Glad it didn't get stolen. Easy fix - Just solder the wires back together, and heat shrink

Yeah put it inside apt if you live on first floor. Or leave it in a buddies garage for a while. They will be back if they are serious about it and not just some drunk looking to with other people's stuff. Sad you have to do this, I feel for you. I have a garage at my place but there are a handful of bikes at my apt that park them outside. This will sound bad but better there bike walk off then mine. Even the garage won't deter a real thieve. I even bock mine in with the 800lb 4 wheeler while its in garage. A $10 replacement remote will get you into most garages.

Also get a Disk lock w/alarm. Will not prevent if they actually carry the bike into a truck or van but is a got deterrent. Also if you can lock the bike to a pole or post it will also be a good deterrent. You need to use several layers of protection to discourage the thief.

This lock is pretty good! I had a few try to steal my kayaks and cooler out the back of my truck, but luckily this cable was hard to break through. They did steal my tackle boxes, a few rods, and the fish out of my cooler... but my kayaks and cooler were still there.

i'd say it's a bad start to a good day because you still have the bike. I would definitely move it inside your apartment or find somewhere safe to keep it.

Basically run the wiring inside of the conduit so it can't be cut.

I'm in the heights.


If you need to make it run for work maybe.... strip the wires back some match the colors and twist them together. this will at least get you driving again. be sure to cover twists with some tape. ----this is a temp fix to get you to be able to take it some where for help

For the repair, get some adhesive-lined heat shrink tubing for a weather-tight seal. HarborFreight used to have them, but not any more I believe. Fry's should carry them. Or try http://epohouston.com/ on Fondren, off Westpark.

A few wires on an ignition is a cake walk after soldering and rewiring PCM connectors on a vehicle from thieves destroying it.
