“Bag of tat”

“Dont do it!”

Written on: 12/11/2012 by 747broom (1 review written)

I had one 'fitted' by MotoStrada and after 3 rain free months it started to immobilize the engine - whilst riding - hugely dangerous, clearly. Took it to a local dealer who said it was poorly installed. Got that fixed, and a few months later it wouldn't arm itself; so now its just a drain on the battery! Also, settings have to be done by the shop ie tilt sensitivity etc - This system is too complicated for its own good. I had system 2 for many years with no probs. Incidentally, the help line… Read Full Review

“Useless rubbish”

Written on: 16/08/2012 by grumblweed (1 review written)

Irritating, complicated, noisy, pointless, battery draining, poorly designed bit of rubbish. The only plus point is that it took all of 5 minutes to kill permanently using only a paperclip. Get a disclock instead. At least they are a good deterrent. A sicklock, even a cheap one will cause a thief a good deal of agro to remove. This thing, is disabled using office stationary and a small screwdriver! Certainly not worth the cost to have it installed… Read Full Review

“Good, until it fails”

Written on: 17/12/2011 by master_ed (1 review written)

Like all electronic products, it'll fail eventually. With every motorcycle alarm I've known, this happens before the bike dies. When mine went wrong, the only solution was to remove (and bin) it. It wasn't easy, because it had been well installed (I still haven't got the rest of the wiring 100% back). Fortunately, I was at home and had another vehicle to use. The user interface could be greatly improved, I didn't get on with the whole "to put it into [less irritating] mode...with the alarm… Read Full Review

Written on: 27/02/2011

I agree with most if not all the comments , as this alarm system is a pain in the neck for either disarming and not reacting to the key fob . My kawasaki zx12 has developed a new one . Oh the alarm works , but for some reason when you press the fob it makes the noise of disarm but the indicators dont flash and the electric`s are dead . On running throught the disarm proceedure as per the 15 step in the manual which is usless , for some reason it now starts , which doesnt inspire me with… Read Full Review

Written on: 15/11/2010 by Alastair McFarlane (1 review written)

I have had Datatool alarms on many of my bikes and lots of experience of cusatomer's bikes too. I run a motorcycle tour company (mcitours). Biggest issue is mobile phone aerial masts with transmitters that put out so much power they override the frequency between your keyfob and the alarm unit. If your bike will not start look around and you will see a mast nearby. Turn the bike through 90degrees and try again. If that doesn't work walk the bike 2-300 yards away from the mast. Check the kill… Read Full Review

“A lot of problems people experience with this alarm...”

Written on: 25/09/2010

A lot of problems people experience with this alarm (Datatool 3) are because the bike battery has been flattened (i.e in a showroom before you bought the bike with the alarm already installed). Unless you follow the datatool reset instructions (find them on their web site) which are pretty simple but take about ten minutes, the alarm is a sod to use, often difficult to disarm, and seems to have a mind of its own, arming and disarming randomly - i.e left me stuck at a petrol station for half an… Read Full Review

Written on: 04/08/2010

This alarm is a total pain!! In order to get petrol you drive to the garage, set the alarm, disarm it to fill the bike then reset and unset it to start the bike!!! just to get petrol!!

It arms itself after 30 seconds whether you want it or not and drains batteries meaning it has to be on charge all the time.
Constant bleeping whilst in service mode....very annoying

Worst thing i ever did putting it on my bike ....don't buy one, they are more trouble than they are worth.

Written on: 31/07/2010 by chrisajudd (1 review written)

I have the Datatool 3 fitted as an OEM product with a Triumph 865 Speedmaster.
On the plus side, the alarm will ALWAYS deter a thief. On the downside, it has stopped disarming from the keyfobs even after battery replacement on both the fobs and the bike battery. THE ONLY WAY I can now use the bike is by deliberately setting off the alarm by switching on the ignition, waiting 30 secs then switching the ignition off/on 5 times and entering the PIN to diasble it to give me a 30sec window to start… Read Full Review

I brought the bike and alarm together and has worked without trouble for the duration of the warranty (funny that !!). I cannot disarm the alarm at all sometimes, and all of a sudden its no problem. one day its working fine, so i take a ride to work and got stranded cos the alarm wouldn't disarm. I came back the next day the next day to disarm it, no joy. the second day perfect. I have been stuck at a petrol station and one other place. The alarm is not reliable and activates too quickly. don't… Read Full Review

Don't even think of buying one of these unless you want be driven absolutely insane by it. I'm seriously considering smashing mine with a hammer. If you remove the bike battery for charging, the alarm beeps at full volume every 15 seconds, which drives you insane after a few minutes… Read Full Review

Written on: 05/11/2009

I bought this for a long trip (3 years) but it is not consistent enough in the way that it functions and it also appears to have contributed quite badly to destructing around 5 or 6 motorcycle batteries.

I liked the security ideas but I am left feeling that it is only almost what it should have been but not good enough. This is a security device and it either works well or doesn't. My friend was stranded in the States overnight as there was a failure in his device. In the end he had to learn… Read Full Review

Written on: 18/06/2008 by DrFutura (1 review written)

Who pays attention to alarms? When my Datatool System 3 motorbike alarm goes wrong with age it requires your bike to be collected by a dealer in a van and carted off. If you can find a dealer. These things should be built to last the life of a motorcycle, not fall apart after a few years. Too expensive for what they are. There should be a foolproof mechanism for owners to switch it off if the "blipper" fails… Read Full Review

Written on: 02/06/2008 by evertheoptimist (1 review written)

It automatically arms itself after 30 seconds whether you like it or not which cannot be overridden or adjusted. This means before you have got your gloves and helmet off its re-armed itself not allowing you to get into the rear under seat compartment because there is a tamper switch. I'm finding myself constantly having to switch it off. Another problem is that to switch it off you have to enter what is called service/valet mode in this mode the alarm is off but you get an annoying beep every… Read Full Review
