Default Lock?

How do you lock up your dirt bike? Short story, just picked up the dirt bike and currently live in an apt building. My bike is fine as it has a key, but the dirt bike is kick start. How would you recommend I keep it safe? And sticking it in the apt isn't a viable option yet.

Obviously get a chain, but if you want more than that, or can't afford to go buy a chain and lock right now, turn the fuel petcock to "off". Disconnect the wire that feeds your sparkplug, anything you can do to keep some little 16y/o dirtbag (like I used to be) from gripping up your bike for a ride. Little things like that won't help if you're visited by a professional, but a professional, isn't gonna want your dirtbike anyway

Yes there is a thread, I was curious if there was an alternative that I wasn't thinking about.

depending on what year it is, you could use a caliper lock?
that wont stop someone from lifting it into a truck and jack it, but atleast no one could push it away lol.
id do a combination of both, chain it and use a caliper lock.

Make sure to get a chain/lock that is resistant to bolt cutters or a hack saw.
