A different dealer issue

I was wondering why it was taking so long for the paperwork to be done for registering my K1200 I bought in FL and I live in TN. Just for the heck of it I did an online VIN check. One digit in the VIN had been transposed on all the paperwork the dealer filled out. What should be a Z had been turned into a 2.
I called the dealer and told them about this. They looked it up in their system and the Z shows on their end. I sent them a picture of several pages of the paperwork I have that shows a 2 not a Z.
They are now in the process of making out all the new paperwork to send to me.
I'm damned glad I did that VIN check.

You did check the actual VIN on the frame, I am sure.

Re: A different dealer issue

When the online VIN check came back as no good. I did indeed go compare what was on the paperwork versus the bike frame.
