When I bought my Sachs a couple weeks ago, the transferred registration was an ATV registration. The make was also listed as an abbrevited "MAJ". (It's a Sachs Balboa)
But the VIN lines up with the frame number, etc., etc.
What's the difference (other than my fancy red letters on my plate)? Does it matter?
It was the biggest pain in the ass getting it registered finally because I definitely came on DMV grumpy day. When DMV #1 said no, I simply went to DMV #2 who had no problems. So I didn't want to ask questions, just wanted that coveted plate so I could put it on the road!
