    Alarm Question
    on: August 11, 2021, 03:54:29 pm

    Bought a used bike - in the spec on the advert for the bike it says "anti theft alarm".

    The bike needed a new battery which is now fitted which is 8Ah - however in the manual it states that a bike with an alarm (DWR) needs a 10Ah battery. The question is how do i tell if my bike has an alarm, that might sound a stupid question but i am assuming that if there is an alarm it will activate when the steering lock is locked - which may be incorrect - are there tell tale signs like wiring to the battery itself - a flashing light etc, a separate remote for the DWR...?. It maybe that the bike only has an "immobiliser" ... which they have described as an alarm  :027:. Thanks

    The girlfriends bike has an alarm fitted, but it has never been activated.
    Judging by your questions you have not bothered to read the manual.

    You might laugh, but if you read the manual you would see a picture of the alarm under the seat. So simple.
    The manual is available online and you can download it, for free, onto your computer or phone much quicker than asking a question on here.

    Dead simple, give the bike a rock without the key in the ignition. the alarm will go off if fitted, its very sensitive. But I am guessing you will not have an alarm because as soon as you disconnect the battery it goes off. Also when you install the new battery it goes off until you switch the ignition on. However if the alarm has been unplugged then it won't work. Simple check, under the seat towards the rear is a module about 150mm by 75 mm with a multi plug in the top on the right hand side and dummy multiplug hole on the left. that is the module.
    What could possibly go wrong!!

    On the Gen 1 and Gen 2 you can enable/disable the alarm in the bikes menu settings plus set workshop mode/automatic enable and things like that from memory.  Peter
