Alarm
on: September 11, 2018, 01:06:13 PM
Hello guys.

Does anyone has an alarm installed? If so, witch one? And characteristics?

I'm considering installing one in my 2017 CRunner but would like to know opinions and feedback.

Personally I wouldn’t bother with an alarm - they’re more trouble than they are worth.  If you need something for insurance purposes or for peace of mind then get a gps tracker fitted. If it’s just to create some noise (as long as you can hear it as no-one else will take any notice) if anyone has a go at stealing it then use something like an alarmed disk lock.

Cheers,
Jon

Hi.
Exactly, i don't know if it is the best option.
Maybe a disk lock with alarm would be enough.

Because i want to create noise so they be alarmed and call the atention of the people in the sorroundings.

I fitted a Datatool Evo Motorcycle Self-Fit Alarm before doing my trip to Spain, costs around £80. It's simple to fit, goes under the front seat ok, 2 wires to battery and with a blinking LED which I fitted in a suitable place on the throttle side of the rear seat panel near the grab handles. If it all goes wrong just pull the fuse!
It operates if moved from side or centre stand, or if an attempted engine start.
I wanted it as a comfort if bike was parked outside say a hotel room.
Cheers
Don

Beware of the >2015 models when fitting alarms. I fitted a scorpio on my 2015 and blew a LED indicator as somehow, the output voltage as too much from the alarm system. Replacement in Singapore cost me S$160! I have the alarm fitted now but not connected to the indicators.
