Re: DRZ experts inside

Dang Mitch, were you scared that old Honda was going to hop out of the trailer? Do you drive that badly?

Jack and I installed a proper bike carrier in his Dodge Ram 3500 today, it lifted my C50 Boulevard like butter. He got the 5000 lb. winch. Lots of fun, took us about 2.5 hrs. And probably 45 minutes or so was us looking up silly stuff on the internet.

Re: DRZ experts inside

I want one! is it all one unit that can be unbolted and put away when not in use? I would guess it is but doesn't hurt to verify.

Yep, the power lead unplugs, and there are 4 bolts holding it in. I think he bought it HERE

Back on DRZ related information ...

Thanks all for the case saver advice.

After a closer inspection of the weekend's "activities", there is a witness mark on the saver from the shifter.

We refer to them as beauty marks. No need to thank me Mitch.

Re: DRZ experts inside

Have everything I need, just haven't made the time.

Recently found out it can be done via mail.

Re: DRZ experts inside

I had a 2001 DRZ400E with a bonded title, but it was already done when I got it. Didn't know how big of a pain it was.

Re: DRZ experts inside

I'll keep an eye on here just in case you ever do sell it. I may be in the market for a bike by then

If I could do it all local, it'd be done.
But it requires going through the regional DMV ... which is Richland Hills for me. Probably Abilene for you.

Not much is worth going to Abilene for

Re: DRZ experts inside

Done the bonded title process twice. It's pretty simple. A little bit of run around and some paperwork, then shop around for the best deal on the bond and turn everything in.

And for those of us living near the edge of the earth, doing it all by mail certainly helps.

Knowing what I know now, I'm not near as spooked by a bike being sold with a BoS only.

As long as I can get the VIN and do a couple title searches and the NICB database to verify it isn't stolen or have liens, its pretty simple.
