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

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.


Hence the lack of Thatcham approval?

Do not forget to change the internal alarm unit battery now that you have it at hand, and forget it for long long time.

Thanks for prices, but what does the alarm actually do? Does it just sense bike movement (my disc lock does that) or voltage drop etc? Bet for that price it's not one of those snazzy ones that tell you to back away as you approach the bike.... :-\

Why not follow my link above to find out what it does?

Sect. 9 I believe.

But, if you can't be bothered to follow the link, it alarms on motion, an attempt to start the bike with a key other than the correct one or any attempt to cut power to the alarm unit!

A quick change of direction - So if I have a BMW Alarm on my K1300S I can have the Type Pressure Monitor retrofitted? Will it then show on my on-board computer via the info button?

Yes you can. You can also get it retrofitted if you don't have a BMW alarm. It will need to be introduced/registered to your bike by the stealer.
As I have grown older, I've learned that pleasing everybody is impossible, but pissing everyone off is a piece of cake.

There are an awful lot of threads on other (mainly US) sites where lots of members, and BMW NA, are adamant that it is not possible unless the RDC was in the original build of the bike. This was mainly for F800/650 bikes but one member (who used to frequent this site) was having trouble getting it to work on a K1200S.

In USA, they sell an aftemarket kit of all the bits you need, but even having purchased the kit, the mothership won't allow the computer to register the option. This was as of 2014.

I don't know if this is different for Europe, but unless anyone has actually done it successfully, I wouldn't spend money speculatively.

Not necessarily Tom. It may be different for the K in Europe. The site I was trawling yesterday even had the dealers saying it could be done, but when oush came to shove, they had to admit defeat.

At the risk of trying to resurrect a very old post...

I suspect I too may be confused.

My 2014 K13 has TPMS fitted in a Schrader box with one socket under the seat. Am I correct in understanding that, if I buy a combined TPMS/Alarm unit this will be a straight replacement for my existing box (ie, just the one outlet but presumably a cut-out for the sounder on top).

I will be able to get my local dealer to code it into the bike and then I'll be able to use it with or without a remote control. There were some photo's on this thread that would probably have answered my question but they seem not to be linked anymore.

Thanks

They were my piccies, stolen by Photobucket...

Yes, you are correct. When I fitted the combined Alarm/TPMS unit to my TPMS only K13S, it worked straight away.

Can't find my own post. If you can pm me the link to the post, assuming it was mine you were looking at, I will pm you the piccies so you know what you are looking at.
