Progressive Motorcycle insurance

Recommended Posts

Have any of you guys made a claim against it? I filled their online forms out on Tuesday and was ready to buy the policy. Basically, I want fire and theft protection. Thats enough. For the hell of it, I added 100.00 deductible comprehensive. The extra amount was only 5.00 per year. Great, I am all set. Bill total 75.00, no problem.

I then started thinking about all of the aftermarket goodies on the bike. I would hate to lost the cost of pipes, forks, etc if the bike was ripped off. I better bump the amount of aftermarket goodies to 2000.00 (was 1000.00). I hit the total button and the premium amount was still 75.00. All the quote sheet did was subtract the extra premium money from the basic insurance and add it right back in on the bottom line.

I wonder if their minimum premium amount is 75.00??? I did not sign up for this because this made mo sence to me. Still, it would be easy to use up 100.00 in parts in a crash....

Here is the link. I woudl love to know if the same thing happens to you guys. http://affinity.progressive.com/entry.asp?url=www.progressive.com&code=8003500067&config=aumcbtrv

You are lucky it's only $75!

My 2005 CFR450 here in California is $150 with mature driver rating and all the other "extras" to make it the cheapest rate.

The combo for me was $100 deductable and $2500 custom parts. Anything over these choices brought the price up slightly.

By the way...thanks for the post. My wife kept reminding me to get coverage and your post prompted me to do it. Whew, I feel better already!

Insuring a dirt bike... never realy gave it much thought...

How many of you have insurance on your trench diggers?

What about having it on a Toy Hawler and the bikes getting taken out of it? are the bikes covered?

Whats it cost (estamate) to insure a CRF450?

Comparing insurance on a trench digger vs a MX bike is way off. My dirt bikes are nicer and worth more money than alot of used cars. No, I am not bragging, if I listed the cars I own that would be bragging.

When I added my '02 CRF450, this was the 4th bike on the policy, the total went up $4. I was told there is a discount at 4 bikes and they wern't kidding.

Chris, I really only wanted theft protection. I was shocked when they were offering collision at such a low price. Seriously, it raised my rate only 5.00 per year or so.

I suppose if I crash and rip up a radiator, this would not be covered!

You are correct ,there minimum premium here in Ohio is $75.00, keep adding stuff on until it goes over the minimum,and do not say that you race it say off road use.

here in MI they wont let you just get theft, have to have the whole deal, cost me $275. Then I found out how hard it would be to get reimbursed for an unregistered canadian bike, so I am now without insurance and crossing my fingers.

Loan companies today request that you insure the bike to protect the loan. Progressive seems to be the only company that will offer the insurance.

I went through HRCA to get the insurance; Progressive claims if the bike goes off a cliff they will repair it. I even told them that this is a competition motorcycle; they replied we know, do you want to pay annually or monthly?

I use allstate and tell them the value of the bike and the VIN number (serial number) on it. Fire, theft, coll. = $107

They know I race so the deal is not covered on a race day as soon as I enter the track. But I am cover for practice, trail riding, having it in the back of my truck, at home, etc.

If you take your paperwork to the sec of state, you can get a title for your bike. I have done it several times. Show them on your original purchase papers where you paid the tax, and you only get charged for the title fee. I think it was $11.

If I crashed my bike and tore off a radiator and bent my bars.....lets say the total repair , with labor, was about 600.00.

Do you really think progressive would pay for this?? If so, I guess were all stupid for not buying the collsion. It sounds as if you could pay the 100,00 deductible and be on your way.

      I just bought a Magura hydraulic clutch for my 2014 CRF450R.  Bought it thinking install would be easy, and I'm not sure that's the case now that I have the product in my hands.  I have searched the forums, YouTube, etc for install help specifically for my model year (2013 and 2014 are same really), and haven't found anything specific for the 2013-2014 model install at all.  Instructions from Magura are TERRIBLE, and are not specific at all to the Honda - generic instructions - so I'm debating if I want to return the product, cuz I don't want trouble or a big install job.  Question: for the 2013-2014 CRF450R install ONLY of a Magura Hymec hydraulic clutch - other model years are different and thus it won't be helpful for other model years - do you have any tips or feedback?  My concerns are below...
      1.  The 2014 model has a sleeve behind the clutch actuation arm that the Magura clutch slave cylinder fits into.  Stock, the sleeve holds one end of the cable, with a nut on the other end to keep the cable end tight in the sleeve.  The Magura slave cylinder, however, slides into the mounting sleeve  - but does NOT have a nut: the tension from the clutch actuation arm pulling on the metal Magura slave cyl tip end is apparently supposed to keep the Magura slave cylinder tight in the mounting sleeve.  Q: Will the Magura slave fit in to the mounting sleeve easily, stay tight, and is there any adjustment needed in order to keep the 4-6mm of freeplay that Magura recommends?  How easy is it to get the Magura slave fitted into the sleeve and the metal tip in place?  Is there enough freeplay between slave and tip end to mount in actuating arm AND the holding sleeve, so that the holding sleeve doesn't need to be unbolted?  
      2. The stock clutch cable and OEM setup runs out of the mounting sleeve (see pics marked "metal starts", and then runs through a metal sleeve that routes the cable through the engine compartment - keeping the cable away from the hot parts of the engine case, so as not to melt the cable insulation (I believe).  That metal sleeve is about 6-8 inches in length.  The Magura clutch cable, on the other hand, exits the Magura slave cylinder at an angle - yet has no such metal routing.  I don't think the OEM metal routing sleeve will accept the Magura cable either, so a) the OEM metal routing sleeve would have to be removed first before installing the Magura - and then b) you have to hope that the Magura cable can be routed in such a way with zip ties holding the hydraulic line that line will not touch or be close to the hot metal engine casing as you route it through the engine.  Q: how easy was it to get the OEM clutch cable and metal routing sleeve out?  Easy as unscrewing the nut on the other end of the OEM cable, on the other side of the black rubber cable flange in my pics?   
      3.  My stock clutch pull isn't bad.  I just like the feel of a hydro clutch.  Any feedback on how much better feeling and easier pull will be with the Magura?  What's your feedback on the difference?  FYI, I'm leaving my clutch plates and springs stock.

      We have a 2016 CRF450R with about 11 hours out. never ridden hard always check the oil and change when needed along with the air filter. Took care of the recall that was required as well. Well when riding the bike was stalled out. Went to try and kick start the bike again. the kick start lever just back up jamming my knee into the handle bars and some how ended up cracking the case right by where the kick start goes through the case. Has any one had this happen or heard of this happening? What is the cause?

      Any advice on what should be replaced while I have the top end off for a valve replacement. Will do headgasket and springs of course, anything other parts you would recommend while I'm going at it?
       
      Thanks!

      The dirtbike is on it's forth year right now on the same motor job. I have to jump start it. Is it worth me trading for a 2009 650 brute force with7000 miles? Need some expert advice. Thanks

      Just wondering what you guys do to remove black marks on your seat. My 08 crf450r has the red/black seat, and after each ride there are some black marks on the red from my riding pants. Not scuff marks, more like patches of black residue from my pants rubbing on the seat. I’ve tried the magic eraser which seemed to do the trick, but lately they seem like they aren’t coming off. Also tried scrubbing bubbles with a brush and no luck. Not too worried cuz I have an spare OEM seat, but I’d like to keep this one nice. Any ideas? Maybe I shouldn’t wear black pants?
