As some idea's posted in the above link I think.
Some of us were thinking About bolting the seats
in the forward position and maybe installing
A quick disconnect steering wheel. As for alarms I would look into
Alarms that have perimeter alarms, like if someone reaching in it.

Interesting problem. With a Spyder they have a Digitally Encoded Security System which means you need the key if you want to start it. Additionally the wheels can be locked to one side so if you think you are going to push it away you will only go in circles. I would hope that Polaris had thought this through.

Honestly, most people couldn't start a Spyder with the key because there is a non intuitive launch sequence that only Spyder owners would know.

Agreed. The spyder has a very humorous start sequence. I'm thinking it's going to be like anything else. You can get some deterrents together, but if someone wants it they will take it. Similar to doors on a house.

With digital keys and ECUs there is no excuse for a manufacturer to not make it virtually impossible to start the machine without the key. Anybody know if the SS key is digital or old school bumpy stick?

What is the start sequence for the SS? Does it have a "real" key or wireless key or no key or something else?

There is an option for a security code from the factory. You need the right key and have the option of the code to supplement your SS security. With the code in place you can turn the key and get power, but no ignition.

Bumpy stick in U.S.

The Canadian models have a security system built into the ECU, nobody has answered how to enable it on U.S. models. Dealer has no clue it even exists. Shop manual has no info. either.

Having the ignition switch in my hand couple months ago (tying to cover water entry holes) I do not believe it to be anything other than a bumpy stick switch.

Aftermarket money to be had.... :D
I would buy that... Even if Polaris offered it as an accessory at a reasonable price.... Want happen but one can dream.
