motorcycle alarm Buyer’s Guide

If you keep the before points in mind, you can easily go out to the market and buy motorcycle alarm, right? No!

Lock lingo

Over the two decades that we’ve been putting together our intensive and independent lock tests we’ve always used a combination of manual and power tools, and force and finesse to try and break locks.

This time we’ve upped our game, significantly, by using the facilities of Germany’s biggest security manufacturer, Abus, and more importantly its state-of-the-art test labs, and training on how to use the machines on offer.

We devised a full-on torture chamber of tests that fully simulate each and every way a lock is attacked and broken. For this we needed multiple models from each manufacturer, so thank you to those who took up the challenge and supplied test samples willingly.

With nine tests on a total of 2different models (2are shown here with seven reviews below), that’s 26separate tests, and a total of in excess of £11,000 worth of locks tested to destruction…

D-locks or U-locks

The D-lock, or U-lock as it is alternatively known, is the classic bike lock. The design consists of a big shackle and toughened crossbar with the lock mechanism built in. It’s been around for years, and it’s really just a supersized padlock. The benefits are the strength for its size and relative portability.

Lock brand ratings are confusing!

All the good brands provide their own rating systems for grading the security of their locks and these are useful for choosing a lock from that one manufacturer.

We can divide chain locks into two broad groups

Portable chains are easy to transport wrapped around your seat post and their relative length means you can secure your bike to a wide range of objects. However these chains will generally be no more than 1mm thick and are not as secure as good U-locks. And they are still much heavier than U-locks.

A super thick, core hardened steel chain with a heavy, top quality lock is perhaps the most secure way to lock your bike. However these chains are so heavy and cumbersome, that they generally work best as a second, stationary lock which you leave wherever your bike is regularly secured for long periods of time.

As with U-locks you should think carefully about what size and thickness you need and how you will carry it about if you need a portable chain.

I have selected and reviewed three great chain locks for you to look at below. And you can read more about the best chain locks here. Or compare the locks in a table of the most popular chain locks here.

Folding Locks

Folding locks are made up of a series of metal plates linked together by rivets. The rivets allow the plates to rotate so they can be folded into a tight package and then folded out to make a stiff shape that you can fasten around your bike.

Kryptonite Rating

Although the shackle is just 1mm thick, it’s made from a special “Max Performance” steel which makes it as strong as Kryptonites other 1mm shackle U-locks.

And this thin shackle means it weighs just 1.8lb (0.8kg) which is about the same as two cans of coke.

While Sold Secure have not yet rated it, Kryptonite give it a 7/which is the same rating as it’s highly regarded (Sold Secure Silver) Evolution range of U-locks.

You can check out how it compares to other small, light U-locks here.

OnGuard Rating

While Sold Secure haven’t tested the Mini, it’s bigger brother gets a very respectable Silver rating and since it has the same 63/100 in house rating from OnGuard, it’s safe to assume it offers the same level of protection.

So, if you’re “Lower Risk” and attracted to the low prices of cable locks, you’ve got no excuse: the OnGuard Bulldog Mini is also really cheap, but will protect you bike much, much better.

Check out how it fares against other mini U-locks here.

Chain lock

Lower risk situations. A cheap, small, lightweight alternative to a cable lock.

U-locks vs Chain locks vs Folding locks

I talk about the pros and cons of U-locks and chains in much more detail in the U-lock vs chain lock page.

But to summarize here: if you’re looking for a lock that you can carry around with you every day, then a U-lock is generally the better choice. U-locks provide the nicest balance between security, practicality and price. So they are usually lighter, cheaper and more secure than portable chains.

Of course, there may be good reasons to choose a chain over a U-lock. For instance, maybe you need the greater locking options that a long chain offers. Or maybe you don’t like the frame mounts that come with U-locks and prefer the ease of wrapping a chain round your seat post. But in most cases, U-locks are the best option for portable security.

If on the other hand you’re looking for a lock that stays in one place, at home or at work, then a big, heavy chain is the better choice. A thick chain with a strong lock provides the highest possible level of security for your bike.

But what about folding locks? Just like U-locks, folding locks are best suited to mobile security. And they address two of the main problems that we can face with U-locks: their limited size and how difficult they can be to carry around on your bike.

Because they are longer and more flexible, you will find more places you can lock you bike up. And because they are so compact when folded up, they are much easier to transport. They also compete well with U-locks in terms of weight.

Abus vs Kryptonite vs OnGuard

Kryptonite also produce high quality locks. While not quite up to the standard of Abus, they make up for this with exceptional customer service. This includes free key and lock replacement in certain circumstances and the best of the anti-theft protection schemes.

OnGuard have had a slightly poorer reputation for both quality and particularly customer service. However, in recent years they have significantly improved the build quality of their locks. And they beat both Abus and Kryptonite in terms of price. OnGuard locks are nearly always the cheapest of any locks at the same level of security.

