Hi,

I'm soon to be taking delivery of my 2022 Scout Rogue in the UK. I'm not overly happy with having a keyed ignition (esp. given some of the horror stories of the older Scouts being very easy to start without a key) so want to go keyless.

I've seen some vids on youtube on how to do it but have some questions - the most important is would such a change invalidate the warranty on the bike and second is what is the best out there. Please remember I'm in the UK, so could do with a UK distributor and fitter service (I really don't want to mess things up on a brand new bike).

Thanks

Nope. There isn't one. I looked into this a few years ago and found that I would have to import a scout kit from the States. The closest European offering is Motogadget's keyless kit which is no where near as functional as DigitalDawg. Plus, I don't think that DGD can offer remote startup in Europe as they can in the States.

The latest 'must have' that you certainly 'don't really need.' Invest in other anti theft devices of which there are many. A 'Thatcham Approved' one may well get you a discount on your insurance policy as well?

Thanks for this. Do you know if there is a UK or EU distributer for their products?
As stated from @Jonty03 , I don't know of any distributor in Europe. Maybe due to missing CE stamp.

Cu,
Sven

I have a chain, handle bar locks (the ones that go over the levers and bar) and brake snap lock. The usual 50 quids worth of stuff. I'm paying 13500 for a new bike, I want something I can trust. My bike insurrer has the thatcham discounts but the difference is peanuts unless it has an immobiiser on it now.

As an Electrical Engineer for over 40 years whether the ignition is key or keyless it takes but a couple of minutes to bypass the ignition. I cannot however pick a lock. Personally I have a Tracker fitted by a renowned company which afforded me another discount. I try not to lose sleep over it. With the best part of £40k in my Scout if it goes it goes that is what insurance is for. I am also paying over £700 for said insurance which may help you sleep better at night? Insurance is only as good as when you have to make a claim. Ensure you check reviews of your underwriter before committing. Many people who go through a broker don't even know who their underwriters are or if they're any good! Layers of security are the key. See my post #4 in the thread below.

Been trying to contact Digital gawd dog to check it will fit the rogue and ensure the tracker will work in the UK and how the subscription works. No answer.

Are they just suffering the same issues as the rest of the world or just slow in answering sales enquiries?

Your bike your choice but just to be clear.

So you are going to pay an absolute minimum of well over £457 without shipping, import/customs duties plus VAT for a USA keyless ignition and tracker option?

You can get a Thatcham Approved S7 tracker fitted by a qualified engineer on your driveway with full UK and European cover and remotely monitored 24/7/365 with a three year warranty for £189 plus subscription of your choice? Even less if you ditch the remote monitoring and do the install yourself £149.

Keep the key, get a UK tracker system installed. You will then have funding for the next 'must have you certainly don't really need' item. Just trying to save you potentially wasting a bucketload of cash.

Got insurance quotes for £2.5k + so I bought my insurance from Indian direct for £850 (they use bikesure/adrainflux) to provide the insurance schedule, also added a tracker with monitoring which helped bring down the cost of insurance but had to be professionally installed, only shaved a couple of quid off if i added an immobiliser so didn't bother

Bike sure and Adrian Flux are brokers and provide insurance from underwriters. Your policy is probably underwritten by a company called Markerstudy. Their reviews make for very interesting reading. Remember insurance is only ever as good as when you need to claim. Markerstudy are crap!

Damn!!! reviews are terrible, wonder why would indian partner up with Bikesure/Adrian Flux if they are as bad as this??
I spoke to indian and they say in the event of a claim you speak with us and we deal with everything so that would make them my broker/agent

You got a huge discount from your initial quote of £2500. This is what Markerstudy do to attract customers. Nevertheless their reviews speak volumes. I had personal experience from them when I notified them of a ‘no fault/liability no claim’ accident. My vehicle sustained no damage but the buffoon that cut into my lane and I ripped the front wing clean off his Citroen with my Land Rover tyre was insistent he was going to claim off my insurance. I was subsequently treated disgustingly by Markerstudy who were my own insurers. I did eventually get an apology from them as it was preprinted letters they sent out not written for my accident circumstances but the damage was done! Never again no matter how cheap.
