I have a Scorpio alarm system and want to install it on my 1994 Goldwing GL1500. Anyone done this, or have suggestions on where and how to install it? It has an antenna probably 18" long that sends a signal to a remote in my pocket. Also needs 12V power, NOT SWITCHED. Ideally it also attaches to the turn signal wires, allowing them to flash as well as set off the siren.
On my last bike, I installed it under the seat. Is that the best place on the GL1500?

Thanks, Mark.

there will be plenty of room under the seat, for the horn, depending its size, you could hide it behind the fairing lowers, or behind the cornering lights where the stock horns are mounted. for the installation, well just follow the instructions.

The one I'm designing now will mount under the seat, tap into the battery, aux power, turn signals, brakes, gear switch, horn and ECU.

A lot of the 'fancy' ones are more about pizazz features than substance.

That should be an awesome alarm. Current alarms are very pricey and sometimes not very reliable.
I'm trying to figure how I wired the alarm to my old bike, so I can move it to the wing. Nothing like a bad memory and poor documentation to make a project hard....

Yes, difficult without documentation. Maybe contact the manufacturer or find something on it on the web.

All alarms need battery and some way to know when they are disabled and when to go into alarm mode based on sensors and conditions.

I don't know what yours is supposed to have.

I finally got it off the old bike. Its a scorpio and primary alarms are tilt and proximity. Wife found the manual, so I'm good to go. I'll put it under the seat, with one wire to battery, one to switched power, plus ground.
I really like the proximity when I'm at a motel. I park away from other cars, and it beeps and sends a signal to my remote with time stamp of the intrusion and wakes me up. Couple of times at 3am I woke up to find someone near the bike... Once I was in a casino and got a time stamped signal when someone broke into my saddlebags, which the casino used to search their cameras.
Thanks, Mark.

Rudy, now that you have teased up about an alarm system, when can we expect to see a working model and place our orders?
