Datool 433 alarm?

Hello all,

New member :-)

I have purchased a Datatool alarm for my MV F4 750,

I'm just enquiring if anyone would know please the correct model number for the alarm?

I purchased it 2nd hand, proper MV alarm for F4 750, my mechanic says its a "433" but I need to know if its a series two or three etc for my Bike insurance, would anyone know the correct model number please?

Changed from my Aprilia RS250 last year, will post pictures of my MV in next few days, having fun so far with the MV

Thumbs down Datatool?

1st Welcome aboard the Forum

before mounting a Datatool alarm you should use 'search' type in 'datatool' and see what you come up with

i think its a close race as to what caused more electrical problems:
putting the battery in backwards
Brutale SPUs
or alarms

Beware of secondhand alarms. They get quite a roasting mounted under the seat on an F4 and don't last forever. One thing you should do is open it up and see if it's got a 9V battery in it. If it does then replace it before you fit it and keep the bike charged so as the 9V doesn't get drained. (It's not a rechargable, but the alarm will use it if the bike's battery is flat.) A lot of my problems in the past with my Datatool were when I hadn't realised that 9V battery was getting old.


[Edit] Another benefit of opening it up to change the battery is that you might be able to get more identifying information from the circuit board as to its type and you can enquire with Datatool themselves. When I've spoken to them in the past they've been very helpful. If it's an old alarm they're not likely to support it, but they should at least be able to tell you what it is. Last time I looked you were still able to download manuals from them for old alarms too.
