Question Alarm install question

So, it seems that I will be picking up my new bike eariler than expected. However, it may be that I'll be picking up my bike just before the weekend. Which means I won't have all of the things I want installed until Monday but I really want to ride over the weekend. Ok so, is it terribly difficult to install an alarm? I'm somewhat tech savy and would be willing to pay and have the dealer check my work and even re-install it to make it more clean if need be. I installed a gorilla alarm on my old Honda but that alarm was not as advanced as the one I am going to put on my new bike. The installation wasn't a big deal but my new bike will have a lot more electronics on it. What is the likelihood that I mess something up? I've searched countless forums and my particular alarm does not seem to be that difficult to install. I'm just being cautious I guess.

Not too bad, if you're comfortable with wiring I'd say do it.

Hey Patrick. If I stopped by your shop on let's say, Saturday, would you be able to do it in a day? I mean assuming you don't have already something you are already working on.

LOL, already in the works! My problem is that I won't be able to get that done until tuesday of the following week (closed on mondays). I have a few things that I can install myself but the added protection of an alarm is worth the money and effort in my opinion.

Alarms do act as a deterrent, mostly against the casual thief and kids. Even Lojack is no guarrantee.

Still, making your bike a less inviting target is often enough to help keep you bike yours.
