    I recently passed my restricted test and want to get a Yamaha XJ600.. Is it the same price to insure a restricted bike and a non-restricted bike? And how do you tell gocompare/mcn that its restricted? Because I cant find restrictions under the modifications?
    Thankssss

    Stupidly it's the same price...

    Whenever i do it online i don't mention it but when i have mentioned it on the phone to insurance companies they say it doesn't matter...

    They should be able to work out if you're restricted by when you did your test/age etc.

    its normally the same price, get a quote without stating the restriction, then just ring the company on the phone and tell them its restricted, in accordance with your license

    I did the same thing with my bike. I passed on an rs 125, then got that de-restricted, and about a month after insured a restricted(33bhp) triumph speed four. There's no option on the online sites as i dont think they take into account that its restricted, they just insure it as a full power bike price wise but obviously state on the insurance doc that its restricted.
