Saw something on the web the other day that slid over the grib then you pulled the leaver back and put a padlock on it. Anti theft device.

My 4-wheeler has a little clip on a hinge that goes between the lever and the master cylinder, I've never seen anything for a motorcycle. Seems a lawsuit in the making for a commercially manufactured item on a motorcycle.

Well, I googled motorcycle parking brake, and quite a few choices popped up. I just did images, didn't go to any sites.
I figured there was something for the rear, especially for trikes, but didn't know about the front brake choices.

As for the 'security device' front brake lock... it is a waste of money... cut the brakeline and push the bike away....

The front brake locks were pretty common on some quad runners, but were integrated into the factory brake lever assembly.

On my '90 FLHTCU Sidecar I had to have a handbrake that operated on the rear wheel, this is in Qld so your requirement will be different.
