Scorpio alarm wtf?
I've had my Scorpio SR-i900 for almost a year now. It's worked great for the most part besides two small things...
From the very beginning, only one side of my blinkers flashed when the alarm arms/disarms and engages. Not a huge deal but a little annoying considering the money I paid for the system. The real problem is false activations. The "tilt" alarm used to go off quite frequently. Maybe twice or three times a week. There was nothing near the bike and a few times I was standing right there and the bike certainly was not tilted or even touched.
I sent it to Scorpio and they replaced the main control module under warranty and sent it back out to me. I took my time re-installing everything yesterday to make sure that everything was done correctly. Powered it up and it worked fine with a few tests. All signals flashed when supposed to. Great, right? Problem solved... Not so much
Within 24 hours, I've had 6 false activations on the tilt alarm. I tried moving the control module to a different position in the tail along with moving the RFID sensor away so that there is no chance of interference from it. Still have gotten two false activations since I moved everything.
I can't seem to find much info on the net so it does not seem like this is a common issue. Is there something I may be overlooking? The alarm is mounted flat in the tail and mounted solid so that there is no movement. I tried two different orientations/positions in the tail and it hasn't helped. All wires & sensors are hooked up correctly.
TL;DR - Scorpio SR-i900 with many false "tilt" activations. Tried several troubleshooting methods and was sent out for replacement by Scorpio and still have the issues.
