Easiest way to get the O.D. of bearings is just remove them from steering head

Update:

I have printed out the paperwork, nada form, and picture of my bike and am about to undergo the Vermont title process.
I'm unsure as to what parts on this form I am supposed to fill out, so hopefully I will get this right the first time.

It takes like 7-10 days to get back, so details to follow. But if this actually works this would be quite exciting, as title less bikes under 300cc around here are dime a dozen.

Does anyone have experience with these?
Now before I get the typical "don't cheap out" "that's eBay Chinese crap"
I get that.
But this is my budget..
So I'm looking for some opinions from anyone that has had experience with these, or has heard anything about them.

You just need to fill out your info, info on the bike, and purchase price. When you send the check, its gotta be for the $44 reg fee and I believe they based my sales tax off the "good" NADA value. I sent the "min sales tax" of $30 and had everything returned to me because they weren't able to use that value. Ended up being about $15 more.

Thanks for the info adventureco, I have to run to the bank tomorrow and actually get checks because I've never used them before. Ha.

If I decide to ditch the stock oil tank and move to premix would there be somewhere I need to block off?
I would really like to make this bike as minimalist as possible, and ditch as much as I can.

I also discovered the PO apparently lost the tank cushions, so as a result he was using a gardening hose, and a crap ton of instant foam to keep the tank down.
Picture doesn't do what I originially found justice...

Did you have to do the notarized bill of sale?

Removing the 'Posi-lube is a bad idea, quite likely the main or big end bearings will suffer.
As for the shocks the build quality has improved a great deal but they really need a re-build and re-gas to work properly.
 Once done they work at least as well as $300.00 shocks.
Budget at least $100 to have them fixed though.
There is someone on here that does them pretty cheap (cheaper than I would do them)

Not notarized, just a completed BOS with yours and sellers info, make model frame # all that good stuff.

They send the plate first and then paper reg and sticker will come about 10 days later.

Thank you everyone for the helpful responses and feedback!

Today I pulled the motor and electricals while I wait for my tires to get mounted so I can truly see the lines and how I may want to do the seat loop, and what I will be wanting to shave from the frame.

Man will I tell you, there had to be an entire mud pie behind the sprocket cover whenever I was removing the drive chain.

When exactly should I expect to see them cash the check?
I mailed it out on Tuesday.
I went ahead and just sent the nada good value even though it isn't in that bracket.
Mailed them a check for 114.50 just to be sure, I just need a title, don't mind spending an extra 30 bucks to make it happen.
Just hate wasting time so I'm afraid I maybe did something wrong since my account isn't showing the check as cashed yet.