Astra Depot 6mm Lock Alarm

This is one of the cheapest bike lock alarms that I’ve seen. This little guy attaches to your disc brake and will let out a loud alarm if disturbed. Your disc needs to be the right size though – it can’t be more than cm thick and the holes need to be 6mm. Astra Depot says that this is widely compatible though, and will fit bikes of various styles from different manufacturers.

The lock is stainless steel, it’s waterproof, and it costs less than twenty bucks. People who have bought them seem pretty happy and the lock alarm works as advertised. I think the piece of mind you can buy for a twenty and change is definitely worth it.

Artago Secure 24S.6M Alarm Disc Lock

The Artago is a good-looking electronic disc lock with a LOUD alarm of more than 120 dB. It’s not cheap though, so hopefully it makes it worth the price. The 6mm pin diameter means that it will be compatible with all but the weirdest, exotic brake discs.

Powered by an inexpensive CRlithium cell and with IP5water resistance, it seems that at least you won’t have to worry about getting the Artago wet or about finding a battery for it when it runs out.

One neat trick that the Artago has is the inclusion of a light alarm as well. This is especially useful at night when its powerful little light will be clearly visible and a thief will not have the luxury of working under cover of darkness.

It’s a bit pricey, but given the extra light-up functionality, nice design, and two year warranty, it might just be worth it.

XENA XX10-Y

Another rather pricey disc lock; this one bright yellow, which might very well be an additional deterrent. This is a rather hefty lock with a loud 120 dB alarm, using the kind of CRlithium cell you can get from almost any pharmacy.

The barrel is freeze-spray resistant, which is one fast technique that thieves have been using recently. The alarm module is also removable if you just want a lock.

Each lock has a unique key code and the pin has been reinforced with carbide. The only thing that concerns me is the size of the pin, which may be too big for some motorcycles. So be sure to measure the holes on your disc before making a purchase. Otherwise I think this is a great little alarm.

Carchet Scooter Alarm

Well, here we have an alarm that is not also a brake disc lock. This alarm is battery powered, so it doesn’t have to be spliced into your wiring. It costs nine bucks, uses a 9-volt cell, and has a little remote to activate it, just like a car’s alarm. If the bike is moved, a sensor will pick that up and squeal.

Unfortunately it seems to only work now and then, it isn’t waterproof, and basically if you can’t trust it it does nothing for your peace of mind. It’s a nope on this one, I’m afraid.

Make Some Noise

If you aren’t talking about complicated “cut your wires up” alarm systems then one alarm seems pretty much like the next. I still maintain that good quality disc locks with built in alarms are the way to go. If you do want a fancier alarm I suggest you get a professional to do it, especially since it requires messing around with the ignition system’s wiring.

Flip Up

You might have seen them before, they look like a normal full face lid but you can press a button and pull the front of the helmet up so your face is out in the open. They’re a useful helmet since you can flip them up and go in to the shops without taking it off and because you won’t be going at high speed for long stretches of time e.g the motorway you can have it flipped up while you ride if the weather warms.

Selecting the right shell

When you’re looking at helmets it’s good to keep in mind that although there’s a lot of different graphics to choose from, each manufacturer will only use a few different shells in each style of helmet but this does depend on the size of the brand and what types of helmets they specialize in. Another thing that can help you choose the right helmet for you is the number of shell sizes available in the model you are looking at.

Every size of helmet doesn’t have it’s own shell size with most helmet models having about shell sizes with a smaller on going from XS-M and a slightly bigger shell for sizes L-2XL. We recommend if your head is either an XS or a 2XL helmet size you should go for a model that has atleast shell sizes since this means the overall shell will be closer to the size of your head and not over filled with padding liner to make up for the extra space or liners are minimized for the same reason, which could affect how well the helmet performs in a crash.

Other Vehicle Insurance

Whether you’re a road warrior seeking adventure or you’re just looking for a way to get around town, there’s nothing quite like driving a motorcycle.

As you would with a car, you’ll need insurance if you want to protect yourself, your passengers and your investment. And just as you’d shop around for auto insurance quotes, you’ll want to find the best insurance for your bike. Here’s NerdWallet’s guide to understanding motorcycle insurance.

Motorcycle insurance requirements

Consider buying extra liability beyond your state’s minimum requirements to protect your assets in case you’re sued over an accident. Minimum liability limits might not be enough to pay your legal costs and claims if you’re sued, and creditors could go after some of your assets. Also, check with your insurance company to be sure your bodily injury liability insurance covers passengers; in some states, you might need passenger liability coverage to insure them.

Motorcycle insurance lay-up periods

Many insurers offer what is called lay-up insurance during winter, when many drivers put their motorcycles away. During the lay-up period, insurance still covers you against theft and other events that can happen while your bike is in storage. Lay-up coverage saves on your annual insurance costs, but keep in mind that if you take the bike out on the road during the lay-up period, insurance won’t cover you in an accident.

