How do you run a VIN number on a dirt bike?

The VIN location is generally the same for motorcycles and dirt bikes - on the steering neck - though some are located on the motor near the bottom of the cylinders. Turn the handlebars to the left and look on the right side of the frame where the steering head goes through the frame.

Do dirt bikes come with title?

Titles for dirt bikes are a form proof of legal ownership. They are not very common in the sale of dirt bikes, especially in the sale of older models, but having the title can be valuable.

Registering the vehicle, or titling it if no title exists, rests upon having a clean bill of sale. Further, until registering the motorcycle with your state Department of Motor Vehicles, the bill of sale acts as both title and registration. There's no official form for a bill of sale.

Not really. Dirt bikes can't be ridden on the road so no need for registration (aka plate). Dual sport (road legal) have to be registered to though (if you wish to ride on the road).

How can I get a new title without the old one?

First, the easy one. If you lose the Certificate of Title to the car you own now–and it was titled to you–most states allow you to simply apply for a replacement title from your secretary of state or DMV. Show some documentation that the car is titled to you, pay a fee and you'll get the new title.

Do you need a title for an old motorcycle?

Some states don't require titles for older motorcycles. In those cases, a bill of sale, an old registration document, or a special form will serve as proof of ownership. If that doesn't work and you really want to make sure, you can try contacting your state's DMV or local law enforcement where you're buying the bike.
