Xena XX-14 Disc Lock with Alarm
So Far So Good
I haven't had the lock/alarm long enough to see if I'll have any of the same problems some other reviewers have had (false alarms, etc) but so far the unit works well. The finish is a little rough, almost like it was made by hand which is a bit odd, but it's definitely beefy and as good as any disc lock out there.
This only fit on my Aprilia, and was too large for my Honda (XR650L)- the pin was too big to fit through any of the holes in the disc. I got a smaller model for the Honda.

Pricey, but loud and seems very solid
Very sturdy, only had it for a couple weeks but it seems durable. It is quite loud and easy to use, but you only have 5 seconds from when you touch it to when you must have it unlocked, so its like diffusing a bomb each time. Its fun.

No problems thus far, sturdy and loud when it goes off.
As a note this would not fit on the rear disc of my Ninja 300, only the front. It would hit part of the wheel before making clearance on the rear.
On my 2013 ZX6R it fits on the rear disc fine.
(Rear being the better option according to a former bike thief who posted on another site.)

Built like a tank. This is a solid hunk of stainless. I feel much more secure leaving my bike out. Easy on easy off. Received package in a timely manner. Alarm is loud but not ear splitting. Thanks revzilla!

Pease of Mind
I purchased a Xena XX-14 lock because I planned on trailering my motorcycle from Florida to New Jersey, and I wanted some extra security when I stopped overnight at a motel. The
Xena XX-14 lock was just what I wanted. The lock installs easily and the alarm is adequate. I have given this item a overall rating of good, because I wish the alarm was a little louder and I want to see how well the durability of the lock is over time.

Keeps everyone away from your bike
A great security asset to have. It fits right into my backseat compartment. I just wrap a cloth around it and wedge it to keep it from going all over the place. Very easy to place on the disc and as long as you have some common sense its not difficult to take off before the alarm goes off (the alarm beeps 3 warnings before it goes crazy for 15 seconds). Its warded off the campus police in my college. I watched it from the window, he accidentally kicked the tire and decided the that it wasn't worth standing at a screaming alarm to write a ticket for being in a "non-parking spot". Granted, its not 100% secure, but a theft willing to steal a bike that has this alarm system, is going to have his hands full.

It locks to your disk
The lock works as advertised. The alarm doesn't really sound that loud when you are outside, but its annoying enough to deter. But, just like my Club for my car, it is a meant to make stealing your bike a enough of a pain in the axe that the lazy thief decides to walk on to a vehicle that's easier to steal.
