Xena XX-14 Disc Lock with Alarm
Alarm module very loose.
The lock looks great, and will probably be a good theft deterrent, but the alarm module was so loose that it would constantly activate when off the bike (sensor would come out of alignment with the mirror, thereby setting it off). Ended up removing it and using just the lock. Too bad; seemed like a good idea. I really hate futzing with returning things with the chance that the new one will be just as bad. A little miffed...

Overall good item
Overall the lock is good (certainly better than nothing) for security. It does, however, have its flaws. I've replaced the alarm module twice already due to failure (if you contact Xena they will send you a free replacement). If it fails again I might remove it permanently. Also, by fail I mean the alarm goes off on its own, for no reason and at random times.
Other than the alarm, the rest of the unit is quality. Sometimes opening/closing the lock can be tedious, which I believe is due to the double locking mechanism. Also, as others have mentioned the lock does not fit on the rear disc. Removing the front wheel is much easier than the rear; if the option was available you would want to place the lock on the rear disc.
Again, overall this is a good enough cheap alternative to a full security system.

Great lock and customer service!
When I originally received this lock, the alarm didn't work. So i returned it for an exchange. Everything went well. The staff were very helpful and I received my new lock within days. The lock does everything as advertised. Nice and loud when tampered with. I work a lot of OT and had a my helmet stolen when my bike was parked in a parking garage for a long period of time. Now, I'm at ease knowing that I have a great disk lock on my new 2014 Victory. Thank you!
....and I also purshased a helmet lock after that incident.

Won't go through a rear rotor; alarm balky
It's too big to go through the vent holes of the rear rotor on a sportbike, so I ended up using it on the front disc and using an X-1 for the rear. The alarm that comes with it never worked properly. Was constantly arming itself and going off for no reason, so I removed it from the lock.

It works great .... little to great sometimes. I use it at school, mostly it puts my mind at easy. It is surprisingly sensitive which is nice when my last step is putting it on before I leave my bike. Wasn't to thrilled about the price but it was worth it because their is not a huge market for alarm disclocks. Overall would buy again if something happen to my current Xena.

Only downside is that it's a little too sensitive but at least I don't have to worry about my bike getting stolen now.

Right out of the box this disc lock had a corroded and leaky battery. AHHHH! While this is a minor issue " just buy new battery and clean off the corrosion", it still irritated me by sounding the alarm for 15min before I could figure out what was going on. Everything else seems pretty good, I think it will get the job done. Make sure you check the battery before you put it to work. Xena should probably put the battery in separate packaging before shipping. This would be a very good "preventative maintenance" idea! Cheers boys!

Easy to use lock. I love the motion sensor and it is loud. Gives you peace of mind knowing your bike is being guarded.
