Protect your motorcycle battery from Theft: Anti-theft Tips & tricks
The old adage of “out of sight, out of mind,” holds true. The less your bike is seen, the less likely a thief is to cozy up to it. If you don’t have a garage, keep it covered. Not knowing what’s underneath makes it harder to assess the difficulty of stealing it or to know if it’s even a bike they want. By putting an unbranded cover on your bike, you mystify what is actually under your cover
Keep Your Lock Off The Ground
Whatever lock you use, don’t rest it on the ground, where the thief is more likely to be able to get enough leverage to break it. If you attach the lock up and away from the ground, the thief probably won’t have that extra leverage to pry the lock open. The lock or chain should be attached through the frame, or less desirably, fork or wheel.
Lock Your Motorcycle To Something Heavy
A disc lock might inconvenience joy-riders, but determined thieves can simply hoist such a bike into a waiting truck. If you add a cable to it and anchor that to something solid, you have a more formidable foe. Even bikes inside garages should be securely locked.
Use Multiple Locks On Your Bike
It’s best to use two or more locks of different types in addition to your bike’s built-in lock(s). Unless a thief has surveilled your bike, he probably won’t be prepared to tackle different kinds of locks, and if one of them anchors the bike to something immovable, a gang won’t be able to carry it to a truck.
Buy Quality Locks And Chains
Go for the good stuff when shopping for security: Alarmed disc locks, U-locks of hardened steel, and asymmetrical chains—5/8 inch or greater—all rate highly.
