What are you doing if anything about securing the Ryker when out and about? There is no steering lock and the parking brake is just a flip. I was looking into maybe a good quality disc lock. Wanted to see what others are thinking before I decide. Thanks.

That is a very good question. :bowdown:

Seems it would be a little too big to roll into a trailer to steal like a bike.

Don't see the need to lock a wheel as an issue for a Ryker or Spyder.


You could always get a long padlock and run it through the disc. probably a bunch less money.
Or a bike cable and lock through the rear wheel to the swingarm.

Our 2015 RT-L, I can lock the wheels/steering by turning the bars fully left or right then removing the key. You can't ?

No key, got a fob

Guess not.
He says "there is no steering lock", hence the question.
And he is talking Ryker, not Spyder.

i would think that a simple way would be to use a bicycle "cable" style lock thru the rear wheel and around the swingarm

The problem with Disc Locks: you'll eventually forget to remove it, and end up damaging the Disc... :yikes:
Park it where you can either keep an eye on it, or where you can use a cable lock, and tether it to something solid.

I can see it now.
Spyders and Rykers chained to bike racks and street light poles all over town.
Followed by law suits filed by 9 year-old kids who had their bikes stolen because all the parking spots were taken :hun:

Look by the parking brake lever and you will see a location for a lock as Can Am puts locks on them for different markets. I would think the parts would be available from Can Am.

Think BRP relying too much on that fob, it may be the solution for the DESS. Ive yet to test drive one & learn ALL about them. Disk locks with alarm & a cable should help some but still add the risk of damages if forgotten, Ryker still in infancy only time will tell. Maybe as Lamont gets back up to speed & creativity the simple solution will come to light.

Those fobs have been working for years in their snowmobile lineup... :thumbup:
Without it: those machines will absolutely NOT start.

You are exactly right. it looks like a lock will slide over the parking lever which will effectively not allow it to move. That will lock the rear wheel. Problem soon solved by BRP accessory.

All good & fine for that & not as easily accessible or moveable as the smaller Ryker will be in town

It's looking more and more like good insurance is the answer.

A determined thief or vandal is going to do their stuff...locks or not.

BRP does not list a lock as an accessory. The manual states the parking lever lock is not available on North America models.
The lock actually has a pin that extends into the parking lever to secure it (I had a chance to look closely at the bike before I bought it yesterday). A regional sales rep was there and he could not tell me why the NA models did not have one

For my 2 wheelers, I bought an inexpensive DISC lock on ebay incorporating bleeping alarm on touch, also came with bright yellow springy tether so you don't forget and drive off, although cheap you'd have to be superman to break it.

Dixie is the 28 year old Boa; we have had her since she was two days old. She is very gentle and gives really good hugs.

Insurance never works quite as intended… You'll never be adequately compensated for the loss. (once you figure in aggravation, time spent on the phone, time spent figuring out what was actually lost, and it's value, the feeling of violation for the loss... :gaah:)

In all seriousness I think a simple firearm cable lock would go around a spoke and tie rod end and stop simple roll off.

I installed the lock, I know its not 100% but it gives some security. Its only $15-$20 shipped online. 169361169362

So that secures the P brake? Assuming a post comes out, preferably a hook that goes over & back

What's that lock exactly? Do you have a link?

Bfromla, it's a larg post that fits into a pocket on the P-Brake. I pulled on the P-Brake and unless you pry or brake the handle it will not rotate. Everyone knows if someone wants to steal your ride they will.

WiliamTRyker here is the link for the part. the install was easy. just unscrew the bottom of the cover and pull up and slide the lock into place, oh, you will need some 5m,1.0 or 5m,0.8 screws to mount it. i used a step drill bit to cut the hole out.

This looks like a really good idea. Might be a good option for dealers to add

Apparently, this is on Rykers for Outside North America. I just looked at page 14 of the newly updated owners manual.
It shows this lock system.

I sent my dealer the part number and pictures and they said they would start stocking them and may include some as an option for the rykers in stock.

@Ravent25 Thanks for posting this. I didn't even know this was an option for the US market. Seems easy enough to do and the price is good.
