Disk locks fit on rear rotor?

If so, is anyone using them there? Reason I ask, is I figure if the front forks are locked, that may as well be as good as a disc lock up there, because lifting the rear end and trying to roll the bike away on the front seems like it would be much more awkward than rolling it away on the back wheel, so why not lock that one?

Anyhow, car doesn't work right now, and it's going to be a while before I can get it repaired, so I may have to take the bike to work sometimes, but all we have is an open parking lot, so I'm looking for something cheap I can get quickly just to make it slightly more secure. Any opinions? Don't think there's a decent enough pole I can chain it to.

Also, anyone have any experience with the disc locks with tilt sensor alarms in them? Worth it?

Thanks for your input.

Whatever you do, DON'T forget to take it off before you motor away.

Yeah, not really worried about that. I almost never drive off without backing out of a spot. And either way, if I go with the disk lock, I'll probably get one of those yellow coils to put on the bars to remind me.

Ha, and if it DOES fit on the rear, I don't have rear brakes right now anyway!

I always use mine on the rear rotors only.
I agree its harder to lift up.

Some say its not worth it but you should invest in an alarm. Gorilla moto alarm is $70 at amazon.com right now.
Its got a tilt and shock sensor, so sensitive it always chirps when I close my garage door! Other day I checked to make sure I locked the trunk and just a wiggle set the alarm off. Very simple to install, did my own in about an hour tops.
Ride around and look for a spot to park near a post or something to lock up your bike too. No bigger regret than walking out to an empty spot.

For those using the gorrilla alarm, does this put any more drain on the battery? And if so, how much? Sometimes I wind up not riding for a week or 2 and I don't want to have to charge the battery all the time. Just curious.

I dont imagine it does. Even at that 2 week interval, my guess is start your bike up at least twice a week just to be sure.

I have a battery tender on my bike but I haven't used it since I got my alarm put on and it didnt have a problem starting up even after sitting a week.

I've got a couple of questions similar to this, I'll PM Cali, that dude knows way too much! I'll update with his response if he doesn't first.

Yeah, I don't have a tender, nor even a way to use one where I have to store it.
