    Stupid me and smart alarm.

    Has anyone wired an alarm up to the Hawk, I have it working now including the remote start but I cant get the immobiliser to work, keep blowing fuses all over the place.
    There are two wires left coming form the alarm(Gray and Pink) these are suppose to attach to the main ignition wire and then the wire is cut between the two joins.
    Has anyone any idea what I am talking about and some ideas for me to try.

    Thanks.

    I wanted to wire in a remote start until I realized two things:

    1) I suck as an electrician.

    2) Ever left your Hawk in 1st gear by mistake and it "jumps" when you hit the starter? Yeah... now imagine you're not on the bike! Hawks tend to have problems finding neutral sometimes...

      wiring diagram here:

      http://www.fastgm.com/travis/hawk/ha...ng-diagram.gif

      in that diagram theres a black wire between the #6 (ignition fuse) and the kill switch.

      i would tap that wire if it were my bike. (that doesnt mean its "right", its just how i would do it)

      now if someone were to try to steal your bike by the busting ignition switch method, and the alarm goes off.. it will kill it... but the battery could die too. theives tend to leave the ignition on when they run away... then you get to the bike and its dead.
      also, with this method, it will crank over.. but never fire. so they can wear the battery down, flood the bike, ect... but it wont be ridden away

      if they do the "cut harness, and connect" method" this may or may not work.


      if the unit can take the FULL power load of the bike.. meaning the lights, ignition, everything... then the big solid red wire thats on the starter relay will work... be sure to splice the one that powers the bike, and not the one that the regulator/rectifier uses. (that one has a white stripe)


      doug:
      if hes doing it right, the automatic starter should never work, unless the "neutral light" is on... now its possible that the bike is in gear with the light on.. but highly unlikely....
      still, i dont see the point of a remote start on a water cooled motorcycle... but i can understand wanting to have cool gadgets "just cause".... besides.. im betting the remote start came with the alarm. its not like he went out and bought just the remote start.

        starting in first gear

        Ya, very important I wired it up to a neutral switch so it will not start unless the bike is in neutral, that was not the hard bit.
        Its better then a cool gadget, girls love it and great for practical jokes. but the most important thing was the alarm. it just happened to come with remote start

        Thanks MrDude ill buy some more fuses the weekend and take another attempt at it.

          Doesn't start unless in neutral? I might do this myself then!

          What alarm did you get?
