Avoid them if possible, & use something like a Xena alarmed disclock instead. If you must have an alarm, be aware that it's not uncommon for the related disturbance of the wiring loom to lead to many blown main fuses. The loom has a weep hole to let water out, & if that hole isn't left pointing in the right direction (which it often isn't after fitting an alarm), water collects, leading to problems.
The good thing about the official MV Datatool is it is quite easy to remove in a hotel carpark in the south of France when it fcuks up...
I have the MV Corse system (manufactured by Cobra). No problems after nearly 12000 miles. Adjustable motion sensor, sensor on rear seat that sets it off if someone tries to get at it to disable, passive immobilizer (sets itself shortly after you turn off the ignition and will set off alarm if someone tries to start it without the key fob). Clean direct factory wiring connections.
Only problem is I don't think they are available anymore.
Hey, and I had an '85 Alfa GT-V6...great car, wish i still had it today.
Check out a few old threads here on the site re alarms. I'm with Roy, even though I do have a datatool 4 alarm on my 1000S which (to date) hasn't caused problems, I have no alarm on my Duke and that's the way it's staying. They are great until they go wrong then you wish you never fitted the bloody thing.
I think the cheap alarms are rubbish. I have a Laserline cat1 fitted to the MV and no problems so far and a lifetime warrenty! I've a Laserline 860 (cat1) on my R1 since it was new in 1998 and its still good now. No flat batteries or non start, false alarm issues. Even had one on RS250 aprillia in 95 and never had a problem in 3 years.
Buy quality and buy once
For those that are interested...
The Givi Ring BF-02 fits perfectly on the 2019 Dragster RR.
I fitted it with the Givi ST605 Sport-T TanklockED Tank Bag which locks to your bike so nobody grabs it. I will be adding a small travel lock to the zipper like this I don't have to worry if I leave it...
Looking to get myself something for the holidays. Want a hoodie or jacket. Where is the best place to get a MV brand one? Probably need an xxl size. I'm a XL hoodie so with European size looking at a xxl.

Hi everyone, I am selecting a new helmet, as I believe that purchase of a new bike is a good reason to buy a new helmet.
I am thinking of a full-face helmet, and my budget is roughly $450. The helmet that I have got now was $99, and it was some sort of promotion in my local store.
Hey, I am looking for GPR exhaust to my Brutale 989R. I think it is the same model of the exhaust system like for example in 910. Should be fit? What do you think? I think about GPR Furore balck carbon for Brutale 910. At the moment I have already decat Termignoni.
