    Not had experience of mce. I'm currently using ebike they were very reasonable about all the mods on the bike but not had a claim with them.

    I was with bennetts on my previous bike and they were very good when it got written off. I probably would have stayed with them but they restrict the number of mods to 3 from what I recall.

    What's the issue with mce mate?

    my last bike was a hayabusa got it insured with 8 years no claims for 241 fully comp then sold the bike 3 weeks later and got the rsv gave them a call to transfer the policy over the office shut at 5pm so had to get a 1 day insurance at 35 to pick my rsv up the next day gave mce a call to transfer over and wanted another 137 said i had a quote of 270 they never even tryed to get the policy down to the 270 i already gave them a deposit of 65 and one months payment of 26 so i said just cancel the policy and they charged my 32 quid to cancel so thats why im on 3party with swinton now i will never give mce insurance another penny they are cheap but the service is lower than a snakes belly lol i would say to every 1 i know to stay away lol

    My insurance is due for renewal in a month. I'll keep your thoughts about mce in mind when I have a look at what's on offer.

    The problem is that it's very difficult to assess the level of service unless you have to deal with them for something simple like a transfer of vehicle or more complex like a claim.

    I really have no idea if ebike are any good. They were prepared to insure my bike with all the mods declared at a reasonable price. Who knows what the service is like when you need something from them?

    I've got a Jap one too.

    I was a bit worried when I first saw the sticker that it might be an import and have restrictions etc. Although being a near decade old bike I realised the value wouldn't really suffer! Obviously the logbook says RSV1000R - what do you insure yours as? The Mille or RSV1000R?

    Mines an R model with Ohlins/OZ/Carbon etc.

    My 2003 RSV has the JJ sticker and the logbook shows RSV1000R but it's clearly (originally) a Mille made for the japanese market. As far as I know all the other JJ RSVs we've 'found' have the same logbook model name. Mine is insured as a Mille with 10 modifications.

    I have a feeling it depends on the insurer: 41 with 12 years no claims: Master Quote (who I have used for years 295), Bennetts 95. Master Quote couldn't tell me why they were so much more expensive this time around??

    Robroy - I know how you feel mate. When I picked mine up, Its didnt ride straight, it didnt want to turn right and fell in left, the brakes juddered at the front to frightening degree, and it didnt seem anywhere as hard pulling as a standard RSV id test rode a few weeks before (even though mines a Haga rep with the Twin akra full system and performance chip, so should have been quicker!)
    I felt slightly let down.

    I`v had R1`s and R6`s before and ridden most things but still...
    Kept hitting the limiter in every gear and locking the wheel on corner entry.

    But it had character, and looked and sounded awesome.
    So I stuck with it.
    The funny steering was a de profiled front tire.
    the reluctant feeling was the rear being out of alignment on the chain adjusters, and a squared off rear tire.
    The lack of pull was because a previous owner had added a tooth the front sprocket to calm it down
    And the juddering at the front was siezed disc bobbins that took 45 mins and two cups of tea to clean and free up!

    Now I have an awesome sounding, uncommon, exotic italian beast that sounds like thunder, rides like its on rails and wheelies like it was designed to shoot down helicopters! Dont let the last owners lack of respect for what he had make you miss out on one of the most unique, well balanced sportbikes ever made

    Stick with it mate, i`v owned and ridden alot of bikes but this ones a keeper for the collection.
    Get some fresh pirellis on it (had a diablo 190 when I bought it and had plenty of chain clearance)
    I now have 180/55 scrubs on it just because thats what I had kicking about. 80quid on ebay, if your an aggresive rider give them a shot, else try them new corsa rossos, my mates confidence went through the roof when he stuck them on his ducati.
    Good Luck!

    my big problem is the hayabusa is the bike i love but the rsv has been a bike ive wanted for a few years to have im glad ive got 1 but my problem is the bussa is the ultimate bike and nothing can compare it the rsv feels its not mad enough it feels like a kitten to me its just a bit hard going down to the rsv with limited revs and lack of power well i need to change my riding style to make me feel apart of the bike i think thats my problem some people say its a mad bike but an easy bike to ride i think i need play about a lot more next year and see how things are
