Mods to Harley with a “type x” vehicle reg and MFK.

Hi All

First post: I’ve searched these threads and I have not found an answer to my specific question. I fear I may have messed up seriously;

Long story short: after extensive talks with a reputable bike shop that does all sorts of modifications, I cut my rear fender struts - and did a good enough job for Harley Davidson to issue a DTS Certificate - but in issuing this they said that I will face serious issues at the MFK (required within 14 days of cutting the frame) because my Vehicle Registration Certificate is a type X (imported from outside the EU).

In digging some more, I was told by a few other bike shops that it depends on the person conducting the MFK: best case, no mention of it and MFK passed, or worst case, they scrap the bike right there an then!!

With these odds I can’t take a chance. I’ve also been told that different Cantons apply the rules differently.

I’m at a loss really and I know that this is something that I shouldn't attempt myself for fear of having my beloved Harley scrapped.

I need the services of a person who knows the process and who knows how and where this can be fixed. When I lived in Dubai all sorts of “fixers” made a living through specialised assistance - nothing “under the table”as it were, just those who know how to operate within the confines of the system.

Help! Anyone out there?
