What Alarm?

Does anyone know what alarm is used on the K1200LT. I am trying to match it choices on an insurance quote website UK?

Talking Re: What Alarm?

My 05 has a central locking system that is activated with one push of the striped button on the wireless key fob. there is a latching sound as the doors lock. I believe this also shuts off the fuel pump and de-activates the starter. With a second push of the button the turn signals flash (twice) and I believe this activates a horn blowing light flashing system like a lot of cars have.

A single push of the other smooth button shuts off the alarms and opens the case latches.

I think this is the case but would need to locate the books that came with the bike to be sure.

do a search on alarms and you probably will find out for sure

To add to that: a THIRD push on the striped button will activate transport mode. This means it will keep the fuel pump and starter disabled etc, but it will disable the motion detector so you can haul it.

The blinking light/beeping is a feature you have to switch (see manual). It either beeps or blinks. I chose to have it beep, since then I can make sure the alarm is activated even when I can't see the bike (from the house for example).

The fuel-pump and starter are controlled by the immobiliser, which is triggered automatically on my bike around 15 seconds after I've turned the engine off. It activates whether I use the central locking system or not and it flashes the turn-signals once as it does so. One push of the ribbed button locks the cases, two activates the alarm and motion sensor (two flashes of the signals) and a third de-activates the motion sensor so the bike can be transported in a secure state (a beep and three flashes I think).

The immobiliser is released by one press of the smooth button, which will also unlock the bike and turn off the alarm at the same time if they've been set.

It's possible to reprogram some of the actions so that, for example, the immobiliser doesn't set itself but I've not found it sufficiently irritating to bother.

Re: What Alarm?

Sorry question seems to be misunderstood. I was trying to find the make or thatcham grade of the alarm so I know what box to tick on an insurance form.

Re: What Alarm?

As far as I know it's an OEM system. I haven't found any on-line insurance system that included it.
