I've always been wondering if whether or not I should put an alarm on my bike. I only have liability insurance and I'm always a little nervous if I leave my bike unattended for too long. My bike is consitently stored in my garage and only taken out for track rides and weekend canyon rides. On occasion, I do take my bike out on the town to ride around and be seen and whatnot. Would any of you recommend a bike alarm? My buddy always makes fun of people with little alarms on their bike so I'm a little reluctant. If you think I should get one, what brand would you recommend? thanks a lot!

Scorpio. Checkout the SR-i900. They make a yamaha wiring harness that is plug and play. You don't need to cut your harness to install it. Gorilla makes one also, but I don't trust their quallity and they don't make a harness.

I have one. The Scorpio-i500. I think it's worth it. Just remember, there's NO replacement for theft coverage on a bike. You said you don't have it. You should get it. Immediately. People on this forum have had their bikes stolen from the garage. And it doesn't usually cost too much.

I have the Viper 990 2 way car alarm with LCD screen on mine got it for 120$ off ebay. I am a car audio/security installer i just found all the wires i needed myself and hooked it up under the tank with DEI piezzo sirens. Thing is loud as shit and messed with it for a while to get the sensitivity perfect on it. Also hacked my antenna apart wired it to 12v directly have a good 5 mile range on it.

What im trying to say is you dont need one of those $500 plug and play ones get any car one and they are pretty easy to isntall. PM me if you have any questions ill be glad to help.

Car alarms work too, but is the brain waterproof? Do you have a tilt sensor or perimeter sensor attached? A shock sensor won't always go off if it is rolled off. What about battery backup? They have their ups and downs.

Do car alarms draw more current?

I picked the i900 because a buddy of mine has one. The RFID is nice, don't have to use a fob to disarm or arm it. I didn't want to cut my harness and I've got a friend that sells them. 315 shipped to my door. The only downside is that it's backordered and won't arrive until mid August.

I have the gorilla alarm and have not had any quality issues. You don't have to cut any wires to install it either plus its have the price of scorpio. The only functional difference between it and the scorpio is that it doesn't have a perimeter sensor.

You don't own a Yamaha. Your some punk 15 year old white kid who goes to forums trying to have fun. Your a troll. Look at how you type. You are trying to use ebonics, but yet paid enough attention in school to type correctly for the most part. You also stated "home". Yes you subconciously, just admitted that it is not your place. I bet it is your parents house. You would of put ownership to it if it indeed was your home or house. But you are lying, so we'll just see how stupid you make yourself look to judge that. Get off this forum. You are not welcome! Look at your other posts in other threads and tell me I am wrong. Isn't it past your bedtime child?
