Pitlock has bolts for certain types of fork crown headlight mounts. You
need one to lock the mount to the crown, and another to lock the headlight
to the mount. If you're using the B&M CYO mount with the Edelux, this will
work. If you already have Pitlocks, we can order the bolts from Germany
with your existing Pitlock code.
Another solution, which I don't have yet, but will by the end of the year,
are bolts sold by Busch & Müller that use the TORX system, a T20 wrench,
instead of an allen wrench. That will slow down most thieves, and only cost
$8.00, plus the cost of the TORX wrench. But once they know what the bolt
needs, they can get a T20 wrench and come back for the light, if you're
always leaving the bike in the same place. For that, the Pitlock is ideal.
