If you do decide to buy/use one, do not forget to remove from bike before moving off as I did, resulting in a dazed and confused rider,warped disc, and fractured caliper mount..........Of course, one should always read the instructions before use

ive seen folks atttach a sprung cord to those disklocks and then attach the other end to something critical on the handle bars ...as a reminder to remove ....could be a wise idea .

Ouch, Tom,
Oxford do make a flourescent yellow curly cable which you attach to the lock and loop it around the handlebars as a reminder.
I use one on the 'D' lock that I have for the outfit.(I wouldn't trust myself with a disc lock)

It's the item people buy after they have wrecked a caliper.Disc lock ? 177381

Great deterrent, what we do is put a piece of Blu Tac gooey stuff on the locks' key hole, and when you put it on the bike, take the Blu Tac and stick it on your ignition hole, that way you always remember. (of course if you are younger than 60 you won't forget anyway). Now, what was I saying?

The only experience I have had is a friends disc lock kept going off in the night while I was trying to sleep. We found that the solution to that was stealing the disc lock. It happened on average 3 times a night for 4 nights and we could not convince him not to use it because it was causing us problems.

Have a hidden toggle switch that you trigger when you put the lock on.
This switch can be wired between the ground and the output of the water temperature sensor.
2 advantages:
1) the red overheat temperature light will be ON when you turn the ignition.
2) the bike won't start as the EFI will receive a false signal that the engine is overheated.

This solution is a cheap immobilizer as well as a good reminder for the lock.

I have to tell you that I have a disk lock for 13 years and never used it. Very few BMW are stolen in Canada (maybe 2 a year), and usually this is kids wanting a joy ride.
The old K bikes don't have any market value and they will chose a newer model.

I use a ABAS disk lock. Have owned it and used it for years and years. Bloody big hunk of metal but it sure does a great job of deterring opportunistic thefts. I agree with CF that there is no appeal to thieves for the K-bike in Canada anyways. I took an idea from the airlines and use a cloth strap hanging off the handlebars as a reminder to "remove the lock before flight".

A neat option for the ABUS is a frame mounted lock holder is available. I haven't had a need for one however, even on the M-G which is devoid of any spare space.

PIAA driving lights.
Disc lock ? 024
They are attached to the fender mounts through longer bolts and stainless tubing supports. I have them wired into the Euro light switch on the right handlebar cluster.
