Australian Insurance Association Research showed that if a motorcycle has a cover over it, theft is reduced by 170% automatically. This means that subconsciously, thieves target a quick juicy opportunity.
A cheap cover already helps (adding to the standard advice of parking well lit places, etc...).
Provided no one steals your cover... mine for stolen the very night I put it on my bike!
Kindly read thru at least the intro section first before decide to post any comments.... thanks...
Please proceed to this website/web link if you guys have any technical issues on Kawasaki Kips/KR150, I'll update the 1st POST as and when there's a new question. Newbies questions on the top as well.
Agreed with that a covered bike is safer, and prevent others from doing anything to it.
OT a bit about cats. Our neighbourhood cat, Felix, likes to jump on top of my Blades's seat and sit there gazing the carpark empty spaces, I don't know why he prefer this slight inclined position as the Blade is almost always on its side stand. He should have chosen my plushier Vespa instead which I tried to lure him over but unsuccessful.
On the first day of getting the bike, he left his claw mark on the seat. Nothing too obvious, just a faint one liner. Obviously, I was a little furious at first, but Felix easily purred and meowed me into submission while he rubbed his face on my legs.
So after reading this I might as well get a cover as well.

the other day saw splash paint over bike then the rest of the bike around all kana some splotches, best to just get a cheap one off amazon/ebay la, for a piece of mind.
think about the thousands spent on bikes.. what is a few tens to protect it... same concept as phone lol
If possible, just move your bike from the current parking spot and park it somewhere safe like your building compound or put a cover on it or else just park it somewhere else other than your normal space. If possible park it a bit away from ur house for some days and after that you can park it at your regular place.
