Cambs,

If you have house hold insurance contents policy with accidental cover and personnal item cover you will be able to claim for your helmet, leathers, boots etc on the household policy without messing up your bike insurance.

This is possible, I've had a new helmet and a few mates have had their full kit replaced.

The fila rep is the real deal, Ducati limited edition, the Xerox has no paint on the panels / bodywork at all all decals on carbon fibre.

I had my grey 748s repaired on insurance after a slow off, the new prices are shocking and i dont know how easy it si to match the paint finish.

I know the tank is about 850 as ine was replaced under warranty

each side top and bottom is about 600 nose cone about 350 and seat unit mono near 500

I guess ur not fully comp? may be better to paint it another colour. Sorry to be the bearer of expensive news

Good thing about claiming your riding kit on the house insurance is that most policies are old for new and many house hold insurance companies will go off what ever quote you send in as they know little about leathers, boots etc. As long as the dealer or shop doing the quote says that the kit is like for like the insurance company will go with it.

I know a guy who had an "off". Claimed on the house insurance for his riding kit and ended up with brand new Dainese leathers, gloves, boots and a good helmet. His old kit was not a branded name and was quite old. Cost him 50 excess and about 35 extra on his policy the year after.

I think that is a result.

Sure someone will come along soon and say that it's people like my mate that put's everyones insurance up Blah Blah Blah ... still think it's a good result :P
