    LISTEN UP!!

    If you hook up the scorpio IT WILL NOT EFFECT THE BIKE NEGATIVELY.

    The only problem would be that it may drain the battery a bit faster while sitting but that is easily fixed by hooking your bike to a battery tender as you should regarless!!

    Installed mine last night. Awesome piece but had the whole house pissed as hell at me while learninig how to run the damn thing. I couldnt get mine anywhere mounted except under the battery tray. Mounted the perimeter sensor on the left side of the battery box top. Maybe got a neat way for the antenna if anyone is interested and seems to work great. On the right back bone base tube back by the battery, I ran 1 1/2 wide clear 3m chaff tape then laid the antenna down and ran another piece on top of the antenna. Looks professional and nice n straight lines. Hookin up ignition disable tonight hopefully! Very nice alarm!

    I have the question Johnny B had installition says to run 6 inches of antenna up away from metal. Is it just as good to secure the antenna all the way down to the bike without leaving 6 inches stuck up somewhere? And Gas if you see this i P.med you about the how to on the kill/disable... Thanks for the killer thread on this.:2thumbs: :2thumbs: PEACE OUT

    so where do you guys get the cable for big dog? I will buy the SR-i600, also what does the ignition killer does? from what I understand you start the bike and after a few seconds you should press another button or the bike turns off?

    You can order the big dog adapter from almost anywhere that sells the unit.

    In theory you are right, the ignition kill could stop the bike from being started and also kill the bike if it was running. However this is not true on the big dog because you can't hook the kill inline on the ignition. It will just screw it up.

    You can however inhibit starting the bike with a set of instructions I can provide via PM.

    You can order the BDM cable directly from them at 1-800-428-0440 or sales@aritronix.com. The one you'll need for your '07 is part number BD-2 ($19.95). I just called them yesterday by the way and they have now verified and just updated their website to show that the BD-2 cable works on '08 and '09 models (EXCEPT BULLDOGS) as well, not just '05-'07.

    I'm looking at getting a SR-i900 but I'm really concerned about the battery drain because even on a tender my brand new Wolf starts like shit sometimes. The dealer swears to me that the Interstate 310cca battery is what BDM suggest but I'm probably going to order that Braile so hopefully it won't be an issue or concern later. Then the only question will be if there's any room for it.

    For anyone considering buying a Scorpio, now is a great time because they are including not only the bike specific harness BUT the perimeter sensor, battery back up, AND ignition modules as well for FREE. They extended their Spring offer but only until JUNE 15TH! That's over $100 worth of accessories.

    Thanks Gas Man! The I900 install went smooth and the tip about the connectors was the smartest move anyone could make in the event of trouble. I really don't know how everyone is installing the mcm under the battery box very hard to fit and strap, I went verticle on the right side of the battery box, as for the antenna i went and straped it to the cables coming from the EHC running downwards that will still qualify it for verticle and not blocked by metal.

    Thanks a bunch Gas Man! I paid someone to install on my other bike. I have the i500. I thought before I would mess it up I wasted $45 bucks. I would like to PM you for the starter disconnect/kill wiring. I also had it installed on other bike but not sure how and dont want to mess up this dogs electical unit. The info you have posted has probably saved 1000's to others. Your knowledge is very valuable.
    Mike
