Im sure they still have it on file if the bike is only 5 or 6 years old.
Well, they did go out of business, and the "store" was in Texas. Their website points to a 1 page parts web site with no help... For all i know the title was never created, shipped in from China, sold, got the money and run.

The crystals were as much at the bike at the time, but they're not worth much anymore due to the economy.

If he purchased the 08 in 07 as an early release model, it's entirely possible if you're just using the yr purchased as a counting point and not being literal.
07-08-09-10-11-12 = 5 yrs.

Put your butt plug back in so you don't have to keep clenching and wasting energy.(as in too anal retentive!)

We put a couple of those "Kikker 5150" Honda clone powered choppers on the street sans plates and we did just that, turning our 110cc motors magically into 49cc to kinda-sorta meet Indiana's motorized bicycle law that didn't allow manual transmissions. My buddy got stopped on his, said it was automatic (showing the officer how it went forward when he turned the throttle, not requiring any shift or clutch work) and managed to get away with it.

Even more work would be to sleeve the cylinder down, find a suitable piston and install it, again marking the cylinder with whatever displacement the new smaller piston makes it. This makes you perfectly legal and might even be a potential business for you converting 49cc scooters into legal 39cc units. Don't count on getting rich doing this.
And you just admitted that on the internet?

Nice comment! With speculators like you who needs enemies. Way to go!
