    Two cycle bike insurance

    Forum Sponsor
    Hey guys, I'm going to look at an 1983 RZ350 tomorrow (always wanted a 2 cycle for zooming about). I was just wondering if 2 cycle bikes are frowned upon by the insurance co's. If I remember right, a few decades back 2 cycle bikes (and turbo's) typically got raped by insurance co's.

    I have an 82 RD350LC with Dalton Timmis and pay about $325/year. Insured with them because of it's age. They did not care that it was a 2 stroke. Most likely have no clue the difference.

    I had a Yamaha dt 200 insured threw riders plus. The topic of 2 stroke never came up.

    Nope. I rode a TS200R for years, that thing kicked the snot out of KLR and XR 650s. It cost less then my replacement TW200 which is marginally more exhilarating than a 10-speed.

    I have 3 two stroke bikes on the road and insured.
    1 with Co-operators and 2 with TD. In fact, if you can access the TD on-line quote tool, I think the rz350 is in the drop down list of bikes. Cheap to insure now.


    Fun bike, well sorted ones can be fast too!
