U-Lock Underseat Storage
« on: September 24, 2017, 06:58:26 PM »
Just about to take delivery of my lovely new CB500x, can't wait!

I know there's space for a U lock underneath the seat but how big is the space? I was hoping to fit a 300mm Abus lock under there.

Anyone fit a larger lock under there before?

Thanks for any advice!

Hi I'm not to sure but I think only the one Honda sells as an extra fits
The space correctly ? Cheers Phil

Hi,

Mmh, a 300mm U-Lock will never fit in there.

Plus, when I got my CB500x, the seller told me not to buy the U-Lock from Honda because removing the seat isn't very convenient. Indeed, I don't remove it very often on mine, but when I do, it's true that I wouldn't want to do it everytime I park my bike.

Personnally, I have a 270mm U-Lock that I attach on the side of my bike with an adapted mount. It's the most convenient way to carry it in my opinion.

To use your lock good tip

Hey guys sorry to hijack your thread. Is a U-Lock as good as a chain? I don't want to get a top box so having to carry a heavy filthy chain in my back pack. A U-Lock with the 3rd party attachment sounds like a good solution?

Cheers

Well, as far as I know, a U-lock is more complicated to break than a chain and it's usually what's recommended by insurance companies. You add the mount I showed earlier and you're good to go !

If you leave your bike on the streets, the best would be to add a chain to the Ulock so that you can tie it to something on the street and make harder to steal  :016:
