And I know these things aren't cheap but guys, think about this. Would you rather spend $400, or lose your bike. I'm not saying an alarm system is 100% foolproof, but it could definitely help with lowering the rate of thefts.

Ex:http://www.solomotoparts.com/Scorpio...FUWo4Aods1oALw
I have that alarm system on my zx6r. I kinda freaked out after my gixxer was stolen a few years back, so when I bough the ninja a few months later, I had the scorpio AND lojack installed.

What you get to realize though is that neither offer a significantly big discount for insurance (in my case at least), and for the total cost you might as well get theft insurance only with a zero or low deductible.... unless you feel your bike is irreplaceable...

But if you are considering an alarm system, that is one of the best, imo.
*The rfid remote has quite a long range, and it even tells you what triggered the alarm (shock, ignition, tilt etc.).
*The perimeter sensor is a nice touch but you will get to disable it eventually cause it's annoying; every time you park where people walk by (without touching the bike) the alarm gives a small warning and then goes off....
*A small piece of advice, if you buy it, keep the remote in your pocket and NOT with the bike key like I've seen some people do. That way if someone takes the bike from you while its running, you have one mile radius to pull the remote from your pocket, kill the engine and trigger the alarm. Plus I'm sure the remote won't take it too well if its constantly banged from the wind...
*Amazing customer service if you have questions/issues.
