I use one of these religiously on my current bike, and will continue to do so on the 'Cat. It's just too easy to forget!

I used a different trick. Cut a short length of rubber or plastic hose. Place it over the ignition key. When you go to start the bike you remember about the disk lock because of the pipe. Unlock the disc lock and place the pipe on the disc lock key. When you next lock the bike, you need to remove the pipe from the lock key, so put the pipe back on the ignition key.

Hi,

Has anyone tried these (or something similar): http://www.grip-lock.com/

Sounds like a good idea and you couldn't forget it (I've bust a fairing too Neutral ), but would it be bad to have the brake clamped on like that?

Cheers,

Tuan

I dont think its as safe as a disc lock. Id imagine the brake leaver is quite easy to saw through and then the lock would be useless.....

I bought a motrax http://item.mobileweb.ebay.co.uk/viewitem?itemId=380341217031&index=7&nav=SEARCH&nid=62034124091

Got it from George White (RIP) but is such a stupid colour how could you forget to take it off, plus it's Thatchem approved so insurance was just a little bit cheaper as well.

Back in 2005 I bought an Oxford Monster chain package for about £100 from Hein Gerike, it came with this disk lock to be used as either a single disk lock or to lock the chain up

Disc lock (fairing damage) MonsterDisc

A big ruddy Oxford monster chain and a yellow springy thing to put on your bar to remind you about the disc lock, of course I was too cool to use the reminder until one day, back in 2005, there was a CRACK as I wheeled my bike out of a mates garden.... I always use the reminder now

When the missus got a bike the other year I couldn't find the same package anywhere, internet or shops, you could buy the chain but that would only come with a lock for the chain and you had to drop another £60+ again for the disc lock

If you find the two as a package I'd highly recommend it if you are after a new chain and lock. My disk lock fits under the seat of any bike I've tried yet and the Thundercat can easily accomodate the chain also and still leave room for an alarm and other stuff

I've given up on my Xena - it goes through batteries (6xLR44's) a bit too quickly for my liking. I was only using it occasionally, anyway.

Anybody want to buy it?
