Today is my bikes first day locked outside of my garden, and i have thought about it for a while. This is my solution.

BTW, I like your idea of locking the kickstart to the frame & disabling the button. Over here in the states that'd usually be enough deterant to keep thieves at bay, but I've heard horror stories of pikeys breaking into garages, picking/breaking locks & lifting cycles out over cars that were in the way! You guys definatley have it rough with thieft over there.

I would do as the other guys have suggested, or get a disk lock. Just make sure it's a damn good lock.

And yeah, bike thefts are pretty rampant here. However you see plenty of brand new sportsbikes parked on the street without so much as a disk lock, which should make my bike a little safer. Maybe i should get some dt125 graphics to make it even less desirable....
And we feel the bike thefts in the insurance:
for my bike 26 yr old, new licence, 1yr no claims:
3rd party only insurance: £280/yr
3rd party fire and theft: £900/yr
riding an uncorked WR450 past parliament: priceless
I went with 3rd party fire and theft.
