Alarm recommendations
« on: June 07, 2015, 10:32:48 AM »
Hi all,

I'm looking for a decent alarm for my 500F.  I use the bike for work and it is often left outside various places.  I've come back to it a few times to find someone has been fiddling with it - one time it was dropped, another time the main beam was switched on, another the hazard lights were switched on, amongst others.  I'm therefore thinking if I have an alarm, it will at least alert me to people messing with the bike.

I have an Abus alarmed disc lock, but looking for a proper alarm (that won't go off whilst riding or any other nonsense).  Any recommendations? I'm in the UK.

Cheers.

Thanks. That's interesting, the datatool one is the one our local bike mechanic suggested.  I think I'll have a proper look at it.  I don't expect an alarm will deter theives, but I am hoping it will alert me to people messing with the bike.  Why do people think they can fiddle with your bike in a way they'd never do with cars?

i agree no alarm or anti theft device will deter a determined thief if they really want something,but it keeps the insurance person happy, and gives you cheaper insurance, i expect its the local lads admiring you bike,like you say admire it, but DONT TOUCH!! :013:

Scorpio makes good alarms with a proximity sensor option if you want it.

I have a meta 357T alarm and immobiliser on my sv. No problems in 10 years and counting. I didn't bother with an alarm on the X for the "not really a deterrent" reason.
