scorpio alarm + cbr = useless

WTF!!!
went to go do an experienced riders course today. When it was time to start my bike just wouldnt start!! I am fukin convinced that its the alarm on my bike thats draing my battery. Reading the "my bike wont start" posts makes me come to the conclusion that most bikes that wont start have an alarm system on it.

Is there anyway to have my scorpio alarm and my battery work at the same f'n time?

PLEASE HELP any suggestions??

if you have ignition kill option installed that might be the problem
you would know for sure if you try to start it and it wont
even though the battery got enough juice ( headlight working fine
and bright )then the ignition kill is the problem
Now if you do not have an ignition kill installed but your battery is dead
then try to charge it and see how long will it keep the charge



If it doesn't challange you it won't change you

I was considering getting the sr-i500 without the ignition kill, but all of your dead batteries scare me. How long are you away from the bike that the battery dies? Are the batteries dying over night or over the couse of a week or month?

I've had the SR-I500 for over a year and have never had any problems starting my bike. How often are you guys riding your bikes anyways??? Maybe it's just dying cuz you're not riding it enough?!?

Yea, I want to know that too. I am an everyday rider so as long as these batteries arent dying over night I'll be ok. How long is it in between rides for you guys with the dead batteries?

i let the bike sit about a week and the battery died for the first time (SR i500 installed - no ignition kill, no led) and since then it died when sitting shorter intervals. Its plugged into a battery tender now for the winter so we'll see. But your battery might be old too and just not carrying the same charge it used to. Combined with alarm, that could be your problem

i have the sr-i500s on my bike, I havent had any problems. Are these 03 bikes? If so maybe the battery isnt charging properly and if theyre newer you may have a charging problem similar to the 1krr's.

I have the sr-i500 installed on my 05 with ALL the options and I have never had any issues with it. The dealer installed it for me and they did not use the quick connect harness. They wired it directly and they said that's actually better (why I am not sure it was like a year ago) anyway no problems from this 05' :) Maybe it because i got the better Tribal one hahaha just kidding.... Talk to Airtronix they should be able to help you with it.

i called anitronix and they said that is close to impossible that the i-500 could drain the battery. If it did drain the battery, it would have taken 40 days or so to do. That alarm, he says, runs off very little juice. My problems may be caused by faulty wiring from install or faulty battery, maybe even deeper problems than that? The guy said to try testing the battery, checking the charge, then removing the battery from the bike and letting it sit for a week or so. Recheck the battery, if it has lost any power, it is the battery. That battery should hold all its juice and if its not, that may be the problem.
The other thing they guy said was to maybe pull the fuse and check the batterys charge every so often, that would also let you know if its the alarm or other problem. If it is the alarm, go back and check the wiring, that will solve the prob 90% of the time. I have come to the conclusion that it is my battery!
I wonder if that is coverd by warranty?? anyone know??
