Tips for Buying a Used ATV: Title of Ownership
Matt Finley, Licensed to About.com

With the economy in the toilet and people spending less money it makes sense to buy a used ATV instead of a new one, if you know what to look for. And I'm not talking about only the mechanical aspects of it...

Paperwork is paramount. Especially when buying used. No matter what, make sure you get the actual title and don't settle for a simple bill of sale if you decide to buy used.

If you don't have the actual title of ownership, often referred to as a "pink slip" or simply, "the pink", you could face registration problems and even risk having the actual holder of the title claiming ownership.

That could cause a real headache and a lot more money than you anticipated. Make sure you get the title when you buy a used ATV.
