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.
Shamelessly quadruple the price without having to do anything. What a rip off!!!!!
Welcome to capitalism
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.
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?
are these the same alarms?
if so 71 pounds is a real
on the 790 adv.net
they mention the link I posted
it seems there is already experience with that alarm.
ok just ordered the alarm.
is it possible to use the alarm without the seat magnet? ( I have 2 different seats for different purposes)
Yes you don't need the magnet at all if you don't want to.
Just installed the Meta Def Com T on my 790R. Tried to buy from the faq link, but on check out it said "No Shipping Options". I'm in California US. I went ahead and purchased from this ebay link:
Took 8 days to arrive from UK. This is the easiest install ever. Plug it in and velcro'd to the airbox lid. Didn't bother with the KTM mounting kit with seat reed switch. Works great and comes with two small remotes. I have it set to manual arming, not auto after turning off the bike. Bike is mostly in a locked garage, but occasionally would be nice to arm for road trips in the motel parking lot.
Same here. Ordered off Ebay. Shipped quick from UK. Quick and easy install.
Haven't been brave enough yet to try to disarm it using the key switch routine and program in a custom code but will do so maybe later today. Want to make certain I can disarm it without the remote if need be. As I understand it if the alarm is armed and the remote doesn't work or is lost even unplugging the unit won't allow the bike to start. I'd hate to have the remote die and not have a way to get moving.
I don't envision arming the alarm often but it's a nice option to have for overnights in a motel or if having to leave the bike somewhere vulnerable and out of sight for an extended period of time.
So the eBay version does not come with the seat switch?
Fair enough if that’s the case.
Has anyone seen it offered with shipping to Canada?
Has anyone done a write up on how to use/program, what it’s like to live with etc?
Mine came with user manual and Install instructions. Pretty straight forward though changing the defaults seems a bit clumsy. I second it would be great if anyone has a write up about living with it and a y tips, tricks, or gotchas. The basic install though is dead simple. Plug it in. Arm it with a push of a button. Stick key in ignition and unarm with a push of the button.
If you leave the alarm armed it will definitely draw down the battery. A month of the alarm active without a tender would do it for certain I imagine.
According to instructions it will shutdown draw after five days. It’s still armed but the flashing dash light stops. BTW, says normal draw is only 1.8 Milliamps
