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 :)

@Flash Yellow , the key is to make your bike as inconvenient as possible to just grab. If they’re targeting your bike, nothing you can do will stop them. But I’m sure the SV is pretty low on their their priority list.
The tracking relies only on iPhones so if Slippin' Jimmy hate fruit? you're SOL.
Any passing iPhone transmits the location as well. The anti-stalking feature is a drawback, but necessary. It seems most ‘semi-pro’ thieves will park the stolen vehicle in an out of the way location for a few days first. Just to see if anyone comes looking for it…
