Motorcycle Alarms

I've been on this site for a minute in the background and I was trying to find a thread on this. But I'm looking for an alarm for my bike, never had a reason or so I thought for an alarm but I just bought a 2017 GSX-R750 and I kind of would want something on it. I was debating between the Scorpio SR-i900R Security System and the Gorilla Automotive 9100 Motorcycle Alarm with 2-Way Paging System. Does anyone have any experience with these products or is there anything better you would recommend? Thanks in advance

Re: Motorcycle Alarms

You got it nailed with those two. I really don't know of anything else out there that's not crappy. I tried a cheap paging alarm years ago and it was a piece of shit. I had an older model Gorila non paging and it was fine.

I'm scared shatless of losing a bike when I'm staying at motels but not at home. My place is Fort Knox.

Re: Motorcycle Alarms

I recommend theft insurance and GPS tracking.

Re: Motorcycle Alarms

I have a gps tracker in my bike . It's Ride Module . I pay 10 dollars a month though . It saves all my rides and lets me know when it's tilted and moved .

If you have theft insurance why do you need the tracker, if it's stolen you don't really want it back you want a new one?!

Maybe it's different in the US, here once it's stolen the insurance pays out, if it's recovered they then own the bike. Usually unless it's quite new it's not cost effective for them to repair at main dealer rates so they right it off. You can then buy it back from them but the bike is marked as a right off against the registration which means it's very hard to ever re-sell again.

Re: Motorcycle Alarms

I always thought they were a waste of time and money. Grab a big ass chain and tie it to something stationary. Another good rule is, don't leave your bike for extended periods of time where you have to worry about it getting stolen. Worse case scenario and you have to do so, make sure you have it covered well. Sort of an "out of sight, out of mind" thing. Either way if the thieves really want your shit, they will get it. That's what full coverage insurance is for.

And more because I'd want the cocksucker caught and arrested. That's worth the price of the gizmo and monthly fees, right there.

Re: Motorcycle Alarms

I have used RoadLok for 4 years now and cannot fault it ... even if thieves undo the bolts to the caliper they cannot defeat the pin that remains secured to the disk rotor. It weighs literally a few ounces. No effect on handling of the motorcycle.

Looks neat, just make sure you don't ride off with it enabled!

Increasing over here thieves lift the entire bike into a van and drive off, so chaining it to a post is a good idea.

Re: Motorcycle Alarms

Yep. Disk locks are useless here. Bikes are thrown in the back of pickups and gone. Cable them to something slows thieves down a bit.

I have disk lock alarms and an alarmed cable for traveling. I try to find motels with parking in front of the room but this is not always possible. I'm thinking of using a driveway alarm if I can find a place to attach the motion sensor on the bike overnight. They have a decent range and I'd know if anyone was close to the bike.

I'm pretty happy with my lockalarm cable. Nice to cable two bikes together. Products | Lock Alarm
