Any measures you can take so your bike wont be stolen will help. But if i were you stick her in the garage.

anything that is a deterrent will always be a plus


but no matter what, if they want it bad enough they will get it


ive had lowjack installed on both my bikes (one with the early response system and one without), and both were done at the dealer as for where you would get it other wise i have no idea

good luck

Go with lojack if your worried about it out in public.
An alarm won't deter someone if they really want it.
This is how easy someone can make off with your bike. . .


BTW, I really like the Green on the 650R

Ok my newbie question, would a wheel lock or the Krypto chain have made it more difficult for those turds? This my concern when I think about leaving my bike for a bite to eat or something

Maybe a little more, but if thieves want your bike, they gon get it one way or another. You saw how easy it was for them to throw that bike into a van.
And that was only with 2 guys, imagine if they had more lifting the bike. . .

If it is lojack you are looking for talk to Texas Yamaha Gulf Coast or Motorcycles Unlimited.
