LTA Check and Inspection for Aftermarket Exhaust prior to sale


Recommended Posts

Hey guys, just would like to enquire regarding a certain topic. Basically, I have made an agreement with a shop for a 2nd-hand bike that I am interested in. This bike contains an aftermarket exhaust and I was told beforehand that it comes with an official certificate to show the validity of it to be used on the streets of Singapore.

Fast forward to the day of collection, I was called and informed that I wasn't able to collect the bike due to the certificate issues. The shop claimed that they couldn't get hold of the certificate (I assumed they misplaced/lost the document) and I can only settle everything and collect the bike after it has been sent to LTA for inspection and check which takes about 2 weeks.

So my question is, is there such procedure and shouldn't the shop be more aware of this especially after me signing documents few days prior? They told me they didn't know about this until the day of transfer and I felt that it's so unprofessional and incompetent of the shop to treat me as such. Now, I am just waiting for updates.

Riding kakis, please advise me on this procedure if any of you have encountered such situations. My gut feeling tells me that this deal may fall apart and I'm just wasting my time with this bike. But benefit of the doubt, I hope there are such incidences before this that you all can share with me. 

Thanks all and have a blessed one!

just my 2cents of advise.

1) which bike and did you see any of your bike with this exhaust?

2) Inspection centre could have fail it because of the company of the exhaust no longer exist and etc

3) 2 weeks seems abit long.. I believe they are doing recertification for you.. that means previous owner did not pass the cert to them. if previous owner did pass the cert to them, it will tag on to the bike and easily transferred to you.. But might cost you about 100 thus I believe they are absorbing that for you also.. 

 

Personally, I would ask them if it could be speed up or not since you already signed the document and etc.. (don't use harsh tones la) Use pleasing tone.. haha..

Kindly read thru at least the intro section first before decide to post any comments.... thanks... :cool:

 

Please proceed to this website/web link if you guys have any technical issues on Kawasaki Kips/KR150, I'll update the 1st POST as and when there's a new question. Newbies questions on the top as well. :)
