Taking the gas tank off and trying to carry it around? heheh, Naw, not a good idea bud ;-}

A good lock and ignition switch are the easiest for you and hardest for a would be thief.

I didn't do the lock yesterday afternoon and one of mine was stolen because my ditsy roommate left the garage door open.
I do however have the satisfaction of knowing they won't be able make it run until put a new CDI on it because I epoxy my unique ignition keyswitch module on the CDI and it was turned off.

The jerk that stole it may be able to force the keyswitch but unlikely. The 4 tumbler switches I use are for things like cash registers and servers, and trying to force the module off is likely to rip the cdi wires out rendering it useless.

3 other easy things are turn both gas valves off, and disengage the the clutch lock so it won't roll unless they engage it.
