I am going to a large motorcycle swap meet this weekend. I have an unregistered 2009 1125R which I purchased from out of state during the Buell-shutdown fire sale. Thus this bike would be really only a candidate for a track-only bike, part out bike or a source for parts in another project. I looked into trying to get it registered in CA, but I believe original sales tax (never paid) and back registrations for many years would have to be paid. Not 100% on that but the process looked convoluted and expensive (just like most things in CA.)

I was thinking about asking $2k for it and taking the first $1,500 that was offered. I checked ebay for parts and it looks like OEM parts from salvaged bikes are in short supply, but I realize the market for the 1125 is small and shrinking.

Anyone that is more familiar with parting out a bike and/or current market pricing for the 1125s? I would love to get your opinion.

You need a Manufactures Certificate of Origin. With that it starts as a newly sold vehicle. Old registration would disappear. New registration and sales tax would apply. That's my understanding of such.

Think that's actually MSO. Manufacturers Statement of Origin.

I am certain you can get more than $2000 out of it if you take the time to part it out.

Were I still in CA, I'd buy it for $1500 in a heart beat, and taking a run at getting it registered.

I agree with Coastrambler, pretty sure you need the MSO, but who knows you might be alright with what ever paperwork you did get when you bought the bike.

I would encourage you to physicality go down to DMV with all paperwork you do have, and politely asking what could be done. I know it's a massive pain having had spent hours and hours at CA DMV over the years, but you might get pleasantly surprised. I'd volunteer to do it, but I'm 2000+ miles away.

Best of luck in whatever you decide!

I do have the "Certificate of Origin for a Vehicle." I have had other people tell me I can get it registered if I tell the DMV I have lost all the paperwork. Someone said if the VIN isn't in the system, it is a "clean slate."

Coastrambler, you believe sales tax and current year registration fees would be due? Would sales tax be from the original purchase price or an estimated current value as a 13 year old motorcycle?

1) I have the Certificate of Origin. This would be the extent of the paperwork.

2) Never titled in CA, purchased from TX.

3) It currently has about 12,500 miles as I used the license plate from my other 1125R to put on street miles (believing I needed to have a certain number of miles to register in CA).

It is probably too late to so anything for before this week's swap meet, but maybe I get it registered and try to sell in the SPring...

Have never had to actually do this. The state always wants money for something. I've had very pleasant dealings with DMV recently. Also, if you're a AAA member they can give you good info and help.

We have a contact for DMV. According to our contact, there is no "rush" titling, so I am out of luck for this weekend's swap meet. If it doesn't get sold this weekend, then I am going to try to get it titled and try to sell it in the Spring. Titling should add some value. I think I am going to ask $2,500 OBO as it has some aesthetic issues, but still runs like a beast.
