I have been reading few post that with this last computer flash/upgrade thing they did that some people noticed the alarm now works. so i decided to go and test and sure enough it does i didnt even have to get a new fob. saved a few bucks and i got an alarm. For those who dont know. press just under the light on the back of regular fob and it should light up. it arms it when i quickly press it 3 times and the bike will honk confirming the alarm is on. no need to turn it off so to speak just make sure you have your fob on you when you plan to mess with the bike and you will be alright. otherwise its about to get loud!! I forgot i turned it on and it sent me sky high haha!!
