I Ride: Triumph Speed Triple, YZF R6.
I live in an apt, and luckily my 2 reserved parking spaced are right out side my bedroom window.
On the sportbike I have the stock steering lock, A kryptonite lock that goes through the front rim and frame of the bike then around the steel post that supports the roof for the covered parking, the gorrilla alarm with proximity, and tilt sensor plus 2 way paging (the paging is more for when I park the bike at work)
On my Dr-z I have the Kryptonite ulocks that go through the rims, and frame then they are connected to a longer kryponite cable that is locked to the same support post.

If someone really wants the bikes they will get them, so the locks and alarms are just a deterent in my opinion. for all else there is theft insurance.

I use Grip Lock...holds the front brake down and prevents the throttle from being twisted.

Oh yea and Lojack too!

Well, theft insurance helps, but its pretty pricey and is by no means a form of prevention. I think the only devices that would really do anything are an alarm system, grounded bolt/chain, and GPS tracker. Like I said, I've got the disk lock alarm, but that's probably the least effective of the 3. Idk why GPS trackers are so gosh darn expensive. I bet if I wired an old Iphone under my gastank it'd be cheaper than the things they've got on the market

GPS trackers are cool and all, but if a thief takes off with your bike, assuming he also cracked your steering lock do you really want it back? If you have full insurance better off getting a new bike that doesn't have shit all cracked.

had you clicked the link you would have gotten what i believe to be the best method currently. it is a diy tilt sensor you can build yourself for under 50$. if the bike tilts the alarm goes off.

A little overkill for me, but I've had a bike go missing on me.

Grip lock
Disc lock
Alarm (Just installed)
and lastly a key lock for my fuel valve. (Gotta love carbs!)

In the winter I keep my bike in my living room, since I don't have covered parking and my cover isn't perfectly waterproof...that and I have Water Wetter and water, so if it drops below 32F I could break something. In the Summer it sits outside my apartment...hasn't been stolen yet! Though if I hear anything I have a Glock 45 for that...hopefully not though. Don't wanna do time for shooting a pos that needs to be shot.

The manual says that'll start happening if the disk detector mirror gets dirty. Try taking it off and cleaning the inside and see if it helps.
