New frame help?

So it's been a while sense my last post. Back in September I totaled my 11 450's frame and haven't gotten around to replacing it. I just swapped the frame out for a new one. I can't seem to find the right answer for my scenario. How do I get the same vin on the new frame. My dilemma is I'm still financing my grizzly and don't know what to do. I want to do everything the legal way to prevent impounding or what not. I live in Jersey.

I can only give you a guess. I'm from Canada as well so I'm sure things are different.

I would say that if you are replacing the frame and want to do things legally that you would have to get re-registered as a salvaged title. I don't think it would have any impact on your financing as really all they care about is getting the money.

It may however affect your warranty if you have one, increase your insurance rates, and drop the resale value.

I can't tell you what to do, but I wouldn't bother with any of it. I'd change the frame and keep everything the way it was. Is the serial number even stamped into the frame on our machines? I thought it was just a sticker. If it is you could just swap stickers, even though that's not really legal either.

This information may not be correct. I am mainly going off of how it works if you total a automobile in my province. I would assume an atv would be the same but you never know.

you could stamp the numbers on your new frame but be sure and keep the old frame somewhere so you can prove you replaced it!

Wrong wrong wrong
You will need to cut the serial number off the old frame and have it welded over the new frame numbers.
This is the way frames are switched, I had it done myself when I had to replace my 08 frame for a 12 frame.
Your Grizzly will maintain it's original serial number.

That is the right way, you will retain your original VIN Serial number only the frame will be different.
