Why would you tell someone how to start a bike w/o a key/ignition seems like a pretty dumb move for a shop.

Excellent article! I usually don't read something that in-depth. I would say that I learned quite a bit about how easy it is for one of our bikes to disappear in such a small amount of time.

Even though I park in a secured garage, my roommate and I caught a bum trying to kick in our garage door after he gathered up all the garbage bagged beer cans on our side yard....makes me nervous.

Xena disk lock or any proximity/motion sensor alarm would be a great addition to my bike....hmm.

Ignition Bypass (Honda CBR600RR And CBR1000R) These models of Honda sportbikes have a pair of wires heading into the ignition; some years the wires are on the left, others on the right. In either case, the wires (usually encased in plastic tubing) can quickly be cut, stripped and twisted together, at which point the electrical system of the motorcycle comes alive. A push on the starter button starts the engine. Potential quick solution: Re-route the wires so they are not accessible, or include an immobilizer-type device in the circuit....

where would one go about rerouting the wires? and also, how would you make a killswitch for it? i'm horrible with electrical stuff so layman's terms would be greatly appreciated:book1::icon_lol:

:beer:Just remember, some people are still alive simply because it is illegal to shoot them...

Ever since I saw the video of 2 guys throwing a bike in the side of a Dodge Caravan I've always known how easy it is. If they can do that then they have an unlimited amount of time back at the shop to get around any security systems.

Its nice to see the cops starting the Bait Bike thing. We've seen Bait Cars for years now with a lot of success, so this is a great move on their part.

Any chance somebody would paste the article into this thread? I cant read it on the other site.

I know you're out there. I can feel you now. I know that you're afraid, you're afraid of whores. You're afraid of change. I don't know the future. I didn't come here to tell you how this is going to end, but to tell you how it's going to begin. I'm going to get naked in this thread, and then I'm going to show these whores what you don't want them to see. I'm going to show them a world without you. A world without rules and controls, without borders or boundaries. A world where whoring is possible.

Edit: I checked after I wrote the post. I pasted the article into the thread but apparently it's been taken down. Moeman, did the publisher ask you to do that?

HISS retrofit

I live in Norway and my bike came equipped with HISS. I guess if you switched out your ECU and ignition lock with key for a European version, it should work on a US bike? Maybe you would have to swap out the wiring loom as well to make it work? I'm not sure if your instruments would work as normal, but I think it would, because the conversion of the speed signal to mph or kmh takes place in the instrument cluster , right?

I just got my bike fixed after someone tried to "hotwire" it. They had to replace the entire ignition system- $400, not a good week. Thinking of buying a big chain to lock it, any other ideas?

Since I cant read the article Im assuming this is about parkign your bike somewhere other than your house?

Those of you with a house or aptment or something Id consider something like this:


Friend had a different one and its a pretty damn good deterent. You have to take the cement out or break it, plut the one he had had to weight at least another 60 lbs. At leats 60 could have been 75+. Lock was covered up do up cant bolt cut it. Id recommend anyone who has a bike and parks it long term at a sketchy place to get one.

As for on the road it sucks. No real way to stop it. I just dont park mine and dont go to places like that. But thats a personal choice that I know everyone cant make.

"Oh and if you dare say that I dont know whats it like get a freakin clue! I date models and strippers. So dont tell me that I dont know whats its like!" - BDiddy

When I go to my gf's house in SF, I use a really effing heavy chain to lock it to windows bars (you know those things that look like jail bars) and I use a Xena disc lock with an alarm, then I park it right under her bedroom. There is no way anybody would steal it without waking up the whole neighborhood. I still get scared since all other bikes parked outside are crappy bikes.

The safest way is just to have Full Coverage, Period !!!!! If u put locks and all it will only stop some thieves but if u got thieves that really want it there's nothing u can do IMO. Keep all receipts of all your mods and insurance will reimburse you but I know what a Hassle it would be to start over but not as a BiG lost to not get anything.

Lucky Wings, I had the whole article including pics posted in the thread but after a while, I don't know when, those posts went down. I think the publisher had the forum take it down though Moeman never confirmed that when I asked.

Since so many people want to read the article I will put it back up.
