Post Alarm system for Zuma 125
wondering if anybody has any advice on alarm systems for scooters.......looking for something w/ a motion detector that is loud and easy to use and install

or should I just be looking at chains or other locks to secure it?

Sometimes I wrestle with my demons
Sometimes we snuggle....

I had used one with a remote keychain that talks to the alarm, has a lcd screen and transmitted very far

I think where I live I went 4 houses down the street and worked the alarm

it had some sort of kill feature, and auto start
none of which I could get to work with the wires they provided

I think it was called a spy from amazon around $100

but I found the lcd remote ate batteries like crazy like in a week or two they would be so low it could arm the bike
but not have enough power to disarm

so ended up not using them, bought 2 for couple bikes I have

I would just stick with the basics
heavy chain or cable and full coverage insurance

the lock will be the weak point as a good set of bolt cutters will cut anything

the chains, cables are mostly for those that want to roll it away or hop on and hot wire

if you have time and are a pro, you can steal anything

lets face it we all hear alarms go off but most people ignore them now

You could invest in one of those gps tracking devices but those will slowly drain the battery while plugged in
but if you ride the scoot daily I don't see that as a problem

but again I think if you insure it properly and park it where you or people can keep an eye on it then thats probably the best thing

even here at home my bikes are cable locked and chained even parked in the garage
just the extra step I take to keep someone from rolling them away

I was also looking for some sort of GPS or alarm and what I have found either they are really expensive or they have a monthly fee because you use a sim card of some sort. I was looking for something under $20 to keep people from stealing my scooter from the parking lot during my classes.

Post Re: Alarm system for Zuma 125
I am currently using the Gorilla 9100 w/ two-way remote. I purchased this after my 50F got stolen - in the middle of the day, parked in the yard, 10 feet from the front door, in a 30 minute time window, and I was right inside the door.

The Gorilla has been great and installation was a breeze.

I removed the plastic engine cover, underneath the seat - to the rear of the footboard. I used commercial velcro, and attached it to the plastic engine cover itself. That way if you attempt to remove that cover, the alarm will sound.

Generally when I'm parked and the alarm is activated, I always use the center stand to further prevent accidental alarms. -- This alarm system was absolutely worth the money, and has at least twice, scared of people messing with the scoot. -

Also, I am the Sales & Marketing Manager at Cycle Outfitters Limited, a motorcycle parts/accessories/service shop in Indianapolis, IN - anyone looking to get one, or any other parts we have access to, I will be more than happy to provide a 'zuma owners discount', generally we process out of state transactions as tax free, and anything over about $50 I will ship for free (within reason). If anybody is interested, or want pricing you can call the shop at 317-783-2901 - my name is Austin. (pardon the horrible website - owner won't approve me the budget to get it redone)

get a alarm that is simple and as less wires to hook up. don't want any remote start or kill or valet mode and all that jazz. don't mess with the wires and electrical.

so on that note i use to have a gorilla on my R1 motorcycle. just power and ground straight to the battery. then velcro it onto the bike. works great and sturdy unit.

but on the zuma 125 the battery is small, i would get a larger sized battery. something that is close in width and length but can be taller. just shave the bottom of the battery cover. i found a BS9 batter from a r6 or majesty 400 to work. more capacity means less chance to die out especially if the alarm went off. fuel injected scooters normally don't have a kick starter. if battery goes weak your dookie out of luck.
