Default Re: First time litter (theft prevention help?)

I just picked up some adhesive backed vibration detecting alarms from HF for $5 a pair. I'm going to experiment whether these could be used as a backup hidden alarm on a locked bike, an extra measure of protection. Not sure whether they are sensitive enough to trigger upon trying to start a motor bike, but it should work.

Some scooter ignition switches are wired for magneto ignitions and short the coil to ground with the key off. If you use this method of protection the wiring needs to be concealed on a manner not easily accessible, because just pulling the coil wire defeats the lock. KC'a idea about putting a key directly on the CDI so it gets ruined if messed with is a good idea.

I've been thinking about motor bike security more lately because I moved to an area where the bikes would make great local transportation, and am looking at ways to protect it when it's parked in public.
