Now I am fighting with them about insuring it .. Have 5 bikes insured with them and have had no clams or tickets ect ect in 10+ yrs
get insurance from someone else for it. Liability only on my XR650 was $30 year.

I licensed my XR400r a few years ago... I was advised to register it as an ATV with mostly off-road use. tags are cheep($4.75) but you need a OHV sticker & that is $25. It is insured the same way using the Honda vin#
I'm guessing you have registered it as a Motorcycle and your insurance Co has a issue with that in AZ.
Go to a MVD that is familiar with your circumstances and they should get you insured again.
Good Luck...

Will see what they say , I had to e-mail them pictures of the bike , Told them it was a dual sport / not trail bike only,, Just like a xr650l ...

If they wont insure it , I will pull all 5 of my other bikes off there contract and go elsewhere with my money ..

MVD didnt have a problem at all with it being registered as a street bike so why should the insurance company care where I ride it ... It only cost me 28.00 dollars to get the plate & 2 yr registration .

Thanks for the info Mefadv

What does is cost to get a plate for a motorcycle in AZ? Say a 990 and a 530. Full street plate. Any other fee's or charges they charge like city or county stickers things like that?

Thanks

Registration is 10.75 (+4 for AZ title) plus a vehicle license tax which is a function of age and original purchase price. I have some data having done this recently...

Yr Model List Price / Tax
1982 XJ650 $3099 / 10.00
2001 SV650 $6199 / 12.80
2004 DR650 $4999 / 17.57

$10 is the minimum tax.
Registration cost = $10.75 + $4 (title) + 0.0289*0.6*List Price*(1 - 0.1625*Age)

Off highway sticker is $25 flat.

Fighting with your old company just adds attention to the matter. The goal is a legally plated machine... not winning with some ins company. IMHO

Have 3 bikes with Geico... for $99 per year. Max Liability coverage on all of them.

Did it online in ten minutes for the first one. Five minutes when I added 2 and 3. I am a plated 99% dirt rider. Don't need to wear out valves riding to Walmart. For me Liability-Only just makes sense.

Thanks, that is a lot less than here. Do cars and pickups work the same way?

Yes, but in Maricopa county (Phoenix) they need to pass an emission standard which means another small fee, I think.

(I don't own a car anymore)
