I've got one(SR-i500) on mine but had it installed by the dealer when I got the bike, so can't give any help with how the install is. I did have them use the connector kit for it so no splicing was needed. It has worked well for me so far. Just keep in mind that if you store the bike and the alarm is on it will drain the battery. The longest I've let it sit without starting it and not having a charger on it has been 3 weeks and it was fine.

I installed one on my 650, no problem. I used the connector kit sold by Scorpio easy plug in installation. I ordered mine with the perimeter alarm and use it when I'm leaving gear on the bike. Have had the alarm on the bike since new (2 years) and have had no problems.

I mounted my "brain" behind the battery, on the front edge of the tray - moved one of the relays. The perimeter alarm sensor mounted at the right side near the back and the antenna I routed along the left side sub frame rails. A little hard to get to the rear light/brake light wiring to make the connections to the lights, but other than that it is a simple installation.
