Good news!! Glad to hear, hopefully he's there for a little while! So what happens now with your "found" bike? (Since you've already replaced them). I'm hoping the "scumbag" was someone who you didn't know and not a supposed friend?
Well I wanted to buy it back but the insurance told me on stolen atvs they send to auction and you have to be a dealer to bid. They also added for example if it was to fall off the trailer I could buy it back though. Oh well.... I come out with the 29.5 outlaw tires and itp wheels and ammo boxes.
About 18 months ago when I was looking for a cat I found one in Denver paper. They were stolen from a dealer in Oregon and brought to Denver. Seller advertised only one but they were two alike. I asked the seller about the warranty and he did not know so when I test rode the bike I got the serial number and called Arctic cat about warranty; and they told me that the ATV was stolen. I called the local police and the bikes were recovered. That is when I learned that he had two bikes.
If you have a stolen ATV let the manufacture know. They will keep track of the serial number for warranty work or any kind of work when the dealer sends the serial number in. :thumbsup:
