Hey, I am currently looking to buy a trail bike here in Costa Rica as a commuter and countryside explorer (I realize my spine may take a beating on long rides - I am OK with that). I went to the Yamaha dealer today and sat on the 2012 and 2014 WR450f. They both felt great, much better than the Honda's. But there is a big problem... No key, just a start button. Its a cool idea, but leaving a brand new Yamaha 450f parked on the street in Costa Rica is not a very good idea. 80% of the motorcycles here are Chinese knockoffs, so Japanese and Euro bikes really stand out. Plus as a 6'3" white American with buzzed hair, there are those that may be more inclined to target my bike (99% of the Ticos, as they are called, are extremely hospitable and kind. I have only encountered a TINY minority with extreme nationalistic views.) Parking at work would't be a problem since we have guards, but leaving it parked outside a mall, for instance, is not as secure, let alone parked outside a small restaurant on the street.
So, are there any aftermarket options to make a WR450f more secure? Failing that, are there any other DIY options you can think of? Any thoughts/ideas are helpful at this point since my other top options would be Euro bikes and have a higher repair and parts premium here. Thanks everyone.
