    It was posted on another forum, but nobody seems to know where it comes from.

    Looks like some kind of security system, huh?

    You mean an airbag disconnecting system? Could be, but it seems a strange location for that.

    I wonder if it's one of those transmission locks used overseas, like the multi lock (made by an Israeli company, IIRC). In many countries, LC's are hot items, so getting an engine/tranny lock is the defacto standard. Like us getting alarms or cell phones.

    Yes, that is an aftermarket transmission lock. Popular overseas.

    Never heard of a tranny lock. Interesting... And makes sense too.

    When I first looked i hadn't scrolled down far enough and didn't see the key, and I thought you must have been talking about the lower vent, and thought to myself, doesn't everyone know it's a ball cooler?

    It's interesting that the Japanese cruiser web sites are chock full of various theft prevention devices. Auto thefts and burglaries must be a much bigger problem there.

    In the third world I understand the problem but suprised to see that in Japan.
