  • Bike Alarm

    Hi,

    Thought I would share the following link for anyone looking for a motorbike alarm. I spent a bit of time tonight looking into these and this is my top pick.

    Easy FIT Only TWO Wires Motorcycle Bike Scooter Trike Alarm DIY Installation | eBay

    Cheap enough and should do the trick. Ive ordered one already so when it arrives next week I'll check it out and post up my thoughts.

    Pretty easy to rip out too, but it's a start.

      It would still take a bit of time to get it from under your seat though. If there's people in the vicinity of your bike I'm sure any offender would run away if they set it off.
      It looks alright. Doubt it would bring your insurance premiums down though hahaha

        I have considered that my Comprehensive Insurance replaces the need for hundreds of dollars on alarms, disk locks etc. (I'm not sentimental about my stuff) although at under $50- delivered, it probably couldn't hurt. Not sure how long the key fob remotes would continue to work in a heavy downpour though

          If you order directly from their website you'll save a couple of quid on shipping:

          It didn't look that far on the map...

            I was just looking at these Hawk guys last night for different kinds of alarm systems.. My pick of the lot was this one Hawk X 40 Motorcycle Motorbike Quality Alarms Immobiliser UK Design C | eBay

            There are a couple reviews online for these and every time it has been positive. The only review below 5 stars I found was 4/5 because it was too sensitive and screamed at people who accidentally brushed the footpeg while parking next to it. Sensitivity can be adjusted on these ones though, too.


            Might be at another few weeks before I place an order, but they look pretty cool. The added functionality of remote start/stop is a nice show-off feature . May never be entirely practical though.

              It's very practical for me. And I love the reaction from people standing next to it

              The alarm you're referencing is the same as this one, just with a different brand name.

                  Doesnt look that bad, ive currently got the XENA Disk Brake Alarm and that goes nuts if you touch it.
                  If i had that alarm under my seat them it wouldnt be easy at all for them to get at it, most bike seats come off using the key whereas mine is bolted on and is a pain in the left bollock to get off.

                    Yeeah it looks somewhat decent for a basic cheapy. It'll draw attention to the bike if something is going on. I looked at other ones, but cant jystify spending heaps on my old clanger bike. Howcome ur seat us bolted down? Is it busted or just a safety precaution lol

                      I had one very similar on my bike a few years ago, it was super sensitive if anyone even went near the bike. Can't beat the value!

                        Random note. I have a Zena disc lock I'll be selling as I've just sold the steed. Pm me if interested.

                          So the alarm arrived today. Very quick easy to "install" (basically plug and play) and No real set at all apart from adjusting the sensitivity level to what you like.
                          I gave it a really good test for 15 minutes or so and seems to be top knotch.

                          Pros:
                          Easy set up ( 2 wires direct to battery ) and done
                          Cheap
                          Sensitivity adjustments
                          2 x remotes
                          Should fit under any pillion seat
                          Sounds warning before going into alarm

                          Cons:
                          Could be a bit louder and slimmer

                          Over all, very happy and well worth the $50.00 for a little extra piece of mind.

                            My Xena alarm works well for me already, plus full comp will do me.

                            Try getting off the seat before removing it, might not hurt then
