    insurance question on an ls1 TA

    i was wondering if anybody knows how much insurance would be for me when and if i get a TA.. im 15 and im fixing to get my liscense here pretty soon..

    the reason im asking is bc i was wanting a 600cc sportbike but insurance on that would be $300+.. i changed my mind to get a 4th gen TA possibly with ws6.. now i beleive we are on state farm with me on a 250 ninja right now paying at around $100 for insurance.. possible numbers for me in a TA would be eccellent.. thanks

    Get yourself a good beater car, learn to drive first and get a few years under your belt before you get a WS.6.

    Kids don't need WS.6's...

    The WS6 is alot higher for insurance than a base TA. Just put the ram air hood on later. It will pay for itself in insuance savings! Just don't get busted doing stupid crap. I just hope you have a good job to pay for it all.

    o thats wat i was wanting to do was buy the regular TA w/o the ws6 on it then add on later.. TAs with the ws6 on it already are more expensive to buy too.. and my step mom and my dad are paying for it. hopefully..

    Unless your parents are going to buy your T/A, just get a peice a junk and save for one. I pay $340 a month w car payments on top of that and with my last wreck im sure my insurance is going to go up some more. (full coverage)

    225 a month is a helluva lot better than 350 a month for a streetbike

    Yes when you check the homeowners box it lowers insurance completely... parents name.

    No one can answer this question. Take 10 people with same record, age etc and come up with way different answers.

    Basically at your age, you would be on your parents policy. Rates are based on age, driving record/experience, where you live (crime rates, particulary stolen vehicle stats) your parents driving history as well as their credit history. There's more actually, but this is enough to give you the picture.

    Chances are, when they get wind of what it's gonna cost, they'll shoot you down unless they're loaded. If you were able to manage to get your own policy, I'd bet your insurance rate would be more than your car payment.

    Young unmarried males are in the highest paying category for insurance premiums based on stats that say this group is the most expensive to insure (in damage payouts as well as crash reports.) Your best bet is to call state farm and ask. If and when you get your own policy, plan to sit down for an afternoon with your friendly yellow pages.

    Make sure you know what your coverages need to be as well as your deductibles, that way you're comparing apples to apples. The higher your deductible, the lower your premium. But remember, the deductible is what you have to pay out of pocket before your insurance pays up.

    Coverages will be different as you age and aquire property, real estate etc. As a young person who owns nothing, minimum state requirements will suffice. Homeowners, on the other hand, need to structure their limits to protect their assets in the event of a judgement against them. If any of this confuses you or creates more questions than answers, do some research on the topic. It will save you thousands over your lifetime.
