on-off switch

The on-off switch located inside the Coocase..does it not turn off all power supply to it, instead of having to remove the case? Just wondering.

Thanks! To answer your question...

Not to turn this into a tire thread but while we're on the subject...

I am coming up on my 7,100 miles. The tires still look like they're in good shape. People say they've gotten anywhere from 3k to well over 10k miles from them. Being that I am not a very aggressive rider, I hope they will keep holding up. Either way, I will buy these again when the time comes. More than once I've hit a patch of dirt/sand around a blind corner and I think these tires were a main contributor to helping me keep control.

Gray Devil The S48 looks good on the bike. I was going to order one but opted for the Givi V46NT. I'm waiting for it to come in.

LOL Mine blinks when the alarm goes off. I don't think there's any adjustments that you can make, but I could be wrong. I would contact the manufacturer if you really wanted to know.
I think the alarm "system" is just that small extra incentive. It takes a lot for that thing to go off, and even then, you would have to be standing near it to notice.

hamblinc Good to know about how hard it is on the battery

Stoopy Waterproof, I would seriously doubt, but judging by the way my coocase key fob has held up for the last year with various wet/rainy riding conditions, it's water resistant and does just fine.

That neat little remote unlock feature is a 12v power hog and it is always on.

I really like my S48 CooCase, but, wish it wasn't so hard on the battery. I've considered doing away with the electrical hookup and just using the key, but, I really like using the remote.
Thanks for the heads up!
I was thinking it would be pretty easy for somebody to cut off the wire and the alarm system would be rendered useless.
The other thing I was wondering about was if the key fob is water proof.
