BMW DISC LOCK
« on: January 18, 2018, 12:35:28 PM »
Purchased a BMW disk lock via eBay - not cheap at £125 but a sturdy piece of kit which should definitely slow the bike thieves down a little. It also has a loud alarm which goes of at the slightest opportunity.

Downsides: a bit to large - doubt if you could fit it to your front wheel; alarm goes off too quickly - 5 secs delay from moving the lock when on the disc making an alarm when fitting and removing the device almost a certainty; difficult to insert the key as the keyhole is in the end of the device and not easily visible when its on the bike.

Otherwise great

Personally, I would never fit a disc lock to my bike whether to deter thieves or not. I have seen several incidents in the past where people have forgot they were fitted and tried to move their bikes off, resulting in costly fork damage. My bike is alarmed, data tagged and fully insured against theft.

That is why you use a disc lock reminder cable.

Alarmed disc-locks dont allow you to move the bike - it will start howling.

A guy parked next to me a couple of years ago at the Ponderosa Cafe in North Wales also had the idiot cable attached to his disc lock but that still didn't stop him moving his bike off its stand with the inevitable damage. Mind you, he was on a BMW R1100 GS!

I have the BMW alarm as well but it only goes off for about 10 seconds, then resets. Dont think anyone would take much notice of it. Had disk locks for many years - not driven off yet. The BMW disc lock is vey sensitive and would go off as soon as you touched the bike so a ride away with it on is very unlikely

it takes exactly 10 seconds to cut through a chain.
I doubt if you could remove a BMW lock in 10 seconds as you would have to make 2 cuts to the disk or remove the disc it self.

I say this from bitter experience.

Having not one but 2 bikes stolen in Central London. I had to buy a second cheap bike for central london travels.

Sad world.....

that BMW lock is a more expensive version of the original Abus 8077 lock.. The 8077 is still on it. I've the no alarm version of it. And I prefer the Abus yellow
