PSA: Cheap additional portable Alarm-System for Motorcycle etc.

I just thought I'd mention a cheap little additional Alarm I use on my SV when parked up for shopping etc. As we know if thieves want the bike they can usually get it but anything to delay or put them off may help.

I keep one of these or similar in a pocket in my Motorcycle jacket

15 Beer tokens-ish.

I glued some small round strong magnets to the bottom ( x4).

When parked up I just stick it on the left hand side under the tank ( There'a nice small void area there ). I keep small sliver of cardboard bent up the end under the batteries in the unit as they don't have an on-off switch so the batteries will drain. I just move this bit of cardboard between one of the Battery contacts to stop this :)

I also use a Disc lock on my Rear Disc with a reminder coil that goes across my seat so I can't forget it :)

HTH :)

It may be different over there but being much small here in the UK most motorcycles are stolen and just ridden by Aholes until the tank is empty and then set fire to them. I know this as it happened to one of my Hondas in 2015.
