Alarm installation

Hi! It's been awhile since i've needed help. Maybe I should stop lurking as much, anyways.

Last week, my roommate's motorcycle got stolen parked RIGHT next to mine, a 1989 KLR..Which concerns me (As it should, to be fair)

Since then, I have ordered an alarm. I can easily hook the shock sensor, and relay up, no problem. But, the issue i'm running into is finding the wiring for a few things. I can't find a reliable wiring diagram.
Ignition Kill - debatable if i want to even hook that up
and the turn signals, to make it flash all the signals when it locks.


Knew i should have bought the service manual

Also! I'm part of the 20k club now.

Lock your wheel "buy a quality lock" and your steering stem, better than an alarm IMHO.

I thought appearance of VStrom by itself was a good anti-theft:mrgreen:

They broke my steering lock when they stole my roommates bike, I have a disc lock, but Attention grabbing is a good thing to have.

Also, my roommate had a rusted Gen 1 spraypainted KLR.

Doubt it had to do with appearance

ABUS Extreme Security Chain Systems
I'm more in favor of a big, strong chain & lock and comprehensive insurance with a reasonable deductible and all the farkles scheduled (listed for the insurance) rather than an alarm that is too often ignored or the thieves get away before you get there. Even in an apartment building there is probably something secure to wrap a chain around, or do it yourself--drill into the paving, put in an anchor sleeve and eye bolt, epoxied & deformed to make removal difficult.

"Older people who are reasonable, good-tempered, and gracious will bear aging well. Those who are mean-spirited and irritable will be unhappy at every period of their lives.

"Let each of use properly whatever strengths he has and strive to use them well. If he does this, he will never find himself lacking."
