Immobiliser on XR
« on: May 26, 2018, 06:26:45 PM »
Can anyone tell me does the XR have a factory fitted Immobiliser , the reason I ask was following some insurance quotes over the phone and I was asked did it have an immobiliser fitted I assumed it did , but this has thrown some doubt in my mind and need to make sure I give them correct information ...bearing in mind these insurance companies say they are specialists but haven't a clue when you mention the spec of a bike  :174:

I think that they have a factory fitted immobiliser, but not an alarm system, that would be an extra.. :305: :305:

Factory immobiliser as far as I'm aware.

That's right about them being special.
I called up one leading UK bike insurer when I purchased the XR last month and requested a quote, told them what it was and the response was, "so.... that's a BMW 1 series ?"
I hung up quite quickly after that.

The amount of times I have had to contact the Insurance companies to get them to correct their mistakes on the schedule of the insurance is unbelievable!!! They don't listen or they just assume some of the info that you give them, which is concerning if you don't thoroughly check and then had to make a claim.
I am sure they would quickly point out the error on the policy ...but wouldn't admit it was their doing.
Check ..Check and check again the info and small print..... :187:

The cheapest insurance quote I got was through BMW INSURANCE and because of London bike theft I had to be very specific about where and how I keep the bike overnight and while commuting also had to provide photographs to prove it

The XR has a factory fitted immobiliser as standard. The BMW alarm is an optional extra   :305:

Don't get the alarm unless you enjoy setting it off all the time, or like pressing buttons.  It is not supplied with a remote and BMW have stopped allowing dealers to program the K1600 remotes to the XR alarm. (Due to "product differentiation")

Ive had the alarm fitted by my BMW dealer and never had any issues nor did the alarm set off very easily. Had it on my bike 2 years until I sold it and had no issues at all ever.

Alarm will go off if you move the bike or if you are on a ferry or the channel tunnel unless you turn it off first via the set up menu or leave the ignition switched on which I guess is what its supposed to do.

Obviously... but if I send my bike in for service or anything else that I know  that will move the bike enough to set off the alarme than I just switch it off... could be easier to do but takes a few seconds
