I was a certified installer Of Viper, Prestige alarms. I can say this an alarm only keeps a honest person honest. Most people can disable them in seconds, with that being said I love the aspect of teh lojack system, Now I dont know about the GPS, can anyone link it.

GPS will lose signal inside of a building, RF signal is better in that sense.

With a 97% recovery rate in the first 24 hours and a 99.8% recovery rate period, apparently the thieves are NOT finding Lojack.

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.

Most people cannot afford full coverage insurance.
Also, if you have a lot of mods done to your bike full coverage insurance typically DOES NOT PAY YOU for the value of your accessories.

Don't believe me? Ask Mr. Richards on here how his experience went with State Farm even though he paid for extra insurance.

, I see it all of the time on regular bikes, the insurance companies pay what they THINK the bike is worth, not necessarily N.A.D.A., often times 20-30% less than NADA.

Most bikes recovered are not damaged at all or are just lightly damaged.
Most of the bikes are stolen for their parts, so it's not in the thiefs best interest to damage them.

If I didn't have full coverage, I'd rather have a slightly damaged bike back than no bike at all.

Plus unlike insurance, Lojack is a ONE TIME CHARGE.
No monthly charges, no monitoring charges, etc.


Lojack with Early Warning is $799.00 installed.
Yes there are other products out there, but IMO, Lojack is still the best performing with a proven track record.

i have lojack on my z06, and let me tell you, i managed to find it while rebuilding the while rebuilding/wiring the whole car, and it is nothing simple for a theif to find, i dont know about bikes, im sure its fairly simple, but on a car, but on a car, all i can say is goodluck


How good is that GPS recovery system going to work once the thieves have removed it? If it is that easy to find a Lo Jack system, it can't be much harder to find the GPS system.


We all take the chance of having our motorcycles stolen, that is part of owing one. Lo Jack is confident enough in their product to reimburse you the investment you made if their product does not work. Plus take it a step further and reimburse you some of the value of the bike if it is not recovered at all. I don't personally know of any other tracking system that offers anything like that.

IMO customer service and statistics are two things you need to look at when purchasing a product like this. I think 99% recovery and the warranties they offer speak for themselves.

Again this is just my opinion. ANY tracking system is better than no tracking system at all.

None that I've seen.
I keep mine in a 900ma battery tender anyhow to help preserve the life of the battery, but I've got friends who leave their bikes in the trailer for up to a month between events and have no issues.

ive tested lojack a few times... and i must say the unit alerts really quick and is very effective at waking my up... plus if i see their number i know wtf the call is about before i even answer it so i run to the bike gun in hand lol needless to say bike will never be lost unless im too far away from it when it sets off and in that case i call the popo's right away and boom they are busted...

plus the system calls multi-numbers and emails and all sorts of to get your attention, and all my other contacts had the information on the card and if they dont get an answer on my phone, they will call the cops for me. better safe than sorry!

all you people are talking about a theif having your bike for an hour.. forget that, i know WAY before than if they have my bike and i can call and contact the police and have them looking for it within a matter of min's... so they wont have time to take it anywhere to rip it apart.

Not bashing lojack, but like romeo said, if a thief wants it, he's getting it. I've seen the lojack system. It does run off your main battery, but also a backup 9v supply. Not much for insurance, IF a thief knows where he's looking. Most thiefs are pretty much idiots and use the smash and grab technique over a smarter one. Better thing than lojack, IMO, would be to have theft on your bike. That way it pays for at least the value of your bike, sans the extras. But unfortunately that's how things have to be done now-a-days. Especially if you dont have a garage to lock it up in.....

No one is saying to have Lojack instead of theft insurance, but as an addition to it to protect against loss.


And once again: With a 99.8% recovery rate in the last 3 years, APPARENTLY THE THIEVES AREN'T FINDING IT.


Can't argue with their track record.

That's because 99.8% of thieves are retards.....

Lojack coupled with theft insurance would be the preferred method over all others....

how about setting up a saw-esque trap when you park it...that'll deter them thieves! Just remember to disarm it before you get on it.
