Shoot away. Republicans can't be hurt by mere bullets!

I've heard democrats make good eating also. They're easy to kill because they don't put up a fight and they taste just like...CHICKEN!

Well, shucks! I thought for sure I'd get some heated reply from someone taking offence to my comment, and I was ready to reply that politics really don't belong on enthusiast forums, especially diatribes against whatever is perceived to be "the other side." I sure hope I don't see any more derogatory comments about Republicans OR Democrats on this fine forum.

I've seen an alarm on the web which is sort of related to a crow scarer it's set
off by a trip wire and fires several blank shotgun rounds and or flares. That might
do the trick.

Huffer, go over to campfire talk. That's where us Republican- and Democrat-bashers let off steam...

You're all looking at this the wrong way.

Just wait for the sprag clutch to dismantle itself and the job's done.

Every Enfield owner knows that the real name for the kick start it the Anti-Theft Device!

this thread got started about electrics & alarms.

Since then, I rewired my whole electrical system and included an 'm-unit' by motogadget which is a sort of centralized electronic protection system for any bike. It replaces all fuses and flashers, and gives you diagnostics on any problematic circuit. In addition, it offers brake modulation, hazard lights, self-cancelling flashers, works with regular bulbs OR LED's... AND it includes an alarm.

Works as advertised... when you jiggle the bike even slightly, all lights and the horn go off. Quite neat.

The unit uses very little power - I've been gone for ten days and came back and started her up without problems.

While not cheap, the m-unit offers a lot of useful functionality if you are considering re-doing your electrical system anyway... I would recommend it!

Of course, to bypass it you merely need to remove the battery, but that's true of any bike alarm.

Mine is installed in my (lockable) toolbox; again, not much of a deterrent, but much better than nothing!

THREAD NECROMANCY

Anyway, quick question - would the motogadget be difficult to install by itself on a stock RE?  I am a board-level electrician, so I'm fine with working with things a bit, but I don't really want to spend two weeks rewiring the whole damned bike.  If it's just a couple of hours of plugging/unplugging/crimping/soldering, then I'm okay with that.  What's your take, oh master-RE wiring guru?
All hail Sir Lucas, Prince of Darkness.

When an idiot thinks it's the same as not thinking at all!

I don't think it would take long rewiring the entire bike.. All you need to do is get rid of all that safety stuff (Kill switch, clutch interlock, ignition switch, kickstand interlock) and the E-start and any emissions garbage and all the sudden the electrics are but a few wires.
