Ring and ask, but that's what I figure it'll happen. Where you keep your bike might be a bigger factor, but they'll find something to fuck you over anyways.

Get an alarm if you fancy it by all means, but don't do it if it's just for the insurance cost because it's not a good investment.

Can't believe nobody's mentioned cyclone V2 alarms. Brilliant, simple, reliable and only forty quid. Wouldn't be without one.

The op has a bike that comes with a coded key and imobiliser.
In that case all I would do is get one of the cheetah or spyball alarms and install it to the bike so if its moved it will go off.
Dont put another immobiliser on it... makes no sense.

At least then you may deter theifs if it goes off and they really need the coaded key to get anywhere on it but still can feck it into the back of a van.

Yerra christ lads if I had a dog I wouldn't be barking myself. If I was looking for a good hooker ye'd tell me to sort myself out!

Looking for someone who supplies and fits alarms... to supply and fit an alarm! I may as well set a match to the bike as try to fit it myself.

Right. Cheers Chopper. I just googled cyclone and it directs me to this http://www.cyclonealarms.co.uk
Which says cyclone are now Chinese owned but that the original cyclone guys operate now under the NCS brand. Am I mistaken in being surprised that alarm immobiliser systems are only like 30 quid? I'd have thought them to be more like hundreds of euro?

Ditto, simple enough to fit, make a fuck ton of noise, you don't need much else.

Had a Datatool before on 2 bikes, greatest pieces of shit I've ever seen, if I'm buying a bike and there's one fitted, I actually use it as a negative when haggling as I've to allow costs for removing the fucker.
