Post any way to check the bike history?

Hi,
I am looking to pick up a bike and was wondering if there is any way to check the history of a bike like carfax does for cars? Also, any other tips would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Nikhil

Carfax does check motorcycles as well as autos. I got it when I was looking for a bike. It costs 25 bux for 30 days with unlimited use.

It can't tell all the details, sometimes it can't even state what miles or the last recorded miles are. Carfax can tell if it's a clean or salvage title, number of owners, and if the bike has passed or failed emissions in the past, but that's about it.

It did it's job for me, and I think it's well worth it if your searching the net for a bike. You can catch scammers in their lies by checking carfax.
