What about this....Fit it forget about it

Use a hex/allen key to unbolt it from the caliper. It would take seconds to do.

Image
From their website

CAN'T THE BOLTS JUST BE REMOVED WHEN THE ROADLOK IS ENGAGED, RENDERING THE BIKE ABLE TO BE ROLLED?
If the bolts are removed and the ROADLOK is detached from the bike while the pin is inserted, the system remains attached to the rotor, thereby preventing rotation. The motorcycle still remains unmovable after the system strikes the brake, caliper or mud guard. It will essentially act like a typical disc lock at this point.

I bought a 14mm Xena alarmed disc lock. An ex bike thief once said (on a forum somewhere) alarmed disc locks were the best deterrent.

It still goes through the disk, so even unbolting the device wouldnt make it rideable.
Personally I'd fill the hex bolts with some sort of filler that could be chipped out with enough time.

Something like that really should be fitted by manufacturers as standard. Relatively cheap and easy for them, whilst far more convenient for riders than carrying around a separate disc lock which mean many never even bother.

No need for reminder cable, they could just use a switch as they do with the stand and clutch so the ignition will not start if the pin is in place.

I do not see how, it is just a pin that finds a hole in the disc to click into. Unbolt the main part from the caliper and what is stopping that pin from sliding out?

If you take the bolts off, the body will just swivel round the pin which can be slid out

It is just a normal disc lock, only that is bolted onto the calliper and the pin is removable rather than retractable. The latter presumably to avoid any risk of it slipping whilst riding.

So the main part still goes around the disc to catch the pin on the other side, see the image from the front page of their site:

I see now, the disc passes through that gap whilst the bike is on the move. :cheers:

Its a disc lock thats attached to the bike, Id like to see how much damage a thief would do to get this off, just undoing bolts is to simple....

End of they day, its like all security...fitted as a deterrent.

Stick one of these to your fairing.... No battery drain on the bike and makes a bit of a noise when they move the bike.

Wireless Remote control Shock Vibration Sensor Alarm, for the price its a good start...

I've got an Oxford Boss Alarmed lock, I use it with an Oxford chain and it works a treat, the noise is fairly loud but don't expect people to be hearing it miles and miles all round, the warning noise is louder than the alarm which seems to be a problem with all Oxford products, not sure why they design them this way.

2 alarmed disc locks one front one back, unless someone is specifically after your bike the random toe rag will pass it by.

this looks pretty good value:

https://www.sportsbikeshop.co.uk/motorc ... rod/140286
Got one for the scooter, it's good. You adjust the sensitivity by where you put it on the disc. 12'oclock super sensitive or 6'oclock not very sensitive. Battery lasts a couple of years.
