Protecting Your Investment

One of the most gut wrenching and infuriating feelings, is to walk out and find someone has stolen something you've worked so hard for. Here are just a few simple, and affordable ways to deter a potential thief.

 

 

Throttle Locks..........

Throttle locks are a quick and easy way to secure your bike from being rolled off. Unlike the steering lock, this solid machined aluminum device is much harder to defeat and may deter a would-be thief when he or she notices it. Not only does it lock the brakes to the rotors, but it also renders the throttle inoperable. Adding this extra step that a thief would have to remove to make the bike operable again, just might make them choose an easier target and leave yours alone.

Rotor Locks...........

Rotor locks are a great secondary means to prevent a roll-off theft from occuring. Even if the steering lock is defeated, this device will inhibit the rear wheel from moving by locking a pin through the slot in the rear rotor. While they are very effective, it is extremely important to not omit the reminder cable when using these devices!! Leaving a rotor lock in place and trying to ride off could cause serious damage to your calipers!

Cable Locks..........

Cable locks may not protect your motorcycle from a theft, but they are an asset that every rider should carry with them. A decent cable lock will allow you to secure your gear while you are away from your bike. By running the cable through a sleeve, then through the opening of your helmet, you can then wrap the cable through the open frame or forks to lock your gear to your bike. No more having to carry everything around with you at long stops!
