Mv Alarm!

CAN ANYONE TELL ME WHAT THEY THINK ABOUT THE MV BIKE ALARM THAT COMES STANDARD WITH ALL 2005 F4'S AND BRUTALE BIKES. HAVE ANY OF YOU FOUND IT TO BE A GREAT COMFORT AND ASSURANCE AGAINST THEFT, COMPARED TO MOST HIGH END AFTER MARKET ALARMS SYSTEMS? IS THE AFTER MARKET BIKE ALARM BETTER THEN MV STANDARD SYSTEM OR ABOUT THE SAME? AND IF SO, WHAT MAKES THE AFTER MARKET BETTER? DOES ANYONE RECOMMEND ANY PARTICULAR BRANDS?

Alarms dont come standard on the bikes. At least not on my 05 F4-1000 or my 06 Brutale.

I do however now have a MV Agusta Corse alarm on my bike. It gives some piece of mind but not a ton. It's LOUD. Has a sensor under the passenger seat in case it's removed and a motion sensor if the bike is moved. I have the sensitivity all the way up and i was still able to upright my bike and roll it around a bit before it went off. Isnt perfect, but helps......

edit: also has an ignition immobiliser and ignition lock tamper protection

THANKS TRIPLE @ ALTOON. MY MISTAKE, I THOUGHT I READ SOMEWHERE THAT MV WAS ADDING AN ALARM ON THE PURCHACE OF AN MVAGUSTA BIKE THIS YEAR. MAYBE IT'S OFFERED ONLY AS AN OPTION.

ALTOON: SORRY FOR MY OWN KEYBOARD ALARM, IT CAN GET PRETTY LOUD! CAN YOU HEAR ME NOW, CAN YOU HEAR ME NOW...

The alarm comes with the Gladio Kit. Its pretty loud and works pretty well. My only nit pick is that the remote does scratch the keyguard a bit.

I would get a strap or halbard with a keyring so you can hang the alarm remote around your neck and tuck inside your jacket or leathers when you are riding the bike. This way you don't lose it and it won't scratch your bike.

If you can't fix it with a hammer you've got an electrical problem!


No MV's in the garage anymore

It comes right out with compound, but its pretty annoying. I really dont want to seperate it from the key cause God forbid im on a ride in the middle of nowhere and lose it. I suppose I could keep it under the seat. It auto arms itself after you shut off the bike. Im sure there is a way to not have it auto arm, I just have to read the instructions.

Yes, Auto arm is a pain in the arse, but you do get used to it after a while. Filling up at a gas station, going in to pay and then climbing back on the bike without resetting the alarm. That's my pet hate. Have to say my new alarm remote is part of the ignition key, much better than fumbling around with a seperate unit.

Altoon,

How much did this system cost you? I went to their webpage and read up on it and it sounds very nice. But I would have to drive down to Oregon and have someone install it for me. It's a 2 hour drive, but I'm not complaining. I'm not to crazy about having someone mess around with my bike.
