How To Protect Your Royal Enfield From Theft
The video has been uploaded by a YouTuber who keeps coming up with such content to help fellow bikers. At the beginning of the video, he shares a clip where a person is seen breaking the handle of the bike and switching it on by connecting the wires directly. This is what the thieves do. However, the YouTuber shows that this can easily be avoided if you remove the 15 A fuse from the fuse box located inside the toolbox. Post removing it, you could carry it safely with you or lock it inside the toolbox itself. This cuts off the power to the engine completely. Now, the YouTuber shows that even if the thief connects the wire directly, the bike won’t start.

To prove his point further, he even puts in the key and tried to start the bike. No matter what you do, the bike won’t start before putting the 15 A fuse back into its place. The thief will need to break into the toolbox first to connect it which is almost impossible. One can’t really break the toolbox of any bike that easily. Hence, you could discourage the thief from attempting to steal your bike. The YouTuber has been deploying this trick for over 6 years without any side effects. Once you come back to your bike, simply plug in the fuse and the bike will start as normal.
