Angry GQ* & his new Ninja - Week 1

Well I bought the bike (2007 ZX6r) last Tuesday. I come out this afternoon (on our way to go eat lunch) to find that my bike cover is missing. U mother fcukers stole my bike cover, really!? I get to the bike to make sure that's the worst of it.... my ignition wires are all cut! I guess the worthless a-holes realized in mid splice that there was a lock on the front rotor and decided to just leave w/the cover. I haven't even taken any picture of her to post up and brag It looks like there are 7 wires...6 are cut and 1 actually broke the solder from the ignition. So my 1st instinct is to try to get in there and redo the soldering and hope that works...problem is I don't have a soldering gun. Anyone ever done this and wanna help by lending a soldering gun and or experience?

Oh and for those that are going to ask. I live in apts, I don't rent a $80/mo garage and don't have assigned parking or a pole/post that I can cable/chain the bike to.

The good news is the lock did it's job and deterred the POS thieves. The bad news is the thieves were too dumb/rushed to check for a lock 1st and ended up just vandalizing my bike and stealing a cover.

Yeah I'd watch it. If they want it, they'll more than likely be back with a truck VERY soon.

If I was a crazy man, and I am, get a paintball gun (not a real one because that leads to felony/homicide charges) and plant your bike out there, and you and your homies can have some fun when the scumbags come back, bahahaha! No, for real don't do that though, park it inside or at a friends garage, as AshleyRhea said, they'll prolly be back soon.

I need my solder gun daily but if you'd like to bring it to us we can help you with what I have at work.


Sorry to hear, D.

Well after Chris talked me thru some things over the phone my cuz and I were able to get her started Then I took the top triple tree off so that I can take the ignition and the wires off and resolder. Does anyone know of any reason why it wouldn't be as easy as resoldering?

Oh and I've got full coverage so if they come take it in a truck I'll just have to get another one

Soldering guns are pretty cheap and not too hard to learn, I picked one up for maybe $10 and the Solder you can get really cheap. Definately a good investment if you plan to do any other wiring in the future.

frustrating! maybe you could roll it through the partment to a closed in patio? that would at least make it difficult. hassle for you means hassle for thieves. at least they didnt get away with the bike though

Cmon man use some common sense. Bike+Apartment parking= stolen bike. Even if you have full coverage, if they steal your bike, insurance is going to pay you once but good luck ever getting a bike insured again especially at the same address.

Be smart and if you like to ride. Just find someone you trust and store your bike in there garage.
