    Can you remove a bike alarm system?

    Hi guys,

    Just got my first bike and am planning to put an alarm on it. It's not an R6 but I still want some peace of mind as I only have street parking...

    I was thinking of one of the Scorpio alarms, ebay is about $450? CDN all in for the sr-i600se with all options (immobilizer, battery, perimeter sensor).

    My question is: Can you reinstall all that stuff on a new bike? I'm not an expert in mechanical or electrical installations... Also for the immbolizer, can that be taken off too?

    Thanks!

    PS Is the immobilzer part important?

    Thanks.

    I can't think of any reason why an alarm system can't be moved from bike to bike, particularly if it comes with a "plug and play" harness, such as my Talon system. All that would be needed is to purchase the appropriate harness for the new bike if it was a different brand/model.

    Yes, those systems can be taken, and put on a new bike. Check with Sky, I think he has the 600 or 900 with all the bells & whistles.

    Yes, I took my Scorpio alarm off my old bike and put it on my new one, I just ordered the proper new wiring harness. No problems. I ordered a new immbolizer relay as well, it was just easier and cleaner than trying to resplice the original wire back together on the old bike.

    Of course you can. The main box only really hooks up to the battery. Factory harnesses make it easy to reconnect your signals back to the stock harness. If you have ignition kill, you can just splice the stock wires back together. I have the Sr-i900 and could probably remove the whole thing in under 10 minutes.

    The immbolizer isn't important if they're loading the bike into a van, but it's handy to have otherwise. The 900 has anti hijack too so even if someone rides off you can hit the two buttons on the remote and 15 seconds later the bike is dead. Just hook it up to the fuel pump relay or similar.
    If you wanna say something, speak into the mic. It's right above my balls.

    i think you've got your answer. most plug right into the factory harness so just a matter of unplugging if you want to change bikes.
    That that doesn't kill us forces us to live with a busted up bike!!

    I've got the basic Scorpio alarm (500 series?) with nothing extra. Very easy to install when you get the factory plugs.

    I just ordered an Armed guard off the Internet. Has all the doodads. Not saying it's any better but it's worth a look.

    Strange thread, can you remove an alarm system ..yet poster is talking about buying a new system and then asking how to remove one from a bike

    sounds fishy, like a person looking to disable alarms.. and everyone posting what they have and how its put together

    call me a pessimist but strange way to start a thread

    Or maybe they're looking at buying ONE alarm, as opposed to one alarm per bike (say if they sell it later).

    lol......just the way it's written. He's wondering if he can install an alarm system but not use certain features like the immobilizer or use it on future bikes the way I read it.
