Anywhere to secure a chain to on the 1050 (excluding wheels)?

(1/3) > >>

hipponax:
If a chain merely goes through a wheel then even with a ground anchor this can be problematic whats the best way to deal with this ? longer chain (downside is more leverage for a thief) or is there a point on the 1050 chassis where a chain can pass through? The chain I would be passing through is 16mm

tiggersteve:
what about thru the hole in the swingarm that the shock goes thru,

mjgt:
I think that hole is full of shocker  :084:

Shocker hole would be a PITA, but anywhere else would not be really secure - forks, exhaust, luggage rack...
Most secure is through back wheel and over the seat if no anchor. I use a wall mounted anchor so chain is off the floor so helps protect against bolt cutters, but to be honest, if I was a bike thief I would use an 18v grinder with slitting disc - not a chain on the market would last a minute against that.
