Scooter lock....?

Postby cable_guy92 » Fri Apr 11, 2014 9:06 am

I just bought a 2007 Lifan LT150T-G scooter and I would like to know the best way to lock it up when I start taking it to work? Is the regular key enough or should I also use some brand of scooter/moped lock?

Thanks all !

Determined thieves will circumvent ANY deterrents . . secure to a fixed object and accept reality.

Insure it.

I never lock my scooters up, but I do lock up my mopeds with the fork lock and a heavy chain around the frame.

I have had several stolen scooters that were recovered by owners and brought in to me for repair. Locks broken, wires cut, plastic broken., seats cut or ripped, front forks bent, tires flat, muffler and air cleaner missing, etc. When a scooter is stolen it may as well stay gone.

I agree with John. Insurance is not all that expensive on those.
