Nope goes back to every other thread like this (on this site and on many others). There is a way to defeat EVERYTHING. Best best is full coverage, unless your bike is old enough that comp is more than the bike is worth.

BUT.. having said that, having one of the better chains or cables out there (the kryptonite brand cables like i use are actually really hard to cut, the big bolt cutters will cut them but not cleanly, it takes a while) and they will discourage probably 90% of the theives that steal bikes. Most theives are opportunists. Some are professional who ride around with an enclosed trailer with a tommy gate and an acetylene torch. Youre never going to be able to protect your bike from this kind of thief. Thankfully, your average thief is someone who isn't too well off probably not too too bright, and just happened upon your bike and thought he could take it. The harder you make it to steal, the more likely they will pass it by for an easier target.
Park it in with your truck. Use a disc lock through the rear. Lock the steering column. Put an alarm on it that will make noise when they start ing with it. Put a cable lock around a pole or tree and through the swingarm.

There just comes a point though, when its like... if they get it with all that done, they were gonna get it no matter what. To me, the cable around a pole and through the disc lock is the most inconvenience I can stand. If they get it with that, they prolly woulda got it with anything, so I wouldn't have any regrets as far as additional security goes.

Someone else said it but it needs repeating - IF you have no other options, better get LoJack - Then you can find it after they take it.

theres nowhere to "hide" it on a sportbike that someone can't think to look as soon as they steal it... by the time you know its gone, they've ripped it off an tossed it in a garbage truck, or just disabled it.

From my understanding of lojack, the tracking device is only accessible to law enforcement as well, so they have to be willing partners for you to recover your bike.

If you have no other options get full coverage insurance (and like someone else said, GAP insurance if available, which pays the diff between current bike value and what it would cost to replace it with a new one).

Its just expensive.

I don't have any personal experience with this lock, but these chains look pretty sturdy:
