    Bike Insurance and Anti theft devices

    Its time for the insurance on my Tiger. Whilst filling in the form I got to the section asking about security. Im sure my 2013 800xc doesn't have an alarm, but it has an immobiliser, every year i've had to put no security as it asks for make and model. I can't find what make of immobiliser it is. I looked in the manual it says it has but not what type.
    In the insurance drop down menu it lists Triumph Immobilisers.  :002: But has a list of four or five numbered 1-5. So I normally leave it at no security.

    Anyone know how you find out?    :002:

    I’ve checked the Schedule for my insurance and it just says ‘Triumph Immobiliser’. I don’t recall having to choose between 5 different Triumph immobilisers. Is there an option such as ‘Factory Fitted Immobiliser’ or ‘Manufacturer Immobiliser’? Failing that you could email Triumph at ‘after.sales@triumph.co.uk’ and ask them the question. Good luck!

    As a general rule, try to have as few as possible listed, if the premium will allow, as if you list something and forget to use it, you may fall foul of "computer says no"
    You definitely have a Triumph Immobiliser, might be worth giving the company a call?
