Test is easy, take the MSF class though. Good hands on stuff in a safe environment with good instruction over the basic things that could more then likely save your life.

Talk to Pete on this forum. He's a sponsor, but also has the cheapest insurance I found BY FAR. Killed everyone elses rates. Also, it's State farm, not some no name company you've never heard of. I'm renewing my insurance tomorrow with them.

If you finance through Suzuki HSBC they don't require full coverage. This is something to consider and prob. will consider after you get the full-coverage quote.

Also, you can use HSBC financing to finance other bikes - not strictly limited to Suzuki

Tell 'em Patrick sent you.
I called both dealerships when I was looking for my 6R in march. Clear Lake Kawasaki was almost 1k cheaper, but IMHO, their service department isn't anything brag about at all. I'm actually thinking of lemon lawing my bike because they can't seem to get parts in. My bike seems to be in there a minimum of 1 month every time it's there(for the same problems) Misdiagnosis that costs me over $200, and I've been lied to about when they ordered parts. I've actually had to call Kawasaki and complain the last two times.:BangHead:

Full coverage for me wasn't bad at all. I'm 23, no real problems on my record, and it was around $100/mo. for a 2006 ZX-636R. This covers the bike, gear, and mods. Everyone else wanted 6k+ a year.

Also, if the amount financed is less than 10K, I don't believe you have to have full coverage.

Wow has anyone else heard that if the amount financed is less than 10K, I don't believe you have to have full coverage. The bike Im interested in is only 7300 after TTL BRAND NEW.......I assumed since I had a not on it they would require me to have FULL COVERAGE on it like a car and ROB ME BLIND ON IT. Also my Kawasaki card was approved for 5k.....which is what Im gonna put the bike on and just pay the 2k plus difference of and I know that Kawasaki is going through HSBC as well for financing..........thoughts?

Whew! I sure am glad I'm not in that age bracket any more.
I paid 260 bux for a full year of FULL COVERAGE +!
Paid it all up front and done with it till next July
Progressive Ins.

Yeah, I'll be out of it in a year and a half. I have my car through Progressive, and they were one of the ones that wanted 6K a year.

I completely understand why my age bracket has crazy rates though, and even still, 100/mo. isn't too bad in my eyes for everything it covers.

limited Liability on my busa was like $215/yr from Geico. I was 26 when I got the policy, and I have a pretty good sheet of driving violations, but nothing on my record since I was 22 or 23. Geico wanted like $4400 a year for full coverage.

, Jrock, $260 a year is pretty nice! What's your deductible?
