How can I lock FZ-07?

Recommended Posts

onur
Hi guys.
 
I've started riding few weeks ago. I had a chance to try a FZ-07 (it was already my dream bike) and I immediately fall in love with her.
 
I don't have a garage and I am parking my current bike near a public road with an extremely thick chain and disc lock.
 
Problem with FZ-07 is I didn't see any spot to use chain to lock main frame. I am afraid someone will steal the bike if I lock only rear or front tire.
 
Do you have any recommendation?
 

Sorry for my English

You can use a chain thru the hole in swingarm...I would slip a rubber tube over chain if it's just metal to keep damage down...

Do you mean this hole:

Chain has a cover, but it's a little bit short (electric pole is a bit thick). I hope swingarm is not easy to remove or cut.
 
Thanks for advice and sorry for my English!

@mdifabrizio unfortunately renting garage and storage units are not available in the place I live in.

I'm not sure about where else to wrap the chain on your bike but I hope you are chaining the bike to something that can't be moved so that no one can just lift your bike up and load it into a truck real quick. GL!

The front or rear tire is easy to remove with a very quick ratchet job...but the swing arm requires a fair bit of parts on the bike to be removed just to remove swingarm...or run the chain thru any of the actual blue tubular frame pieces in above picture as an alternative...

@norcal616 I was planning that blue tubular frame but I am not sure there is enough space for a tick chain.

Welcome!
 
Another security measure you can do is purchase a bike cover...
 
And did you happen to purchase a disc lock with an alarm?
