So I bought a bike 2 months ago it's a 2005 suzuki savage 650 and It came with a bill of sale but what the seller didn't tell me was that it had not been registered in years and was originally purchased in Florida so now to get a tag for it i need to get a bonded title which isn't really a problem but i need florida to send me over a letter saying its hasn't been stolen and what not. It doesn't matter if I get that letter or if they tell me they wont I just need them to send me something saying either one so I can get a tag for it. The problem is i want to know if there is any way i can get them to speed up the process since they are slow as hell and haven't heard anything back from them, Thanks.

Not sure how it is in Florida, but here in michigan I had to get a form which basically said that the vin on the title matched the bike, then I got an officer to sign that. I then had to take it to the dmv to make sure it wasnt stolen. I'd imagine that Florida has something simmilar to the system in Mi

I have done that with the cop but I live in Georgia and bought it from a guy who purchased it in florida and it hasn't been registered or tagged in years

You will most likely have to go back to florida then. I think in most cases you have to have the title in your name in order to convert it to another state

Some times paper work in Florida gets jammed up in the machines with hanging chads. ?

You said it came with a bill of sale - there should also have been the original title. It doesn't matter how long it has been unregistered if you have the title. You may have to jump through a lot of hoops to get a clear title. I hope it all works out for the best for you.
