Default New anti-theft method

Take a look at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S0bhZtc3mlA

See his anti-theft device? he talks about it throughout the movie and tells how it works.

I'm really going to look into doing this. I looked at the Kat and it has a good chunk of wire coming from the key ignition, so it'd hook up easily. Anyone have any thoughts on it?

Interesting. He should get a patent on that and develop a cleaner version.

I was thinking I could just get 4 adapters, 2 female and 2 male. Cut the wire twice and place a M-F connections on both ends like he did, and add a locking device so it wont come off if something pulls on it.

Hmmmm

/me plans to go to NAPA and Radio shack

That's old school.. A multi pin connector as a key? I think JC Whitney used to sell them. I used to hide a little switch that disabled the FI relay in my cars. Car would crank and work fine but just not start.

Try this instead:

Hit the kill switch to shut the bike and walk away; the system arms itself. Who needs keys!

A simply toggle switch as a kill-switch under the seat would work as well as removing that wiring, and would mean two locks to have to defeat (the ignition and the seat lock).

Very true cyber. I was thinking about that as I was leaving my auto store and learned they didn't have anything for the original method I was talking about. What kind of toggle switch would work, a through-switch (where the wire goes straight through the tube, but is split in the center and is controlled via a throw switch/tightening connection)??
