I'm sure it's behind the battery. I suspect the word 'UP' moulded in the case may be a give-away.

You can see it near the middle of the picture here...

Why wire in a another new ignition disable, or does your alarm not work without it?

It's this hijacking feature of scorpio alarms. The idea is that if someone forces you off the bike and tries to ride away with it, you press the remote while they're still in sight and the bike will shut off after a few seconds.

For this, you need to put the hijacking module inline with a critical wire such as ignition or fuel pump. But I'm hesitant to cut those wires as you need to make sure the connection is rock solid. That and in case something goes wrong I need to be able to bypass it even being on the side of the road.

A nice idea I read elsewhere is to use the tip over sensor (assuming the connection being open is the "all is good" side) since even if the connection is not rock solid, it will not cut off the engine immediately.

But afterwards, I read another brilliant idea which is to use a trick fuse to replace one of the fuses in the fuse box (fuel pump probably). You find or make a fuse that is cut but is bypassed by the module (with the original fuse inline). That way if something goes wrong with the wires, you pop in a normal fuse and you're good to go.

Still, I was curious if there was a tip over sensor.

Thanks, did not think of the hijack solution.

If it's not mentioned in the manual, then it's probably not there.

Anyone willing to knock one over while it's running to check ?  :156:

Normally, these things don't cut the engine off immediately, the ECU kills the engine after the sensor keeps reporting the bike is down for a few seconds, otherwise small jumps etc. would kill the engine all the time.

The reason I'm asking is that I was thinking how to wire this ignition disable thing the alarm I got has. I don't want to mess with the ignition/fuel pump wires and I could wire it to the tip over sensor if one exists. But I also have a better idea in the works...

It's there alright under the rear rack as already mentioned.
