I have a 1998 sporster after about 30 min. of running it slows to a crawl. the rpms on the engine are high, but it will not go. the intake is clear. it's like you put the clutch in on a car while going 60 mph. any suggestions?
I want to share some potential cost savings that might help some of you out in regards to boat insurance. In shopping for boat insurance on our 210 Wake to replace our coverage of our 180 Challenger we compared two companies - Progressive vs. Boat U.S.
I got a quote (see quote attached below) from Progressive which is who we had our 180 Challenger insured with previously, when the quote came back it was a lot higher than I expected. I bumped it up to a $1000 deductible to see how this would affect it, but still that didn't make much difference - it was $1039 per year.
I then decided to get a quote (see quote attached below) from Boat U.S. to see how they compared. To my surprise they were almost half what Progressive was quoting with lot less of a deductible. Their dedectible is typically 1% of the insured value so it made it $450 for our policy. The quote came in at $553 per year which was much better so this is what we went with.
When comparing the two I kept the coverage amounts the same so I would have a "true" comparison in the quotes. Even keeping them the same it seemed that Boat U.S. offered some better options than Progressive. To quote the rep I spoke too he said, "This is what we do - insurance for boats, we don't insure anything else". With this statement I believe he was trying to tell me that while other companies out there offer boat insurance it doesn't mean this is their expertise.
It is worth a shot, if you don't already have Boat U.S. for insurance, get a free quote and see if they can save you any money!
Please let us know if you end up saving any money, we would like to hear about it.
