Odometer Status "E" on WA title

Discussion in 'Motorcycle Talk' started by DerekF, Aug 27, 2011.

  1. Hi all,

    I just received my title from the DOL today. It shows the Odometer miles as 000000 and the Odometer Status as "E". What does the E mean and why would it show as 000000? When I applied for the title, I listed the correct mileage. There are no brands on the bike. If it means anything, the bike previously had an Oregon title.

    Does anybody know what this means? Would the zero mileage have any effect on the future sale (and value) of the vehicle?

  2. Probably stands for Estimate..Is it brand new?

  4. Simply means that your bike must be 10 years old or more and RCW does not require tracking of or recording the mileage. DOL will also not keep track of it, as it would require more manpower to update an otherwise unchanged title (unless you paint the bike a different color).

    E = Exempt - from the mileage requirement.

    My middle name stars w/ a "E" also...
    hence, my acute memory leaped w/ lucidity... tho IBERO ad already displayed impressive lumunosityness.
    Now, if I could only remember how many clicks, of rebound... I added yesterday.

  9. Not only is Mr. Rippn an eloquent user of American verbage
    But he is well familiar with the "E" not only thought his name as he stated - but also through the titles to all his neo and not so neo-vintage collection ... E E E E E E E E E E
    It is obvious we both share the paper love affair with the "E"
    I too have multi-E syndrome . . .

    We may connect sometime and converse as curators of our living "museums"
