How to unlock the "LOCK" on bikes..????

Hey, guys. Last night ended in a rather chitty way with my best freind's bike being stolen. It was a MINT 2002 YZF-R1 with a Micron slip on, FE, rear cowl, and so on. What I cannot believe is that this happened at our usual hang out spot. We frequent this coffee shop and park our bikes at the usual spot. We came out after one hour and his bike was gone. There as a total of 4 bikes including mine and my freinds.

What I'd like to know is if there is a way to unlock the bike's steering when you left it in the "lock" position. If no one knows hows, I'd like to at least get educated on how the mechanism works. Let me get some feedback guys. This is such a shitty feeling. I know how hard my freind worked to get his bike and I remember the day we went to pick it up. I fuxxing hate thieves...

From what I have heard, the lock is useless... If you put your weight into the bars you can brake it loose.... Just what I have heard.. My lock was also on when by bike was stolen. Didn't slow them down a lick.... Even with security in the parking garage and cameras everywhere... No one saw anything...
Advise to everyone... Keep all the aftermarket reciepts!!!!!!
That way you can get some cash from the insurance for all the aftermarkets that are put on...

Doesn't matter if it was locked. It just takes 4 guys and a pickup! They stick a metal bar through the front & back tires and in seconds they just lift it into the back of the pickup. Safest way to leave a bike is to secure it to a non-moveable object and lock both tires! That would make way too much work for the theives as they would rather do the dirty deed within 3 minutes!

If it's anything like a car steering wheel lock it can be broken with minimal effort.

no matter what kind of locks you got or where you park it, if its your time to go... its your time to go...... sorry to break it to you this way, all it take is a truck or a van and maybe 3 assholes.
i usually never park my bike unattended for more than 10 mins and when i do, its chained to other bikes.

the lock is USELESS.. A shaved key can be had for like $10 which acts like a skeleton key on certain manfuacturers bikes... I've also heard a screwdriver can break the lock in seconds.

I've heard this as well. A large screw driver and a hamer and BANG BANG the ignition is open to hotwire and the lock is broken. Thieves suck.

when someone tried to steal my bike unsuccessfully they did manage to break the steering lock.

they jammed a sharp object, probably a screwdriver, through the left side of the ignition housing, breaking it and breaking something inside that kept it locked. the ignition switch looks undamaged from above and the key still worked in it, but wouldnt lock the steering...

fuckers.

luckily I had the bikebrace.com so bike stayed in my possesion.

pantablo, your post prompted me to buy the Bike Brace after my first RR was stolen a month after getting it.

Unfortunately, my a$$hole landlord wouldn't allow me to install it. So I now I just have the biggest chain I could find wrapped around a pole via my swingarm.

That thing looks interesting.... However, where do you keep it when you're riding around? It looks rather big and bulky.

LOL...in the underseat storage on the bike...hahaha.

When I ride, I ride stopping rarely. So the only time the bike is parked up is in the garage.

that will work too, but I would let him forget about it for a while then install it without him knowing; paint it grey to match the concrete. Or you could be nice and show him how you'd repair the holes in the concrete when/if you remove it, or how you'll hold him responsible when the garage security fails to prevent a theft of the bike...er, you get the idea...too bad he's a prick though.

It's just a pin, so if you turn the handle bars hard, it snaps off, happened to this guy I took the MSF with, he snapped it on his R1.

But seriously, if someones, going to steal your bike, they gonna git it somehow or other.

Scaffold bar and a fat mate, that'll break any steering lock, cars included. To punch an ignition easily, get a crook lock and weld a screw to the end, screw it into the ignition and bash the crook lock, and it should pop straight out. For car windows you cant beat a centre punch, will shatter glass quietly and quickly with minimum effort.

I used to work at a dealership. the only safe way to truly secure your bike is to know where it is at all times, thats why i use GPS.

Maybe too much info?, why don't we just teach everyone to DP our cars.

I had my gixxer stolen back in '96. I didn't have it chained up... just a disc lock. The bastages just hefted it into the back of a pick-up and drove off. Popo just told me that the body work would fetch some scratch for them as would the engine (legends race cars - big in NC) and the rest would end up in the swamp. Their attitude was very reassuring. Now my bike is in a locked garage both at home and at work (I commute almost everyday on it). When I'm out on the weekends on it there's not much I can do for 'er.

Ladies and Gentlemen,
Please be aware that your posts will end up in google and some rookie idiot will learn how to steal bikes from it. Please be cautious in what you post. I had my car stolen based on advice like this.

Honest question, how old is TOO old of a thread to revive? At least he didn't start a new one.

I mean if this was a FS or WTB thread, sure, but it's potentially relevant to his issues. At least he used the search function...

Maybe the admins can set an auto-archive function.. something like 1 or 2 years with no updates, it gets locked??
