Re: Any suggestions on an after-market alarm?
I would think you need both, but, even after I sent the links, I believe you may need a fob to turn it on and off. There is a programming procedure in the alarm book (may already be on the site, but I can scan mine if needed).
Really depends what you're trying to do, protect it from a joy rider, vandal, tow-job. That will determine what you'll need. Simple Kill switch may be all you need or a bike cover with a lock.
My suspicion is the BMW harness is set for the alarm (must have been an option in 00), mine has the central locking and alarm. I love it and use it all the time You may get lucky with the Ebay guy if he knows anything about how it was hooked up to his bike. I'd probably start with posting a question to him and maybe take out an unique (new) e-mail account for him to send you some info. Can't hurt.
