Getting ready to do a cross-country trip in a week. My dealer always installs the alarm siren on their new bikes, but my '17 was a trade from another dealer and didn't come with it. I went to one of the other local dealers to check around for anything I may need for the trip and decided to pick one up. The parts guy insisted that installation at the dealership was important because it is an 'electronic' part and self-installation could be a warranty issue. What a total crock of horse shit. I asked to see the instruction sheet and it looked easy enough. As it turns out, on the newer bikes it's even easier yet. You simply plug it in to the empty slot that is there for it, plug the lead in that is next to that open spot, and put a strip of velcro on the frame and place the antenna wire between it. Total install time was less than 10 minutes.

I'm not the brightest bulb in the box when it comes to this stuff, so if I can do it, you can also. Now I know there are other options, such as the radio shack route, but part of the reason I wanted to go with this one is I already have the pager from my previous bike, which mates to this particular siren.

Hey man, I am going through the same ideas about an alarm. My bike came with an alarm but I want a better one. The one that was recommended to me was the scorpio. I am looking into it and like what I see.

Has motion sensor
Kill switch
rechargeable battery
battery backup for the alarm
some other stuff.

The Scorpio SRi900R Security System is a hands free security system featuring an FM remote receiver, Three-Stage Perimeter Sensor and Remote Ignition Disabler. The Remote Ignition Disabler allows the user to remotely cut off the engine in case of hijack or “hot wiring” while the Programmable Perimeter Sensor with warn away detects motion around the bike, protecting saddlebags, luggage and other accessories.

By incorporating RFID, the system is able to know when the remote is in range, allowing the user to never have to reach for the remote to protect the bike. The SR-i900R transceiver is capable of receiving alarm triggers from up to 1/2 mile away from the motorcycle.

The SR-i900R utilizes a built in accelerometer that detects both impact and changes of angles with a high degree of accuracy. It allows the module to be placed in any position or mounting angle and requires no adjustments.

SR-i900R includes TRS-9 remote transceiver, MCM (main control module), RFID antenna, universal installation kit, accessory harness, main harness, built in Back-Up Battery, Three-Stage Perimeter Sensor and Remote Ignition Disabler.

Does the key fobs have to be paired to the smart siren or is it automatic?

The Harley version actually has most, if not all of these features. If you order it online from one of the HD dealers, with the remote for monitoring the alarm (sold separately) the factory version is a little over 100 bucks

It's automatic. The only mating that has to be done is with the pager receiver if you add that, and it's literally a one-minute process.

The SS2 is an easy install. Plug it in, push it into the empty slot, and use the provided tape to mount the antenna.

The best feature about the system, IMHO, is the optional pager. Alarm gets triggered, the pager goes off.

Does it have a motion sensor? Just asking because my riding partner has a roadking and is always concerned about people stealing parts. Someone stole some parts when the bike was less than two weeks old

The scooter already has that, part of the base anti-theft system. What ever it takes to make the lights flash on the base system is the same as what sets off the audio alarm. You could unlock and open a saddle bag without setting it off. You could even sit on the seat, gently. But you won't be able to move the scooter.

Best thing I've come across for stopping the tweaker's from stealing stuff off the scooter is to secure it with more difficult to remove fasteners, and using a locked/alarmed cover for stuff like overnight in a parking lot. Prolly works even better if you use a Honda cover.

I agree about the pager, and that's why I bought it. I already had the pager from my last 2 bikes so it made sense to pay the extra $$$, instead of doing the radio shack option, in my opinion.

Yes it does have a motion sensor, but it's not real sensitive. Removing parts may not set it off.
