Datatool as standard

Hello all.
Having just got hold of my bike and not planning on riding her while there is salt still present on the road, all I can do is tinker with her in the garage. While doing so, I have come across a Datatool S4 Red fitted under the seat cowling. Is this fitted as standard as I was surprised to find it as have no fob or even advised it was fitted. It starts no problem so must be disconnected somewhere but the wiring to it is taped up into the loom so wouldn't know where to start looking for the cut wires apart from near the unit, there is a double black wire which has been looped over to complete a connection maybe?

Any help appreciated as seems a shame to have one on the bike and not be used. Have spoke to Datatool themselves and they are saying, 'go to an approved fitting centre' which is not surprising, but was just trying to see if I could order a fob for this particular alarm.

Many thanks in advance

Probably disconnected for a reason.

Numerous threads on here about alarms causing issues

If you want/need an alarm type system I would suggest a tracker. Plenty of good ones out there to choose from as long as you don't buy a cheap one. They're battery operated that will last for months or you can hook some of them to constant power (doesn't seem to be recommended on an MV). You can set them so that if someone just bumps your bike you get a text immediately. And if they do manage to make off with it, you will find them and the bike.

Thanks for the advice, I hadn't read about the issues people were having with alarms on this particular bike, but have heard about them on others. Just a shame that it seems to be wired up into the loom and not able to use!
