Ks checking in. 05 ktm 450 smr. All good, $66 and they are on the way.
Could someone please clarify what is the best route to get a transferable motorcycle title for my dirt bike. I live in the state of Florida and my dirt bike is an 09 CRF450R. I Have the title (Body labeled as MC) that is in my name, a receipt showing i paid sales tax a month and some days ago. I seen that some people are sending in their titles with MC and OHV and getting titles back as the same but still getting a plate, are those transferable? Please help me. Thanks in advance. I dont want to send off my title and only have a month of riding my bike and not being able to transfer it to a florida title.

I think people in general overthink this whole process. You are giving your home state registration fees that they will not otherwise collect if they deny you registration. Just do it.

I had a CRF 450R that was plated in Illinois. Moved to Miami and had no problems getting it plated in FL. Just went right to DMV as if transferring any regularly plated bike. If you already have it plated somewhere else, should be easy. Worst case, if it raises an eyebrow, leave and go to another facility. That's what I had to do in Illinois.
Thanks guys. I went ahead and sent off all the stuff yesterday. Hopefully everything goes good.
Got my plate and registration in today, body type says OFF.
They listed the bike as a 250 EXC-F, which I assume is the 4 stroke model. Also no mileage listed. I'll call when the title comes in and try and get the body type switched, mileage added and the model changed. Doubt they'll do it.. but may as well try.
Hello guys i have a problem with my 2010 yz450, i send my paperwork to sd mso to get it Plated but the lady say i need a bank release.
I explained them the bike is pay off but the problem is the last owner he not around anymore is there something that i can do it about it..
She's still got the dirt wheels on but not for long.
How long after they received the paper work should i expect a call? They got mine this morning? And what do they do, call me or email me first?
IVe gone on a couple short rides. They emailed me first that my paperwork was all good and asked for a payment method.
Including weekend , I got a email from a lady that said that I forgot to write my address next to my name on the notorized page of affidavit, so resent them again today. Hopefully I hear something in a few days
the first post outlines how long it takes for the title to arrive.
the first page of responses outline how long till the tag arrives.
just like any tax accessor office, the workload they have dictates how long it takes to process your application.
i understand a lot of people skip over the first post to try and get the most recent information via instant responses from other members, but the first post gets updated as needed.
if it hasn't been answered in the last four years, i would be surprised.
happy biking :-)
Hopefully didn't miss this in thread search but..
If I've got the original MSO, signed by the original owner and the second owner, notarized with a Lien stamp on it (Lien is paid but no release..) I can pretty much forget about sending that in, right?
I have the original bill of sale from the dealership when the bike was bought new in 2007 written out to the original owner.
With the lien being paid off (no release, though..), the original bill of sale from the dealership, and if I were to ugh, "get" a bill of sale from the original owner to myself, would that be enough to get my request through?
Paid today for my title and plates: $57. The lady said that although I will be receiving plates, it was still going to be listed as "offroad" on the title. She emphasized that it was considered an offroad vehicle that is registered. She wanted me to be aware of that before we proceeded. I wonder if people have been trying to take the SD title to their home state and because of this verbiage, not able to transfer it back with a street legal title like they intended and have been calling the SD dmv back complaining. I don't really plan on trying to transfer the title back to Illinois in hopes they will allow me to register it street legal. There are places all over the country that require the bike to be plated to ride so as long as I have something on the back that is legit, it works for me.
BTW, the lady said that my registration would only be good through June and then I would have to renew already. I guess it's based on the first letter of your last name. Mine being "K." She said it wasn't quite close enough to June to get next years sticker. I should have asked what the renewal fee was.
For me they didn't mention anything about my title being off-road only, i think my bike was already able to be street legal... the body was MC but under ODO it said for of highway use; and i paid $73 for everything. I wonder what was different . And the guy said i was good for a whole year. March of 2018.

So once you do this whole process for plating and registering through SD, do you have to renew your registration through them again or can it be done through your state?
