Engine numbers on bike titles?
i am in the early stages of planning to ship my motorcycle to BuenosAires. I have a DR650 that i put a newer motor in after having to sell the old one to an inmate her. My california bike title has both the engine and VIN numbers on it. The DMV says that they cannot change the title to reflect the new motor number (or do not want to bother with it).
Will this mismatch between the engine numbers cause a problem with customs in Argentina or elsewhere? I know that the VIN number is what they most often look for, but i remember that while crossing Honduras a few years ago, the lady at the customs crosschecked my engine number as well (on a different bike).
Ideas? remedies? Most states do not have the engine number on their titles...
