Xena Disc lock XX15 vs. XX14 (or is there something better))

I am finally going to buy a disc lock again, mine flew off my bike last year when I wrecked and I never bought a new one. I am looking into the top end Xena locks and wondering what MotoHoustons opinions are on these two locks.

The XX15 vs the XX14 are what I am currently looking at, they are identical in my view except for the fact that the XX15 is slightly heavier and larger then the XX14.

This makes the locking point different on the disc if you look at this chart:

Also, the price difference is about $10 more on the XX15 through amazon then the XX14.

Let me know what you think, and if there is something even better then what I am currently looking at.

It depends on what kind of bike. I have the XX14, which i decide on after a conversation with a Xena rep. about which one would work best on a sport bike.

Are you speaking from some sort of experience, please elaborate.

The XX14 and XX15 have a much stronger body then any of their previous lock or any other manufacture. The older models are made from a metal alloy as these newer models are (copied from the manufacture website):

An extremely strong lock body and piercing alarm make the high-performance XX15 a remarkably effective way to protect your motorbike.

Lock: High nickel-content stainless-steel mono-block construction with a broad fit profile and 14mm double-locking, carbide-reinforced hardened-steel locking pin. Freeze-spray resistant, pick-resistant key and barrel.

Why was the XX14 better for your sport bike then the XX15? My application is a EX650 Street bike. Our rotors are most likely identical in size.

I wrote and email asking them what is the differences and what one is better. Both fit my bike, both look identical other then one is slightly larger the the other, by just a few MM.

I don't remember exactly, its been a while back, but I actually called and spoke with someone there. I think I remember him saying there was no difference, as far as performance, between those two locks and the XX14 was designed more towards sport bikes due to the limited space you have on the front rotors of some of them. Plus its easier carry even though its not much larger every little bit matter on a sport bike.

When looking for a disc lock at cycle gear, I was told that the pin size is what was being compared. Different rotors (generically, sport vs cruiser) have a different size hole drilled in them. You want the pin to fill the hole. Of course, you can make them work around the whole rotor if thin, or use the smaller pin on either, and diff makes may have diff size drilled rotors.
