    Has anyone done a small engine, quick disconnect system? I was thinking that for stealth, and conversion, and subtlty I might want to put everything away in a small bag-box, that can be locked up. while leaving the bike intact as is.

    Thinking about the Golden Eagle Robin kits to do this with.

    Maybe you could replace the mounting bolts with skewers. You could fab a quick disconnect for the throttle cable. Sounds like a hassle, but it beats having an engine stolen. Cheers

    I wonder if I could use some kind of Bear Bag netting to protect the motor by tieing it to the bike when it is parked. Bear bags are used to keep the bears from stealing food, and I believe therie is a steal netting version. Seems it would add more weight to the situation.

    If you're mainly worried about theft, there are specialty screws and bolts you can get that require a certain special tool to remove.

    If you just don't want people to see it when it's parked, just some type of canvas bag/cover thing would work. wouldn't be hard to sew up yourself I bet.

    For being able to get it on/off quickly.....beats me.
