I'm trying to buy a 2001 yz426 supermoto conversion bike from the USA. I have been told by the first icbc rep that as long as the title says street bike you can register and insure in BC. *I called again just to make sure, and the second icbc rep told me absolutely not! The second rep told me cause it was originally a dirt bike, they won't insure it as a street bike.*I've always had a street bike, and don't know much about this subject, though I have done some digging and I feel that there could be a grey area that may be icbc would allow it. The vin doesn't have "RUM" and as stated before the title is street bike.*Any thoughts?Thanks*

Worst case scenario would it be insured as a dirt bike? *Thanks for the input everyone.*
no worst case, is that you pay for insurance, get in to a significant accident, and then find out that your policy was never valid and now you're civilly responsible for 100s of thousands of dollars of medical and related expenses.

I'm an idiot, of course! Thank you Bartender
