Ok guys, here it is.
I have a 1988 Honda XBR500 in black, all ready for its mot. I am on an a2 licence, so the 44bhp XBR needs to be restricted to 33bhp.
Went down to the mot place to ask if they would restrict it, the guy in charge said he is confident the bike won't even exceed 33bhp on the dyno test, mostly because of its age.
The dyno test is going to cost £20, and if the bike does produce over 33bhp even if its just over, I will need a restriction kit put in... £200 including vat. The dyno test comes with a certificate.
If the bike does produce less than 33bhp, do I need to prove it to the insurance company or can I just ride it?
In the event of a claim, they will see that the bike is 44bhp, so they will want to make sure it's restricted. I have asked the insurance company if in the event of a claim, they will accept the certificate as proof or not, still waiting to find out.
Has anyone ever been in a situation like this? Or have any advice?
