 :001: Hi All. I am new to the Forum, registered today. I have a Orange 2015 Tiger 800 XRT. Purchased it last summer. it is fully loaded and in fantastic condition. Best trip so far was NC500 with my son and my daughters partner. We camped most nights, great trip. Bike is off to the main dealer today as the Datatool Alarm is faulty and subject to a factory re-call, will be 2 weeks before I see it again but, even though we are allowed to ride again,  its not a bad thing to have to leave it another couple of weeks before I get out on the road. Going to spend the time re decorating the garage. I like to have a nice place to work on the bikes and escape to when work becomes too overbearing.

I hope to make a positive contribution to the forum. I am not a mechanic but for many years I have looked after cars and bikes so I know enough to get by. I also know enough to know when to pass it on to the professionals!  :008:

Last but not least I have signed up to do my advanced riding test this year with Road Smart. I figure that any new skills can only be a good thing.

Hi and :401:

My 2015 XRT is on its 3rd Triumph/Datatool alarm.  :005: The 1st failed and left me stuck and was one of the faulty recall ones, the replacement started the same symptoms but was just a few months outside the faulty recall period but my dealer still renewed as a normal warranty claim and the 3rd has been fine for years (before end of bike warranty I think).  :028:
Also had the same one on my previous Street Triple for 2 yrs with no problem. AIUI the recall and fault was related to incorrect sealing of the unit allowing water ingress, which made sense for me as it was a particularly wet period when the original failed and my bike not being garaged or covered.
Also owned my 1979 Bonnie T140E from new!

Hi and welcome Matt, in my experience alarms are crap alarmed disc lock yes but forget the wired in types as they are more trouble than they're worth.
