Anti-theft ideas

Hey guys/gals,

Can you give me ideas on what to do on anti-theft ideas?

Since I'll have a limited edition coming, it could be a theft magnet. Plus, there's no way to replace a snow-check sled.

I know Cats all have the same key and sleds are easy to hot wire. Need your ideas...thanks!

Buy a Yamaha cover... LOL! Oh sorry, this isn't the trash board.. Look through the back of magazines, there are a few different companies that make anti theft devices for sled.

I saw a guy wire a cut off switch to a fake handwarmer toggle. He flipped it when he wasn't riding, making it impossible to start.

Arctic Cat makes a throttle lock with a seperate key! With this you can't start the sled causes it pushes down on the kill switch. It also prevent the throttle from being pushed.

However you could still pick the sled up, throw it in the back of a pickup. Then later use a cutting torch to take the lock off.

Other than that, go get yourself a heavy duty chain and lock!

Just drill a sparkplug sized hole into your gas tank from inside the engine compartment and plug it up. When you have to put the sled away, just unplug and insert one of the sparkplugs from one of your cylinders, and replace with a dummy. When someone tries to start your sled, KABOOOOM!! Just make sure you insure everything from fire.

Install a fuel shut off valve and when your done riding for the day let it run its self out of fuel.....This might buy you some time in the event someone tries to start it up.
