Product Information

Plug and Play Defcom3.1b alarm kit for the early renage of KTM motorcycles originally fitted or wired for the Gemel E587 alarm system. Simple plug & play fitment or swap over making fitting a breeze. This alarm is the factory option on many KTM motorcycles. The kit comes with our basic fitting kit which includes a plug-in seat sensor, cable ties & Velcro mounting pads, (the KTM fitting kit available directly form KTM, not necessary unless you want originality) 

This kit is supplied with the latest version of the Defcom alarm series, the Defcom3.1b (Not Defcom3), this unit encompasses Bluetooth technology allowing the use of a ID Tag remote fob, this allows the alarm to automatically arm & dis-arm without having to use the fob, as long as the ID Tag is within 10 metres of the alarm unit. This unit functions in exactly the same way as the earlier DefcomT & Defcom3 models when used without the ID Tag remote fob. Choose above to upgrade one of the standard fobs to the ID tag unit.


ID Tag Option:

If choosing the ID Tag the 'Auto Arm' option above can also be added & will function seamlessly with the ID Tag (Auto-Arm option can also be added if using the standard fobs, but the alarm will need to disarmed every time you want to move or use the bike - can be put into service mode so the alarm will not interfere when servicing the vehicle), the alarm will automatically disarm when the Tag is within 10 metres of the alarm unit. Please note if the alarm is armed by pressing either the standard fob or ID tag button it will also need to be disarmed using the button, it will not automatically disarm even when using the ID Tag. When using the Tag button there is usually a 3 secound delay, this is normal, when using the Tag normally there will be no such delay, there is no delay when using the standard fobs.

Plug and Play DefcomT alarm kit for early KTM motorcycles making fitting a breeze, based on the new Defcom3.1b. This alarm is a Factory option on many KTM motorcycles.
