The 5k reimbursement if they don't find your bike was enough to allow me to sleep at night with my bike parked on UH campus. With the amount of motorcycle theft I heard about, it seems to be worth every single penny (unless you keep your bike within eye sight or in the garage at all times.

"From its inception, LoJackís primary core strengths and market differentiators have been its use of Radio Frequency (RF) technology, which is proven to be the best technology for tracking and recovery, and the Systemís direct integration with law enforcement agencies across the nation."

If I not mistaken if there is more RF from another source it will drown it out.
Also LOJACK is a stealh system so unless you know it has it, would you know you would have keydown on the system...

LoJack works but if a theif wants it he'll get it...

Just from what I've learned over the years. If a thief wants what u have he will get it. If the thief is smart (well he's still retarded for stealing ), the thief will know how to trace and remove lojack. Bikes are easy to take apart and if u know what uour lookin for it can be removed within the hour. Lojack is still better than nothing. but me personally would get some sort of gps on it so I can track it

my opinion is that it depends on what u want. lojack helps recover after it is stolen. myself would like something that keeps it from being stolen. I the theft the other night, he may have been able to catch them in the process.
having said that, i have the scorpio on my busa which has a perimeter sensor, shock sensor etc that if it goes off sends a signal to your "pager".
what i also want to do is have it wired to my screamer so that it will be LOUD.
i think the best is to have a alarm system that notifies you immediatly then also a lojack so you can call the popo before it is stripped.

what happen when you recovered your bike and it's damaged?

Are you gonna report it to the insurance?


What good is lo jack if you're gonna report it to the insurance?

Maybe for bikes with liability insurance only?

Full coverage insurance FTW.

I wasnt trying to bash the product, I was just wondering why if he had LoJack that there was no recovery, but that was just because he didnt really have it in the first place, and I didnt find that out until after I made the comment. I know its a great protection product, was just wondering what had happened.

Does lo-jack have a battery backup. Say thief stills back gets back to his shop within a hour and disconnects the battery on the bike. In todays time if i was a thief would do it that way.

NVM mind i found my answer

Where does the LoJack get its power from?
The unit obtains its power from the motorcycle's battery. The LoJack unit also has a back-up battery.
back to top



How much power does LoJack drain from my battery?
One milliamp on average.
back to top



Will the LoJack drain my bike's battery?
As with any powered accessory, the LoJack unit will draw power from your battery. We recommend that all motorcycles that have a LoJack installed also have some type of battery maintenance device installed such as a smart charger or trickle charger for periods of infrequent use.

Bud if you read he never said it wasnt working and that was posted a day or so ago, he was trying to con the thiefs. He also clearly stated that it was a trick. Please dont just assume what guys write on here as solid. Not bashing but he jsut had his bike stolen. He was trying something and unfortuanatley it didnt work out.
