I found one on ebay that I used for a starting kit.

It was 65 before shipping. has a remote w a 2 mile range(easily verified at lunch 1 mile away) w a silent and siren mode. Flashing lights, auto rearm or passive arming when key is turned off. The manual kill switch for the alarm is programmed from 3 to up to 33 presses before holding the button to code how many are needed to bypass the alarm. Has a remote start option, the key chain vibrates and makes noise when bumped. On the lowest setting if someone so much as moves it or bumps it the remote goes off.

Comes w enough wiring to mount each individual piece scattered around the bike.

W the general set up, all you need to do is tap into power, ground and kl15(key on signal) to have the alarm function.


I would almost be willing to wire up the basic set up mentioned above to anyones bike. The Honda has it already, has an audible caliper lock for the front, rear cable lock and front wheel is locked to a tree(when I have to leave it outside vs my friend's garage. That is all preventative. LoJack and Full coverage incase the bastards do infact get it without leaving a blood trail from wounds.

I have the Scorpio i900 with back-up battery and plug n play harness. It is a nice system, but somewhat pricey.

I think shipping was like 15 or 20; got it in 3 days from time of order.



The whole idea for me is protection and entrapment. I almost want to get the lowlifes jonesing enough to take it so they are caught. Sorry; guess I am still having withdraws

You already have lowjack and full coverage, there is only so much you can do besides not riding it into the ghetto and pulling it into your apt at night.

Any car alarm could be adapted to work for a motorcycle and be just as effective if not more. Just have to seal it up nice and tight. Or mount it where it wont get wet.

Mine has a scorpio alarm on it, and its decent. Its just something to make some noise if its messed with. Not gonna stop it from being stolen..

Edit out burn

Get a garage at your apt and park it in there at night and get a daily driver. If someone wants your bike they will take it regardless of a little alarm, I guess people will take ugly bikes too. You really have the best things you can between the lowjack and full coverage. I guess if you really have to have something on there that beeps go for it but I guess go for it

Personally, if it's the Houston area you're worried about, I'd get LoJack. LoJack's not gonna keep it from getting stolen, but the recovery rate is awesome.

I have a Scorpo i900 on mine, but that's because I'm not worried about it in Houston. It's in my garage, or right beside me at the classroom.

I was worried about it in the small towns I travel to when it's sitting outside of a motel room. I needed something to give me a heads up to get the gun.

I use my other cell phone. I hide it in the bike. Thieves use devices to find Lojack or GPS but with the phone, the GPS does not activate until you access it. I know they will eventually find it but not at least til I get a fix on the bike's last location and hope its where they are stripping it down.

With Early Warning, LoJack alerts you as it's being taken.