Abus Trigger Alarm 34Yellow 40033155974

As you probably already know, a disc lock uses the holes in a motorcycles brake to secure the bike from. The Abus Trigger 34does the same thing but designed perfectly to protect your motorcycle. The lock includes a strong 5mm locking pin to provide extra strength for the lock.

It is easy to use but still has integrated alarm system.

Let’s Lock Things Up

Well there you have it, some of the best motorcycle locks review for any rider to read and pick from. Hopefully this article gave you the best way to lock up a motorcycle and protect your investment. It’s not worth it to risk losing your bike when you can purchase a quality and valuable bike lock. In the end, yes, bike locks are very important, but there is honestly nothing stopping a criminal from stealing your bike.

There is no chain that can’t be broke or no lock that can’t be picked or destroyed. The way you protect your bike is by merely having a quality lock on the bike. By doing this you can increase the time it will take to steal your bike, which then, if it exceeds the criminals expected profits, will keep people away from messing with your bike.

So please, I strongly recommend that you go out and purchase your own personal bike lock, it will help keep your pride and joy is safe while you aren’t around. If you liked our motorcycle disc lock alarm reviews, please share it with your fellow riders as well.

Accessories

Part of the fun of motorcycling is making your bike a personal statement, and choosing your gear. Make sure your helmet is good quality, your clothing offers protection and comfort, and your boots are sturdy enough to survive a dropped motorcycle on top.

This is the easiest bike to ride in our line-up with a low seat height of 34.7-inches and a feather light clutch. It’s well balanced in slow, tight situations. Aggressively styled after its CRF motocross brethren (the name is the only thing they share), the CRF250L in its stock form is actually suited more for street commuting rather than off-road excursions. The little CRF is quickly becoming one of the most popular entry-level ADV bikes because of its user-friendliness, low price, and Honda reliability.

Yamaha WR250R

The WR250R is a high-tech dual-sport that offers the most versatility in the small bike segment. A tall seat height of 36.6-inches automatically disqualifies some riders. Fully adjustable suspension and an eager motor make performance a top priority for this bike.

Suzuki V-Strom 650

This used to be the dual-sport standard. Racing heritage, beefy long travel suspension, reliable, easy to maintenance motor, the XR650L is technologically the oldest bike in this lineup but still able to hang with the young guns. If you’re on a tight budget this might be the best way to get a good bang for your buck. The current model year model is the exact same bike they produced back in 199Valve services are simple and regular checks can be done in 1minutes. Many pre-owned bikes already have the necessary mods—larger gas tank, comfy seat, higher handlebars, etc. This bike is a prime example of Honda reliability.

The XR650L is a gas guzzler and the small 2.gal. tank doesn’t help, resulting in frequent gas stops. The seat is wider and plusher than most dirt bikes. The seat to foot peg distance is short, cramping-up taller riders. Ironically, because it takes a taller person to mount the 37-inch high seat. The big XR will sustain highway speeds for extended periods of time, but the lack of wind protection creates helmet buffeting and the rider takes a windblast to the chest.

Quick tips on purchasing a motorcycle

Buying any sort of vehicle can be a big financial commitment for most people and this includes buying a motorcycle. Having a motorcycle can be a wonderful experience for those with the confidence and experience to ride one but when it comes to buying your own motorcycle there are a few things that you need to take into consideration.

Price. Buying a motorcycle needs to be given the same thought and consideration as you would exercise if you were making any other considerable investment. As is the case with cars and trucks, buying a motorcycle can be a costly affair, as the price can be quite high depending on the type of motorcycle you are looking for and whether you buy new or used.

Safety. In addition to the financial side of things you also need to look at other important issues, such as the suitability of the machine that you are looking to purchase and also the safety aspects. For example, if you buy a second-hand motorcycle from a private seller you will be generally be taking greater risks in terms of safety than if you bought a brand new and fully checked motorcycle from a dealer.

Your experience level and type of riding. Your experience level should give you an indication of the type of bike you should be looking at, and so will the type of riding you think you’ll be doing. On-road or off-road, sport bikes or more lifestyle-suited models, make sure you get a bike that’s going to compliment your skills and needs.

Accessories. There are various other things you’ll need to purchase along with your bike, so make sure you factor the cost of all them into your budget. Remember things like a helmet, jacket, gloves, rain and weather gear, boots, and dedicated eye gear if you need it. All of this doesn’t come cheap, so make sure you shop around.

It is important not to get carried away and rush into any decisions when you are buying a motorcycle, as this could otherwise end up being a costly or even a dangerous mistake. You have to respect that these are powerful machines and therefore safety should be paramount. This, coupled with the variety of other considerations that have you need to think about, means that you should do your research before you purchase a motorcycle.

Compare

Putting in some time and effort into doing your research before you make your decision means that you can enjoy greater peace of mind when you are buying your motorcycle as well as cutting the risk of problems and issues that could arise from buying a defective or unsuitable motorcycle. Remember to compare your loan options if you’re considering finance to ensure you get the best deal.
