Didn't mean to strike a nerve here. However, it can raise questions is all we're saying.
Your cars VIN number is on display for all to see. Just look through the windshield for it. So, your car may be more susceptible to be placed in someone else's name more than your bike would ever be and it is worth more, money wise.
As for vehicle inspections to approve a bike for use on public roads. They aren't matching Title to Bike VIN. They really don't care. Just that the bike is road ready and is safe to operate on public roads.
Don't misunderstand. We were merely trying to point out issues you may have created for yourself by blacking out the VIN.
Maybe, we shouldn't have said anything to you about it. After all it isn't our bike. We have no skin in this game. So, it really doesn't concern us. Yamaha was mandated by law to place the VIN sticker where it is for reference purposes. What a person does with it after the bike is sold to them, Yamaha doesn't care what happens to that sticker, nor do we.
Don't take it personal. We weren't trying to offend you.
Hopefully, blacking out the VIN won't create issues for you in the future.
