REVS check - no info? [qld]

Discussion in 'Politics, Laws, Government & Insurance' started by jisk, Dec 17, 2008.

  1. Hey guys,

    I looked at a bike tonight, a 1990 Suzuki GSF250 imported in 1998.

    When I came home and did a REVS check online, REVS said there was no data available - the VIN number wasn't even in the REVS database.

    Has anyone else had this? I'm not sure what I should do. I'm wondering if there was a typo when the vehicle was previously registered.
  2. Is the bike currently registered?

    I dont think a bike can be registered without a proper vin number so i dont think they would have got it wrong.

    You can ring up for a revs check, that might be best, that way you can ask them what to do.
  3. nothing out of the ordinary there.
    If theres no info theres no info on it being stolen so its all good.
  4. REVS is not a databae of stolen vehicles. Could be a typo/transcription error.
  5. hmm your right.
    either way i used revs about 10 times never gave me anything info not found most of the time.
    Occasionaly t would tell me the make.
