Abus Granit Sledg 77 Web Disc Lock
When shopping for a new motorcycle disk lock I wanted a quality lock that would last for years. I looked at the xena lock with the alarm but people expressed frustration that the alarm was too sensitive, and they ended up disabling the alarm and just using it as a standard lock. I looked at the Kryptonite Mini NY U lock, but wasn't confident in the security of the lock, that it could not to be picked.
My decision was this Abus Granit 77, it really is a solid chunk of metal, and serious quality. I've worked for a lock company and I will tell you any locksmith will tell you they just aren't pickable.
*Make sure to measure your disk, you have exactly 45mm between the edge of the disk and the inside of the pin, it won't fit your disk if you need more room than that.
*Not sure why the Revzilla video isn't on the listing

Just buy it already!
You likely spent thousands of dollars on your bike, so let's face it: there's no good excuse not to have a disc lock as a theft deterrent.
This lock is simple and hardy, and comes with a 'memory cable' that serves to remind you not to be an idiot and ride off with your disc lock on. Furthermore, it's a neon yellow color, which gets people's attention and indicates you are invested in keeping your ride secure. I've been using mine for about a year now, and I can tell you the peace of mind alone is worth the price.
Now the disc lock alone won't keep your bike 100% safe, but if you lock your steering column, cover your bike, and are smart about where you keep it, it'll make it a huge pain in the rear to steal - which, in the end, is about the best you can do.

This is an awesome lock. Works on the front or rear brake disk. Replaces a much lighter gauge Krypto. The plastic cover is great for adding extra protection to the finish of the bike's paint if you happen to knock it into the tank or fenders.

Does not fit Triumph Bonneville 2013
Looks like a nice lock (and based on other reviews, it probably is), but did not fit the rear rotor on my 2013 Triumph Bonneville T100, so I had to send it back.

Great heavyweight disc lock
This is a solid disc lock with a study locking mechanism. easy to use key and a secure fit on my bike. You use the key to open and the key to lock it. It has a convenient light on the key to see what you are doing.

So far it's working
This is a heavy duty lock, not easy to put on the disc, especially when it's on my condor, and have to find the right spot.
It's going to be even harder for someone other than me to take off, which is the point. Heavy and sturdy, and an interesting design which contributes to making it as secure as possible.
I hope I don't have to find out.
It's expensive I suppose, but then again so is my ride.

easy to use
This product is very easy to use and I really like the alarm. I live in an area in Maui where motorcycles are stolen often so having this on my bike makes me feel a lot safer. I also use the 1060 chain for added security.

It does its job!
It's a great product and it works! My only quirk is that the security cable/string is a bit short. I couldn't stretch it far enough to reach the handle bar where the brake is located. So when I installed it on my front wheel, I had placed the security string on my clutch side handle bar and forgot it was there(I normally leave it on neutral). I accidentally backed up before turning my cruiser on and made a ding on the front forks. I now place it on the rear rotor and place the string across the seat so I know before I sit, to remove the lock.
