Wow I don't know how to break those locks sorry but if I resorted to grinding it off, I would first remove the wheel and then the disc....make up some blocks for a vice and cover as much disc as possible....then grind the lock, or drill if possible
Good luck ......or I guess call a locksmith

the first question is, did it fit on the brake disc easily or did you use some mild force? Did the pin scrape the disc when putting it on? If either of these is yes then the possibility exists that the locking pin is still in the metal on the disc (gap in lock is less than thickness of disc) which is why it won't come off. Also, are you sure you have unlocked it (I know dumb question but even so)? Be careful what sprays you use as some will be detrimental to the brake working effectively. A locksmith may be able to remove the locks barrel facilitating the lock removal.

That is true, it's about $20.....lots of things should actually never be sprayed (with WD40, CRC etc). Probably only available at motorsport shops, do you guys have Repco ?

Try warming it up with a hot air paint gun whilst putting a bit of torque on it

Thanks everyone for your respective takes on this; Russ, I tried the lock to see if would fit however it was on the very outside of the disc and worked fine, I then put it on however moved it right to the inside holes and noticed just a little resistance but still seemed OK; I have since found a couple of posts on other forums and it appears the inside barrells are out of whack and the mechanism is just spinning inside and two possible solutions: Lock smith or grind off

I remember a RIDE Magazine review of these locks wherein their make-believe 'thief' had every disc lock they tested off the disc within ten seconds. They didn't disclose how he did it, but all he had for tools were a length of bar a hammer and a chisel! There are a number of stories/pictures on the web showing these locks in two pieces - some of which claim it simply broke in half when the rider forgot it was on there and tried to ride away.

The casting appears to be hollow in an area critical to its strength (see pics) https://plus.google.com/photos/11727...91392009189297 Maybe drilling/grinding part-way through it and then prising it open with a lever would work?

Before you start grinding,I would remove the wheel and take it to a locksmith.
