Made a bracket out of 1/8" aluminum C channel I had laying around. Drew up a little plate to do double duty, and it's pretty strong and sturdy so far.

One way it's armed, other way it isn't, and I don't have to carry it in my pocket now.

By the way, the first post is a video, not a blurry picture. :p

Here is the bracket when I first mocked it up where I figure it would fit well.



And here it is mounted with the xx6 lock mounted in unarmed position.

Tegboi,

I have a xx6, as well. I don't get it though? When you have it at 6 olock it is armed but when you have it at 3 o'clock it is unarmed? Is that because optical sensor is covered?

Also, where are you installing the bracket? it looked like under the tail? Isn't one of the features of the xx6 it is a brake caliper lock?

Yes because the optical sensor.

It is a caliper lock, but you could put it anywhere. My problem is that it won't fit under the seat so I have to keep it in my pocket.

Great idea.

I'm thinking I could do the same thing and make that bracket large enough to also install a helmet lock as I don't like removing the seat to lock my helmet.

hahaha, 6 months later guys!

Shoebacca78 - Yes, at 3 o'clock it is unarmed because the sensor is not blocked, and it can be mounted there and left there safely when not using it, or during riding. I typically take the lock off of the bracket and attach it onto my rear disc rotor, but the 6 o'clock mounting where it is armed is just a convenient option incase you're parked around alot of bikes, but still want some sort of alarm on incase it is knocked over or hit.

Mecevans - Exactly! It's a good 3LB's or so? Whatever it weighs, it's big enough and heavy enough to not want in my pocket.

rkwfxd - I'm sure it can be done, there are universal helmet locks on eBay and amazon, different types where you can bolt on or clamp on bars. Just a matter of finding the right spot to drill a hole to secure the helmet lock down.

This aluminum C section is somewhere in my garage, some local scooter shops when I was riding the bike around were checking it out too, and got my blessings to take this idea and make it a nice part for people to buy.

I'll make a couple when I have some free time, and I'll make a post when I have a couple ready. I'll go get a picture of where it mounts, just to make sure it'll work for you guys.

I removed the reflector on the rear fender and turns out it leaves a hole just perfect for the disk lock.

I haven't had to chance to ride it with the lock mounted there. It'll probably rattle when you ride it. I might add some foam to take up the slack, but so far it seems like a pretty easy ghetto option. lol.

It won't work as well as Tegboi's custom mount and you can't arm the system there, but no fabrication required.

Ciao.
