2001 Kawasaki 750n - Titling issuees
I bought my 750n this past August. When I bought it, I was told by the owner that they had to dig up the title. That they would look for it, then provide it for me that evening. My mistake was to trust them, and I didn't insist on it on the spot BEFORE I handed them the money. Then I was told they had to call the bank to remove the lien (supposedly already paid for). Then a few days ago, the seller asked for my help in figuring out what needed to be done (I used to work for a bank). I went into the DMV, the lady there called their bank, found out that bank didn't even have the info on it anymore, and it had be transferred to another bank. I was told by the DMV lady that the seller just needed to call the 2nd bank, and request a release of lien, and have it sent to the DMV. Again, assuming they did pay it off. I haven't heard from the seller in a week, and honestly I'm not holding my breath that these guys are going to do anything about it.
Now for my questions:
Would it be legal to buy a titled frame, then move everything onto the new frame?
What's the best, safest way to accomplish this?
I have a 2001 750n, are there specific years for a frame I need to look for?
I know about the stator, and r/r, and I'm definitely planning on moving those. Are there any other modifications I should be planning on?
