i got a title for my 50. i know i need to register it and pay the taxes, get a plate along with headlight / tailight, and then insurance. would anyone mind telling us how much ins. they pay for their street legal 50? i guess total cost of 'street legalizing' would also be helpful. eventually i'd like to make it street legal =)

I called TXDOT and they said the bike is worth $350 and they mutliply it by 1.50 which brings it to $525, then I have to get a surety bond which will be about $140 then go to the Tax Asessor to get my title, I guess that's where the $525 comes into play, but I heard someone say progressive is like $75/yr but when I talked to Geico about adding my 50 they said they couldn't do it but to look up an insurance broker about it. Anyone know where to get a cheap prewound stator? stubbs has a brand new one for 99 which dont seem too expensive
