Throttle Body - Insurance - HELP

  Suzuki SV1000S

Ok guys getting closer to the TB conversion, But as we all know insurance comps are w**kers about this stuff.

My insurance company wont insure me with the conversion as they dont know what it is (Admiral / Elephant)

Has anyone got any advise on which comp. to use - Am based in Central London

try HIC

they didnt know what my de-cat was but allowed it at no extra charge lol

number is in interior section in the insurance list

try LiverpoolVictoria, thats who I was with and, as I proved, they will payout properly for a writeoff with mods

Just put it down as a fancy induction kit!!!! Kinda is in a complicated manner.

We cannot insure:

Motor cycles, vans, pick ups, minibuses.

Cars which have not been manufactured for the UK market e.g. Japanese imports.

Cars which have performance enhancing modifications.

Cars which are used abroad for more than 180 consecutive days.

Cars which are in excess of £100,000 in value.

Cars that are registered and normally kept outside of mainland United Kingdom,
the Isle of Man and the Channel Islands.

Drivers outside the age range of 17 and 79.

Goerge, have you phoned them and talked to them? also how old are you? as that makes a difference to them to.... dont go on what they say on the website, and if they say they wouldnt cover you first time on the phone, ring again and get someone who really knows what theyre on about.... theres one lad whos visited this site before who works up there... so there are some that are knowledgable LoL

HIC used to be good with mods, dunno about now tho....

Greenlight dont charge for modifications iirc...

- I want mine to pay out if I crash - Also it is classed as fraud and you can be taken to court if found out mate!
  Audi A6 (S3 on order)

I think theyd struggle to take me to court for what I am doing.

Not paying out is a possibility, but its a risk I am willing to take as its saved me so much over the years.

Used to lie about my no claims too, nobody ever asked for proof.

I hate insurance, so I will avoid giving them money whenever I can.

Ive used Flux for the last 6 years. My Clio Turbo is currently insured, ALL mods declared, fully comp for £700 a year. Liverpool Victoria are the ones that are supposed to be good for mods and problem cases...well they insured my dad and he crashes 2 or 3 times a year LOL

HIC is more! - So guess I just to have to wait for GDI (andy) to get back to me to see if he is more competitive or not..
