Lightbulb --> Handle/Brake Anti-theft Lock

Hi, Riders,

Today arrived my anti-theft Lock. It's a new system (don't know how new it is) that I didn't know, but I like the way it works. I don't know if you know it, it SEEMS to be a Brazilian invention (we need to worry a lot about it here).
I'll explain, and attach photos. I apologize if some terms are written strange, correct me, please, my english grammar is rusty:
The name is Tecklock.
Made of aluminium Alloy 6351 with tempera T6.
This lock is installed on the thrust grip and also locks the break lever.
The thief is not able to pull the motorcycle because it's break is activated.
If he cuts the break line, he will not be able to accelerate the motorcycle.
It stays in sight, you won't forget it and ride your motorcycle (like disk locks).
You won't get your hand dirty.

It is an interesting lock, but a little expensive, about U$ 30.

Maker site: Tecklock Componentes.

That is very nice. I haven't seen any like that in the USA.
Thanks for the photos.

Ride safely,

Happy New Year

nice feature.
but in the long run won't it burst the piston brake seal as it's always under high pressure?

I really don't know. The maker says it doesn't.
I don't intend to use it, like, overnight, or for long periods. Just when I have to let it on unprotected places I can't avoid.

Yeah I'd be nervous about putting pressure on the brake system for extended periods. I know people who tie down their bikes for long periods, and in the process compress the suspension for long periods, have troubles as a result.

If it's possible I would adjust it for as little pressure as possible on the brake lever. It doesn't take much to lock the front wheel when the bike is parked.
It looks like a great idea. A bike thief would just move on to an easier target.

I don't think pressure on the brake like that would be of any consequence

I once read an article written by a professional motorcycle thief that now works with police departments.

He stated the only thing that ever stop him were the disc locks. Since the most common method is to roll the bike down the street into a van. That thing about them picking the bike up and throwing it into a van, is a myth. These guys don't like to put the van close to the bike, or even close into that area, because of camera's all over the place these days. So they park the van most often in an area they know free of camera's. Then just roll the bike to the van. All the cables they can cut along with any of the bar locks. Front end locks they just snap over the bars and that will act like a bolt cutter, disabling those front end locks. The disc locks are difficult to pick and lock picking almost another myth, few people have that ability. The first generation aluminum disc locks they were able to snap with a pry bar, the new steel ones they can't screw with.

This new thing they could just cut the brake line and roll the bike. They don't need to power the bike, they just simply roll it down the street. Most often 2am in the morning.

So this brake thing will not work, The steel disc brake remains the best bet.

Actually the professional thief stated that all they are interested in is to part the bike out. They often have someone in another city using Craig's list. So these bikes move several hundred miles over night. Then end up broken down in a garage and the parts listed. Anything with numbers end up buried ASAP, or the steel and aluminum broken and cut up and then sold to a metal recycler, again hundreds of miles away from the location the parts are being sold.

This guy was one of the most successful thief's of all time with motorcycles. He stole thousands using the exact method above. He finely end up caught when he was shot and then beaten unconscious stealing a Harley in a motor home park.

Or better yet just loosen the bleeder screw.

Or hacksaw the brake lever on the left side of the lock.
