KTM 690 Enduro Security

I'll be taking delivery of a 2015 KTM 690 Enduro on May 28. I live in a "seedy" section of Oakland Ca and will have to park my bike outside. I've already purchased Protector 16mm High Security Hardened Boron Steel chain with Squire lock. And also a Xena XX-10 disk lock.

I originally thought that I would be able to put the chain through this section of the frame. But after getting the chain in, I'm unsure if this beefy chain will fit through that section.

This leads me to think an anti-pinch pin is my next best option. I'm just not sure what size to get.. I don't want to get the bike home to find out the chain will not fit and have to leave the bike outside unsecured while waiting on the parts to arrive.

Can someone with a 690 Enduro please measure the width of the frame in that section? (leaving an inch on each side).

Thanks in advanced

Just found my answer: KTM LC4-based bikes fine with 390mm Pin (640, 625, 660, Duke, probably new
690)

Another big security plus is a bike cover. 'out of sight, out of mind'. Doesn't have to be special, just go below the motor to hide the make/model. Would you walk up to a covered bike to steal it and look under in case it was an old 500ex Kaw 'beginner' bike? It would also hide your chain and locks.
