I can trump all the above responses by saying ITS worked in...CALIFORNIA!
Used it once. No problems at all.
I'm not sure about TX, but here in CA we do a lot of restoring of our uncles' and grandpas' bikes. Of course, our uncles and grandpas always misplace the titles to their machines. But as good nephews and grandsons, we overlook that and rebuild the bikes in their memories. So when we go to the DMV to request a replacement for the lost titles...the titles that our uncles or grandpas lost years ago before we rebuilt the bikes...things seem to go smoothly.
