Angry Theives tried to steal my Bike

Bad start of the day...
Seemed like someone tried to steal my bike.

All the wires that lead to ignition were cut...

I have a scorpion alarm installed, but I wasn't home.. So not sure if it alerted my transceiver, nor the time when it happened...

I know it should be kept in a garage, but I don't have one after I changed my apartment.

Stay aware folks...

So much easier to just plug in a working ignition with a key than to cut the wires or stuff it in a truck...Amateurs. Must have been a bunch of dummies. Now you have to deal with getting it fixed. I guess that is better than having to buy a whole new bike though.

Dumbasses will probably be back. You might want to keep it inside your apartment from now on, until you can find a good secure place to store it in.

They can't steal it, if they can't see/find it.

The manufacturers finally fixed that flaw the early GSXR's had.
The plug is now inside the frame, under the airbox and held with a bracket.

Phani,
When you repair the wiring wrap it in stainless coiled conduit.

If you still have the bike parked outside, remove the battery so they can't start it.

Happened to me on my old SV650. Idiots cut all the wires at once. Knife shorted hot to cold and it blew the main fuse. That may be why yours wasn't actually stolen. Check your main fuse before anything else. Mine ended up in a storage lot six months after it was stolen. Turned out it was at a crappy apartment building 5 doors down for 6 months before someone called a tow.

I'd pull it off (not the switch, but the whole triple clamp with the key switch....it's much easier, professionally solder, and heat shrink it back to almost new.

They already failed at starting it. If the same people come back, they are probably just going to throw it in the back of a truck, or stuff it in a van. The OP is better off putting the bike in his apartment, or keeping it at a friends place.

Of course he is better off keeping the bike inside a structure, the OP already admitted he no longer has a garage, but the thief could come back with a friend that knows how to start it.

This is why I pay extra for an apartment with a garage and it's also why I didn't buy a bike til I could afford to store it safely.

To OP, that sucks. Should be an easy fix for you, though.

And Mr. P, I made that mistake once removing some hard wiring for a radar detector before trading in a car. Cut the positive and negative at the same time, shorted, blew fuse. D'oh!

Good to know. I remember how easy they made it for thieves in the past. I was like, Suzuki is dumb for doing this. Of course they weren't the only ones doing that.

oh well, at least they didnt steal it. I always lock up my bike with front and rear wheel locks, chain, and cover with a lock. I know all that won't make it theft proof 100% but I'm sure as going to make them work hard to steal it.
