Triumph Alarm A9808012
« on: January 13, 2020, 06:38:03 PM »
Has anyone self-fitted this alarm unit to their Trophy?  My last Trophy had an alarm but my new one doesn't.  They are available at GBP 165 but I'm wondering about the difficulty or otherwise of fitting them and whether any programming is required from a Triumph dealer?

Maybe you prefer a tracker to an alarm ? Seeking opinions...

Wow! That's half off of the price I'm finding on the web! I'm in the US but have purchased parts from across the pound before.
Interested in the reply's you get and will be watching! :028:

I did mine.

Fitting is surprisingly simple !

For reasons of Security I will not discuss that process further,
and would discourage anyone else from doing so within this Publicly visible Forum !

If you are happy with the stock settings ( I was ) then that's fine.

Settings CAN be changed ( Shock sensitivity etc etc )
and while instructions to do so are not provided with the Unit
they are available. 

Settings are changed by use of the Remote Control -
pressing buttons in a certain sequence alongside corresponding "beeps",
that can be quite complicated and protracted.

All those in the old Rocket 3 Owners Club (R3OC), me included, have fitted these Triumph alarm/immobilisers and within just a few years we all found they were going bad and triggering off at stupid o'clock in the morning. :233:
We had to rip them out and replace it with a blanking plug to keep the bike working.
Personally I'm happy with the chip inside the key and fitting an iTracker for £40'ish

[Isn't it always the case that these damn things and smoke alarms etc. always kick-off at 3 in the morning to tell you the battery's going flat!!!! :191:]

You find the same common opinions in the Triumph Sprint forums - but maybe the quality of these alarms has improved?
