Paso Security

Post by Timpa Nidevo »

As far as I can see there's no immobiliser on a Paso. What alternatives have members used?
GPS tracking? Data dots? Disc alarms? The previous owner of my Paso used a tracking device manufactured by Milwaukee called Tick but that utilises bluetooth and doesn't seem super reliable to me.

Did any bikes have that in the early 90s?! I've got an alarm w/ immobilizer on mine. For short trips I used to have a brake disc lock from a scooter as that has a pin small enough to fit through the holes in the discs. If you want to be really safe you probably best combine a mechanical lock with an electronic system (which has its own independent power source in case the battery connections are removed).

no one will ever steal a 907ie, the first thing a thieve does is dropping it , the suicide stand is a good deterrent already.

then it is heavy and without many grabbing points... someone will ssay "they will push it"... year right , if you dont know what you are doing you will pinch your thumbs netween tank and clipons and then drop the bike, so you are back to swuare one.

and I am not even mentioning that no millenial does even know what a Paso or 907 is...

I'm a millennial and I know what a Paso is.
Motorcycles are easy things to steal, particularly those without immobilisers. That's certainly what my insurance provider believes, based on my premiums.
I think I'll purchase one of these https://monimoto.com. It seems to be an effective and reasonably cheap solution. Does anyone have experience with this device or something similar?

An immobilizer won't help if someone comes and picks it up in a van. If your insurance will grant you better premiums with an immobilizer will they except everyone? I'm asking as some may have a list of systems they approve.
I've heard good things about https://www.sizzapp.com/en lately. It's very similar to the Monimoto tracker but doesn't require a yearly fee.

I'm insured by a company called Shannons which specialise in enthusiast vehicles. In Australia having a security device on your vehicle will lower your premium if you are purchasing any insurance which covers against theft.

I was just trying to make a point...

the Paso series (750-906-907ie) is not a very valuable bike, any thief will focus on recent bikes and leave alone the oldies as they are only worth stealing if they are very valuable which is not our case.

Then if by fitting an immobilizer you can save 75% of the premium , it could be a a good idea, but I wonder how many times will you leave your bike un'attended in the middle of the road?

unless you tie it to a lamp post they will steal it with a van, they always do that, simple and easy, but the 907 is a pig to handle by foot so that make it quite difficult di-per-se.
