Excellent quick deterrent
While not as fancy as the Xena alarm locks or as secure as a chain, this will provide you with a quick and effective line of defense against any would be thieves. A determined one will probably get around it, but it'll prevent a lot of people from getting ideas, even if it's just kids wanting to give it a push. It fits over the rotors on my SV650s well, and combined with another security feature would probably help make it a real pain in the butt for someone to take.

Sturdy, easy to use, small.
- small size fits anywhere for storage
- it's hefty
- rubber cover keeps the keyhole dry
- replaceable keys in case of loss
- reminder cable keeps you from riding off and wrecking the disc
- heavy (debatable as a con)
- I doubt the finish is going to last through too much weather
As far as I can tell, it's a great little lock. It's definitely beefy enough to keep the bike from being ridden away, and the reminder cables make sure you won't do it accidentally. They also act as a nice, bright reminder to anyone wishing to steal your ride that there's an additional hurdle. Comes with 2 keys which are replaceable through the company if you lose them, and a lifetime guarantee.

She is locked up!
This was a must! The yellow is very noticeable! It is very solid and good engineering!

Compact, key is smooth, comes with reminder coil cable.
That's all you pretty much need to know. This is my second disc lock, my first one was an Abus. I will not buy another Abus lock because of the horrible keys that were a plain pain to use, a hassle to try to fully insert, and even another hassle to turn because I had to keep wiggling it to get it to turn.
The Kryptonite on the other hand has a smooth key that isn't giving me any problems. The lock is small, and although it doesn't come with an alarm, that isn't a big deal. For the price point, it is perfect. And you really can't comment on whether the lock will work down the line unless you set up a hidden cam and bait some thieves with it. Oh well.
It comes with the exact same ORANGE COIL REMINDER CABLE that is sold separately for around 8 dollars. I wish Revzilla printed it on the stats, and I jumped the gun and didn't read any reviews or the Q&A which both state that it comes with a reminder, but that is my bad and no one to blame but myself. But I just wanted you guys to know its the same one that is sold separately (If you haven't guessed, I ordered the separate reminder cable).

Strong and yellow
This lock is heavier than you'd expect when looking at it. It's heavy duty and would be a pain to try and break. Also, it comes with an orange reminder cord to attach to your handlebars so you don't drive off and destroy your wheels.

Peace of mind
When I'm far from home and two guys could push my ride onto a trailer while I sleep...a solid block of metal attached to the brake rotor lets me sleep a little easier. I don't know how you'd defeat this unless you picked the lock, it's heavy and there's no access to the pin. I carry it in my tank bag and put it on when I go in for the night.

Does the job!
Although very small this seems to be a very sturdy theft deterrent. It does come with the reminder cable. The keys that come with it are somewhat unnecessarily long.
