Nothing is as good of a deterrent as a decent Lock and Chain, Alarm Combo. GPS does work....... after the fact..... After it's stolen insurance is the best route. Once recovered from tracking it maybe totaled anyway.
Drama is NOT my thing but, I can indeed recommend a lock a chain No freeze/bolt cutter will work on. The price range is a bit absurd for scooter use though. Let me figure out how to post links and pics (this is my 3rd post afterall)
It's just a 139qmb China 50cc. It was working fine untill the battery died. Then, parked in a garage for the past few years. I am just now getting around to it. Today I am draining the old gas as a first step.
I know I need to clean out the tank and carb (sitting for years with fluids from 2012) ( I am familiar with scooter basic repair) ...... Any Hints, Tips, Tricks, or links to get started?
This maybe an ongoing project with a budget of $0.00
As I am new here, take my advice with a grain of salt, Is it possible to take the scoot indoors overnight? Maybe park it in the livingroom for instance? ...if your in an upstairs unit this could be an issue ...
A Brand new scoot is sure to be a target, A trip to HomeDepot is a decent idea.... Pass by the normal lock and chain section for a tow cable instead. Aprox. $25. Twice now I have thwarted overnight robbery with a cable that is simply to strong for Boltcutters. Another $25 for a GOOD Boron infused lock should do you well.
Look into a Wheel lock also... Some have an alarm built in. GPS is a good idea but not so realistic at a budget price (unless you get a prepaid phone)
