I am aware of this question, and I believe the answer there is excellent. But what I'm asking for is the list below and what to make of it.

Some people in my neighbourhood have been stealing gasoline from my motorcycle. (One of my friends caught them red handed the other day, and they fled.) They did it by switching a lever and disconnecting this hose so that they could drain it out into a container.

enter image description here I figure I need some sort of lock. But none of the local shops have this type of lock for my particular model of motorcycle.

So I searched for it online, and I found this list in an online store.

Body Cover
Buzzer
Craush (sic) Guard
Engine Guard
Front Guard
Front Inner Box
Gear Lever
Hand Grip
Pillion Holder
Scooter Body Cover
Tank Cover

Will any of these parts protect my bike from such theft? I have searched everywhere for a petrol lock for my particular model.

If anyone has any other suggestions for how to prevent this, that's welcome too. Feel free to ping me in chat also.

  • It's too bad you couldn't get a locking lever to replace the one which is there. Turn the lever to off, insert key, turn key, no more stolen gas. I'm sure you'd have to have something special made to do it, but it sounds like a good idea :o) ... hopefully @DucatiKiller will be on with some ideas. He's pretty handy in the MC department. – Pᴀᴜʟsᴛᴇʀ2 Jun 5 '16 at 13:19
  • Interesting problem. I wish I had a solution for this. – DucatiKiller Jun 6 '16 at 16:40

You could take the screw out of the center of the knob. Remove it, then put it on only to shut off or turn on the fuel.
