    Anti-theft alarm

    Although i have the bike , 2008 RT, for a year now, recently i found out it is equipped with
    factory anti-theft alarm. I don't even know if it works, or what is it supposed to do.
    Can anybody shed a light on this?

    It is supposed to make loud noises if somebody messes with your bike. How and whatnot - I have no idea.

    There was a key fob with original purchase to arm/disable. Still available at a dealer.

    Forget if a separate manual or it was described in the owners manual on operation


    And yes...loud enough

    Kinda slow here, so figured i bring this one up
    I have used after market alarm, still have a Gorilla on my other bike, and yes, they have to be armed
    in order to function. I see nothing in the owner's manual about it. It only mentions about some warning
    light on board, no siren.

    The alarm sits under the pillion seat on top of fender towards the taillight.
    Probably a separate manual for the alarm system then.

    You live where alarms are a necessity or travel thru I assume?

    I never set my 05RT's on purpose the few years I had it.
    Bad folks just don't seem to seek the Beemers as targets...lot rarer than shiny cruiser bikes and SUZHONYAM sportbikes where the market supports a rapid stream of parts.

    Or we have been real lucky for many years and miles with two bikes at a time out on the road

    That is how i found out i have a alarm, when i inquired what the box behind the tail light is.
    Don't know how to arm it, am not even sure it works. Don't care for it, was just wondering
    how it works, or can be checked.

    Thanks Mike! I never received a remote for the alarm, so there is a chance that it does not work
    Although, it makes no sense to me why have the unit on without being functional. Am the third owner
    of the bike, so don't know what is up with that, as well as the one i bought the bike from. Will try contacting
    the dealer the bike was originally purchase from , maybe they can help me out with this.
    Thanks again for the manual!

    Max BMW parts fiche for your 08RT shows this info for two new ones:
    65 75 2 337 407 REMOTE CONTROL - 433 MHZ 2 ea $54.57

    Found a used one here but it is in the UK:

    There is a procedure in the manual on how to pair it with your alarm which I had to do after replacing the battery in mine when I first bought my used 07RT. I honestly can't remember if I got one or two. I will check and if I have a second I would be glad to send it to you so you could test and make sure your alarm works before you go through the pain of buying the remote.
