Hi NR, Looking for some (hopeful) first hand experience with this issue I had today. Long story short, got a RWC for my bike, took to VicRoads in Carlton today and the inspector denied registration due to the VIN number being a sticker as 'anyone can peel them off' (see attached photo - VicRoads inspector only sighted this blue VIN sticker thing). Apparently this is a new regulation introduced several years ago and he said the RWC people should have known this. He said the VIN must be either; - Stamped into the frame, or - Attached to frame via tamper-proof rivets. Spoke to the shop I got the RWC and they have never heard of this requirement. Spoke to Peter Stevens, who apparently may have imported the bike original, just to ask what they think of it as I imagined they still import bikes...guy I spoke to also never heard of this and they use stickers as well. Has anyone registered a grey import motorbike recently with a similar VIN sticker/setup as mine??? FYI, in the second attached, is the compliance sticker which I totally forgot about to show the VicRoads inspector at the time(!!!)...would this be sufficient for VicRoads??? MODS: Sorry if this is in the wrong section; didn't know where best to put it.
