Yamaha YBR125 + Cyclone V2 Immobilizer/Alarm

I have an '06 plate Yamaha YBR125 and have just paid a professional fitter to install the Cyclone V2 alarm/immobilizer on my bike.


I'm very happy with the fitting and everything works absolutely fine EXCEPT the remote start.

For some reason the key still has to be in the igntion and in the ON position for the remote function to work which is obviously kind of pointless.

Not sure if this has been an oversight on his part but he claims to have tried multiple different solutions with no success.

Has anyone had a similar experience and managed to solve it at all? It's main purpose is for starting the bike while I'm getting geared up on colder mornings so the heated grips are ready to go! :laugh:

Any advice is gratefully received!

Remote start

As the ignition switch is the main power on/off to your bike I don't see that any after-market system would be able to offer remote start unless your bike is already switched on.  Purely from a safety point of view its not a good idea to be able to start any machine with the steering lock still on! 

I might be possible for a manufacturer to fit such a system if it was an integral part of the bikes electrical system and in the design brief from day one but I think the remote unit on your Cyclone alarm will remain nothing other than a novelty trick.

Sorted!

Marcus,


I've now figured out the problem - turns out this particular bike had a built-in device which needed bypassing with a resistor setup :) Remote start now work perfectly.

It's worth noting that the remote start ONLY works in Neutral and the second it kicks out of neutral without the key in the ignition the bike just cuts out.

My thinking behind this is that on colder days I can get the bike warmed up while im inside the house getting geared up so its ready to go when I am :) lol

So you can start your bike with the ignition switch off and the steering lock on?
