Picked up a couple of the alarms on Amazon today while I was at work. Still might swing into RS to pick up the pins though. With all the theft going on lately it wouldn't hurt to have some extra deterrence. Going to hook up my brother-in-laws Crossbones too.

Yet another guy who did this mod and as all have reported before me, it is is very easy and inexpensive. I ended up buying two alarms and the 9-pin connector kit. I mounted both alarms one above the other in the slot under the left side cover. I did not drill holes to use the slot for the original connect, just tie wrapped everything back into convenient places. It works very well and is very loud for sure. Easy, cheap mod. Highly recommended.

Beside the battery back-up, the Siren II has the transmitter and antenna for the pager included in the siren at no extra cost.
Besides, Harley has the alarm system as an optional accessory, not standard equipment (except for the CVO or other High $$$ models). So it would not be expected to have the alarm siren included at no cost.

Some might ride a motorcycle protected with an alarm worth only $6, but I don't.

It has been a setting on the alarm from the original Factory Alarm introduced 2001.
You can set it to always chirp. Or, just when the alarm is activated.
In 2001, when introduced, Harley had Retro-Kits for bikes back to 1997.
I put one on my 1998 Ultra. I set the siren to only sound when activated.
I have it set the same on my 2009 RG.
I don't know if the Radio Shack siren can be set the same.

That means you don't have the siren installed or it is not connected correctly.
The siren is not included with the alarm. It is another accessory to buy.
If you didn't install one, look under the right side panel. That is where is mounted.
If you don't see one, you don't have it.
