Get the bike registered in your name. In Florida you have to register a vehicle in your name (no matter how much longer the plates are good for) within like 10 days.. Cali is probably the same..
Is the VIN stamp on the frame (between the forks) look tampered with at all?
DO NOT leave your bike with them at all. Something I learned carrying a pilot license, never surrender anything to authorities. Once you willingly give possession to them, good luck getting it back and God knows what they're going to do with it once they have posession of it.
If you do take it in on Tuesday ask them:
1) what they plan to do with the bike
2) Why they cannot complete the search in one day
3) if they want to hold it for processing or whatever BS reason, make an appointment so you can wait for it.
DO NOT surrender your keys for any reason man! This sounds fishy as ****, and with the registration mishap you're pretty much setting yourself up for a headache. I hope you learn from this and do more research on laws next time you purchase a vehicle.. ALWAYS immediately title and register the vehicle in your name.

Reason: Vin does look sketchy, but still.. Don't give it up unless they come at you with paperwork
