Been thinking of adding one to my bike. Looks pretty straight forward but my dealer says you have to enter a bunch of codes and stuff upon install that only they can do. Anyone installed one before that could confirm or deny that?

I'm not adding a HD alarm. I've been looking at the Guard Dawg and/ or Gorilla Brand.......both make a plug & play & have the Fob that activates / deactivates w/in a certain distance........

Only reason I was looking at an HD one was because a buddy told me most of the aftermarket ones drain your battery.

I installed the HD alarm on my 2010, it was a plug and play; no dealer needed. I have to say that snapping the alarm into its cradle took more effort than I thought it would; I thought I was going to break the catch.

It is loud, and I like it. Sometimes the alarm will chirp when I just jump on the bike and take the bike off the jiffy stand. When you first walk up to the bike it takes a few seconds for the bike to recognize the key fob and then disarm the alarm.

Got any pics of it in the cradle?

are you talking about the hd security in total, or just adding the alarm to the existing security system?

if you're just adding the audible alarm to an existing security system, then the dealer is blowing smoke. nothing to do there but snap it into place, make one plug connection and you're set. probably takes longer to remove the saddlebag so you can remove the side cover.

In my post I was referring to just the alarm, not the total security system.

I'm talking the entire hd security system from scratch.

well, most of it you can do, though the digital tech does make it much quicker and easier. but, the fobs have to be married to the system by the dealer. there is a post around somewhere, and it's also in the manual, on how to do this. you are going to need to keep your bike on a charger, some of the procedure entails leaving the ignition on for 30 minutes before you move on to the next step.

your dealer may charge you the same amount for just marrying the fobs, as they would for installing the system. you should check on that. may be worth it to let them do it all.
