Kill switch / movement alarm

PostAuthor: lance » Fri May 22, 2009 9:26 pm

Just reading bad luck in China bike theft...
Noticed Eaglebeak makes mention of cool anti theft device...
Searched the security posts and 14 pages of past post,
interesting reading cost me some time :)
but unable to find diagram of the device...

Wondering did it get posted and where it is.
Thanks

I decided not to re-post my home-brew alarm system after pulling it from the original forum topic. It works extremely well, but it requires a more than average degree of electronics knowledge to put together and properly wire into the bike's OEM harness without totally screwing things up. Just didn't want to be responsible for baiting someone into biting off more than they could chew and making a wiring error that would take weeks to figure out :eek:

There's a number of pretty decent alarm systems on the market that aren't too expensive, already put together, and don't require quite as much electronics knowledge to install - but they're still risky for a novice :tong:

That would go some ways towards explaining why it was so hard to find...
I think I got the gist anyway..
Aussie a cocky bunch, hoplessly optomistic
and likely capable of having a go at building anything out of nothing and getting it to work pretty good as well mostly..
So your not off the hook yet Eaglebeak...

I checked back for that too, when I got my VN400. Bad luck in China bike theft? Did you see my post about my kz250 then look in the archives or did someone else lose a bike in China?

I'd hazard a guess, that your's was not the only bike ever stolen in China :)
Reading between Eaglebeak's lines, I'd hazard another guess that he didn't want the Chinese Authorities getting their hands on his Top Secret anti motion device doofliker thingy...
And yes, like you Eselmate, I allso 'spent' much time looking for said diagram alluded too as being 'moved' to the Security section,
only to discover a whole lot of other interesting but totaly unrelated stuff instead...
As to weather or not it would have any effect on your present overheating problem, I can not say for sure... but I think not.
Meanwhile someone has advised that a kill switch wired into the stop light is good for a laugh,
and so with that in mind all we have to do now,
is figure out how...
Asever.

I have a brilliant idea for a kill switch... have it use bluetooth. If you are within 15m of the bike it will operate, if you are not it will not run. If only I still had friends who designed logic boards... only problem would be if you phone ran out of power on the Highway

That's interesting Mopar but what if you not Gay like those guys on your clip... or is that rolly plooly lingo the norm.
And what if they chop your hand off like they do on all the US cop shows that flood the telly, they can just drive or ride away, Bob's your uncle...
I like Elsemate's blueray, at least you know the bike's in a 15klm radius,
trouble being as you get closer he gets further...Hmmm
By the way, I really hope u get your bike back...
Another thing, that Mechanic that is so nice & friendly
but sold you a bike with no oil, maybe you want to re-think that relationship and look behind that inscrutable smile,
if that is even a word, never was much good at Chinese...

Lance, are you miss spelling things on purpose? I know you are an auzzie but "elsemate that, that looks a lot like you are mixing auzzie slang into my name... then other stuff like 15km not 15 meter. bluetooth (blueray is like a dvd player)


He is the most reliable guy in town that can get parts. If I ditch him as my mechanic, I also need a new group of people to ride with. Yes, no oil is a big mistake. But, he admitted it was his mistake and solved most of the problem. A really rare thing in China.

Ok you got me, it's not easy acting dumb...
at least I don't have to try very hard.
Well anyone can make a mistake, even mechanics and good mates are hard to find, well done...
Here's hoping your XV turns up.
We usually get what we put our attention on,
don't give up and let Nature take it's course...
