel drive.
      My brother and I were fixing up this quad. We put a brand new battery and fuses in and it was running fine until we put the quad into reverse. As soon as it was put into reverse all of the electrical cut out and power wasn't making it to the head unit anymore and both of the brand new fuses popped. We figured there might have been a short from the starter or solenoids, but they are all working properly. At this point we don't know where to start looking for where the short could be. I'm just wondering if anybody has had the same issue or knows of similar issues that could cause these electrical shorts?
