The 650R is streetlegal in Europe also...

You can disconnect the kill-switch and replace it with a OEM Honda ignition key (from a mopped ....).It's just a plug-in :cry:

I wonder if the steering lock can be adapted...

I would not worry too much about the steering locks; I just had my second dual sport stolen... XR650L few years ago from my mother’s front yard and my DR650 3 days ago from the Gym... Both had the steering lock ON and were in nice neighbor hoods. I am running out of good ideas I don’t know if 2 guys just throw the bike in a Truck or if the key/fork security is just easy to get around. I am working on a delay relay that will lock the front tire up after 60mph is reached if you don’t have authorsation code. :cry:

The steering lock in the stem is intergral with the stem. Dont waste your time, looks like a lot of work and thet are not very strong anyway.

so I reckon the best method is to chain it to something, what a pain in th neck on a regular basis, I guess for quick jaunts to the store a hidden kill switch would suffice.
