3 Answers. In the case of a vehicle with a lien,there is a specific place on the title to have a lien holderlisted, and the holder of the lien will also hold the titleuntil the lien is cleared. Usually this means you have topay off the loan when you purchase the vehicle.
Also Know, how do I find out if my motorcycle has a lien on it? You can check the status of the lienonline at the DMV website. You must enter the VIN, model year andmake of the vehicle to check the status of thelien.

You won't be able to sell yourmotorcycle until the lien is removed, so your firststep should be finding out how much you owe on your loan.You may be able to determine your remaining loan balancefrom a loan statement, but calling your lender directly is the bestway to be sure you have the right number.

Vehicles "under" $4000 and boat under $1500,approximately 35 days. Vehicles "over" $4000 and boat over $1500,usually 90 to 120 days.
