I bought a simple alarm (connecting to the - and + of the battery) is there is any problem installing it ? can it cause any malfunction of the scout?
thanks

I just had my break in treatment and I was told by the garage guy not to install “because the electric system of the scout is sensitive”. It sounds strange to me...
It sounds strange to me too. Maybe someone else will chime in on some reason not to install it. The alarm will only be armed while the bike is off and it’s connected straight to the battery so I can’t see it causing any issues other than possibly a drain on the battery but if you ride it regularly that should not be a problem.

I presume "sensitive" means Canbus....yes, they are trickier, however, if your alarm is that simple you could try it out and if the system doesn't like it you can easily remove it...

Crude diagram but will give you the general idea. Networks and allows devices to interface with each other without the need of direct access to the main computer
