Alarm system?

Post by ex vtxer » Fri Jan 05, 2018 1:51 am



1) do these wings come with an alarm???
i see a sticker which i didn't notice before by the steering stem that has "alarm" or something i can't quite make out on it.

2) as i'm cruising and let go of the throttle, i notice that bike seems to be braking, slowing down real hard and fast, not gradual. it doesn't coast!

is this normal???

They do not come with an OEM alarm, but maybe the previous owner installed one.
When you let go of the throttle it will snap back to idle position, so it's like shutting it down, the faster your going at the time the more it will drop

thanks Joe. i was wondering about the sudden drop in speed...

the alarm thing, just noticed the sticker. will look at it a little closer over the weekend. but of course, nothing has gone off that i've noticed, but then again, if it's not turned on, then why would it lol. again, thanks

bless
