You would think that this kind of news would create an uproar of frustration. I guess the American consumer is used to being screwed.

I spent hundreds of dollars on the damm things, only to find out that because of the flaws in their product and the publicity about the failure of it, all of us who depended on it have been duped!

Hey Kriptonite, how about a refund!!!

Yeah, that would be the day.

Default Great Scott!

Dear Motorcycle Online:



Personally, I'm pleased to find out that Kryptonite has a fatal weakness.



Sincerely,

Superman

I guess we will have to see how "sizeable" the rebate will be.

I don't own any of kryptonite's ***** but if I did and no longer had the bill of sale or proof I bought it, that would suck. They made the *****, let them fix it.

Good information, thanks. I have a Xena alarm lock. Not good. It will not even fit on my "very exotic" Bandit 1200's front disk and it is a real struggle to get it on the rear disk. One of the last times I uesd it, it started beeping for no reason and resisted all my attempts to shut it off, even after I removed it from the disk. It beeped 'till the batteries went dead. Not recommended!

I have a Xena as well, and have been relatively happy. The unstoppable beeping you refer to is actually a low battery condition. Replace the batteries and it should work normally again. That is the Xena's main weakness--it eats batteries. I'm lucky to get 1/2 a riding season out of a set, and I don't use the lock very often since I have a garage and a relatively safe place to park at work. The battery issue is made worse if you leave the lock out in the temperature extremes as I do. A 110 degree garage doesn't do your motorcycle or alarm batteries any favors.


Can't help you with the fitment problems...

Dig that Magna sound...



Fook'n eh. The KZ1000 was one fast mutha in the right hands. The LTD was kind of goofy though, with those big swept-back bars...and that stepped seat.



Once I parked next to a bunch of Harleys on Melrose in West LA...and after about 20 minutes, they actually moved all their Hogs! Ha ha...



I was watching the original Godzilla on the tube late the other night, and right before I passed out, I heard Raymond Burr yell "I MUST TALK TO DR. SERUZAWA!"



Now I know...
