i tried my 2nd attempt to register my 04 today here in CT. - what a fun time. the first time the woman at dmv told me that the seller made a mistake filling out the back of the title and i needed that person (a notary in N.C.) to fill out a letter of correction. the bike came from N.C. - after a couple weeks i got the letter and went today to register, after waiting 2 hours my number was called and the new woman at dmv asked me why i had the letter and told me i didnt need it!!!! she then told me i needed to go thru the inspection line to get a vin verification check. i knew that i had to because my previous bike (954rr)went thru with no problems. i had brought my rc with me in the back of my pickup to save time, i got in line at 12:30 to see that the inspection lane was closed for lunch 12 - 1. at 1:30 the inspector shows up and has me pull forward, i can tell hes in a bad mood, he tells me to unload the bike, i had to get out of line and unload, i push the bike to the back of the line and wait another 30mins, i push the bike up to him and he angrily asked me where all my lights are? he procedes to lecture me on how illegal my bike is and that i have to return it to stock condition to pass the vin verification, everything including the turn signals, reflectors, exhaust, chain guard, brake light and the oem rear fender!!!!!!! "wow" i said, "you couldnt tell me that before i unloaded the bike?", his reply was " did i even look at your motorcycle before you unloaded it?" i asked him " i thought you just needed to verify the vin numbers" his reply was "the vin check is for us to make sure the vehicle is road legal" i asked him " then why is it called a vin check? shouldnt it be called a full inspection?" he didnt like that and started lecturing me again, i had to bite my tongue and not argue with him anymore, because there is only 2 inspection centers in the entire state, pretty good chance i will see him again. I TOOK A DAY OFF FROM WORK TO REGISTER THIS!!! now i will need to buy a set of oem mufflers and chain guard, i have everything else but it needs to be rewired because the previous owner butchered the electrical... i had no problems with my 954, the inspector walked up to my truck and read the vin off the frame sticker and gave my pass - i hope to get the parts soon and maybe 3rd time will be a charm.....
