  • Alarms for Kats

    What do people think about alarms for Katanas? I will start keeping my bike outside more since it is getting warmer here. I know that no bike is unstealable, I just want to make it as hard as possible. Does anyone have any info on which brands are good? Also, how difficult are they to install? The packages say 20 minutes, but I really doubt that. I was at speedwerks.com and saw one that looked OK.

    Let me know what you think.

    Looks like a nice one, and speedwerks will standby their products too, so u know ur good to go there. The scorpion alarms are probably the most popular ones these days.

    The pager system is the best part of these, IMO.

    While nothing is fool proof, the more difficult you can make it, the better right!

            Man, sure could use one of those trunk monkeys. You would have to get him some gear though, and he may fit under a solo cowl.
            I'm sorry, I dont know where that came from. I would like information on the Scorpion Alarm as well.

                    Here is a link for the Scorpio, not sure if Speedwerks sells these or not.

                    What is nice about these is they sell a wireing harness that plugs directly into the kat. (97-02 atleast)

                          Ok.. I got my alarm at the dealership for a hundred it's a gorilla( I think that is how to spell it) It's got a pissed off monkey on the front of the box.
                          Anyways I the alarm took 5 min to install hook it up to the battery and tucked it behind the light. Super sensitive, dosent do much good at work but in a mall parking lot people see someone messin with a bike that goes DO DE DO DE DO DE WREE WREE WREE WREE. And I can hear it in the house no problem, thats what I got it for cause I dont have a garage.

                            We've got the scorpio alarms, and we've sold a bunch of them and installed them on bikes at the shop. They really are an easy install and they are a great alarm. They come highly recommended by Speedwerks! It's just that extra bit of security that can make the difference on your bike when those would-be thieves are around. I've also written a little review:

                            If you're not on a SpeedWerks bike, you're probably behind one.

                              I see that they are good alarms. However, they do not make them for my 95 GSX 600F. Do you recommend anyone else?
