20-Apr-2012 Update on registration problems
I contacted another Service Ontario office and explained the issues with registering the XU. They took my name and the VIN and told me they would call back with some information. About 20 minutes later the clerk called back and informed me that the VIN checks out okay, so she called the "hotline" and gave them the VIN, then she was told that they already knew about the situation and were verifying the NVIS and status of the bike with respect to Transport Canada and MOT standards etc. The clerk at the 2nd Service Ontario office told me I could expect a response in 5-10 business days.
