Locks

Recommended Posts

What kind of locks are owners using for their VFRs? I was looking a a Krypotonite chain maybe but thought I'd ask before I bought anything. 

Thanks

I use Abus Granit Detecto X-Plus 8077 Alarm Disc Lock.

It's not too sensitive. Loud noise doesn't set it off - requires bike to be bumped.

It isn't particularly loud, but is a nice deterrent.

I've only used it for one season so far. No issues.

When it comes to security chains, the only real options are Almax, Almax, and er, Almax.

Not sure if they ship outside the uk though.

Almax or Pragmasis.  Top, top quality stuff.  I've got several lengths of 16mm chain, Pragmasis Anti-Pinch Pins and Squire "BMF" padlocks.  Not really necessary in the USA (where, believe it or not, you enjoy a realtively low motorcycle theft rate!), but here in the UK we not only use large, heavy locks and chains, but also cemented-in ground anchors.  Unfortunately, top security gear is HEAVY, so doesn't ship well internationally.  I've still got a few old "large" Kryptonites, which I use as travel chains.  Better than nothing.

 

For a VFR, the Anti-Pinch Pin (with the correct Squire padlock) would be a good way to secure the bike with any chain (the biggest you can find), as it secures both the bike and the precious 8-spoke rear wheel (if you've got one)! 

 

Ciao,
