So how much would a retro-fit alarm cost me all in?

just a point I am lead to believe the bmw alarm is not Thatcham approved hence most
insurance companies don't discount for it mine certainly didn't.

I remember a long discussion about Thatcham,  and can reply to it. That UK contractor hired by the government responding to a request by British law and the insurance companies requires an annual fee and beta models from alarm manufactures to be included in their list of abroved companies.
The fee is not the case , definitely BMW Motorrad can afford it , but the BETA model rases the issue of copy right protected under the German law. This is a case that if brought to the European Court it's a definite loss for Thatcham and it's protectors.
Imagine that the company aproves GT alarms when at the same time does not aprove the BMW one wich is made made under agreement by the same company GT.   
EU crap again in my opinion and money in pockets of many in UK.

Have you had an alarm fitted Brian?

Not yet Tom, hopefully in the process of it!

I have access to a Windows laptop for a few hours this weekend so I can fire up the RepROM and dig out all the torques I haven't used fitting all the bits and bobs( ;D) and see what it says about the alalrm fitting process to boot!

Argh - thanks,

I didn't even think of sourcing  a "used" alarm.

It is easy to overlook the obvious! It's not like they wear out or anything and the coding is easy enough to get sorted by your local stealer!

Agh this reminds me to find the manual for mine.  Sometimes nothing flashes, sometimes it beeps at me, sometimes I feel like throwing my hands up in the air.

The con with the alarm, as I found out after I had mine fitted, is that it switches itself off after a few days....

There is nothing in the reprom on alarm unit simply cause the manufacturer GT provides hard copies of instructions only. 
The dealer only has a detail installtion copy.

Yep! About 7 days. Even if you have it on an Optimate. It is to save bike battery life.

The answer is to re-activate once a week. If mine isn't being used I just turn it on, then set the alarm when I turn it off.

Living under a cover, I always check it is still my bike under there and not some cardboard cut-out. This happened to a mate of mine back in my air force days. Bike parked outside mess, under cover. Guy went out to go home on it one weekend and all that was under the cover was a pile of cardboard boxes biffed into a rough bike shape! Bastards!
