What kind of security are you using?

Since my last bike was stolen out my yard in Myrtle Beach I don't want that to happen to my RC51. Been looking into disc locks and alarm systems.

Wondering what some of you are using.

Xena alarm disc locks I like. Put them on the rear so if you forget you don't break a fender.

There are a variety of alarm options. Scorpio is common.

A big a&& chain locked locked to an immovable object for the yard and a cover helps as well.

Think layered security for the best protection.

Disk lock seems to be a good option but alarm I like for the warning it gives when someone even gets near it.

I have the Scorpio 900.
Loud as hell! Easy install, the proximity sensor works great.

Needless to say I'm happy with it.

Alarms can cause all sorts of problems in addition to drained batteries and unless very sleathily fitted are easy to disable.

I've never had a bike stolen (touch wood) and used to live in Brighton & London in UK, where vehicle theft is rife.
I still have the biggest Abus Granite Lock I could buy 20 years ago and their largest padlock. They cost around $500 back then so they took them off the market as I guess they'd be too expensive today... Weight is around 20kg.

I also use a decent bike cover on each bike and keep the steering locks on.

These days where we live (in the countryside) there's no problem with theft, but they'd have to make a helluva racket with a grinder for around 10 minutes to get through the chain locking the VFR & SP2 together - and we have a dog who will bark with any disturbance at night. In the next couple of years the bikes will live in a very secure workshop too.

Not into disc locks myself as they'll damage fenders, marr expensive calipers, etc. if forgotten - and you do forget them...

When I ride the bike somewhere, I know where it'll be safe and I'm never far away anyways. Plus (thankfully) Japan is a relatively safe country where theft isn't such a problem - although that doesn't mean it doesn't exist...

Went with a Scorpio 800 because of the waterproof fob and added the optional sensors. Disk lock will be used as well.

I've had it for about a year now.
I'm happy with it. The prox sensor works really well. With the system is armed, I've tried to "sneak" past the bike while its in the center of a one car garage. No go, it gives me the warring chirp every time. Also has a tilt and ignition tamper sensors with the ignition kill.

How do I have it all wired? That info is only for me, sorry

I got it as theft deterrent. I know nothing will stop someone from taking it if they really want to. So just trying to make the risk too high for someone to try.
