Anyone have one? The only reviews i could find just said it was an easy install.
I have it.
I used that magnificent site that a fellow inmate created to source what I needed.
It is crazy simple to install and everything you need comes with the two kits. The harness to plug in is there on your bike now.
Way easier then my heated grips or cruise control.
Simple function. With it armed just upright my bike and it goes off. Tiny remotes.
Do it, Do it.....
Mine is getting installed by the dealer when I bring it in for the first service next week. They include free install on any accessories when purchased at the same time as the bike - they just had to order it as they don’t keep them in stock.
I ordered it with mine and when I saw how it’s mounted was a bit disappointed to see I’ll have to remove it every time I need to get to the air filter. Oh well only a few screws, no big deal.
I will be installing the Pandora Smart Moto
Alarm, had it on my 690 and it’s the best system out there imo. Lots of features and comes with a great app.
I found out that KTM actually source their alarms from DefcomT and mark them up. You can get the same exact alarm for much cheaper though the site below, or google, which is what I did. ***make sure you enter your model number in correctly, cause even though the hardware is universal, the software might not be***
Feels solid and comes with good mounting Velcro, if you also want to avoid dishing $50 for the mount. Install takes a whole 5 minutes and is plug and play. So far I like it. The instructions were kind of vague but better than any descriptions I could find online from any website to include KTM’s. Let me know if you guys want me to upload the 2 page manual.
-very sensitive tilt sensor/alarm
-ignition kill option w/no alarm if you want
-45 second grace period before alarm fully activates, just in case you forgot something in your panniers
-As loud as a car alarm
-If you somehow pull the seat and tear the alarm out or cut the wires *with it armed* the ecu is dead until you plug it back in and disarm with the assigned remote(s).
-remotes are nice and small, good for bikes!
-programmable automatic alarm arming after X amount of time with ignition in off
-did I mention easy install?
-the $50 mount might be more solid but at this moment the Velcro is working out, and I do more off road than on. We’ll see over time. So far so good. Worse case scenario I buy one later
-$180ish USD if you get the DefcomT instead of ktm’s alarm aka a DefcomT... see what I’m getting at
Another reason why I opted for Velcro... for now... lol
It’s actually that interlocking plastic stuff that’s like Velcro but stronger, if that makes sense.
Shamelessly quadruple the price without having to do anything. What a rip off!!!!!
Welcome to capitalism
Yep, love it!
It's been in the FAQ for ages. As someone who installed this alarm, and use it, if you see things to correct in the FAQ please let me know: I don't have an alarm and all the info there was sourced from other people.
Oh is that your site? It’s been extremely helpful! The additional info/features that I mentioned earlier may help. I was kind of in the dark as far as what features I was getting with the alarm. The one inaccuracy I noticed is that you don’t actually need the mount. The seat and bike both come with a dedicated spot with predrilled holes for the seat switch and using velcro to mount it saves you time and work when it comes to changing out the air filter, as the mount gets in the way and would have to be removed.
Ah, but in the literature the seat switch is always pictured with the mount, and never with the alarm. If it is included with the alarm that's good. What is it composed of? A magnetic switch and a magnet? Or a push switch and a metallic plate on the seat?
Yeah the literature is off, there are dedicated mounting points for it. It’s a magnetic switch. It’s in the bottom right of the attached photos. Might eventually go with the mount but for now I prefer it velcro’d on the cover of my air filter so I don’t have to go through the hassle of removing the mount to access the filter. We’ll see how it holds up without it, still might just make a mount that attaches to the cover cause why pay $50 for a piece of sheet metal that gets in the way of routine maintenance.
Note the preexisting angled support section under the sensor. It even had predrilled holes for it. Should be careful because the sensor is made of a composite material and easy to over tighten the screws and crack the assembly.
are these the same alarms?
if so 71 pounds is a real
I don’t know. I selected the specific one for the 790 Adventure and the price went up to 180 USD. Figured I should error on the side of caution just in case the firmware is different. Since it’s a new bike I couldn’t find anything or anyone that had the info. You could be that hero though and give it try for everyone then let us know if it works or not! Haha
on the 790 adv.net
they mention the link I posted
it seems there is already experience with that alarm.
Yeah the guy who runs that site is in this conversation, if you read up a few posts.
The alarm works! Glad I didn’t wait to get it. Just got home from work and somebody decided to pull the cover off to admire her. Unfortunately, I don’t have a garage or options for such. Getting the brake lock after this as well. Will be checking with the neighbors to see if anyone saw anything.
