Chatterbox Drone Security system

FYI, I installed one on my Road Star. I bought it because I liked the idea of a "motion detector" alarm that would go off if someone moved or sat on it. I have talked to factory guys - they seem to be in a fog about it. They even admitted to learning from my calling in on suggestions about how to fix it for future callers.

IT DOES NOT WORK !!!

You can sit on it, roll it 10', rock it from side to side - NOTHING !!

It will alarm if I put my own key in it to start without disarming it, but that's about it.

More trouble than it's worth to remove it.

DON'T BUY IT - unless someone has any ideas why it's not working.

Does it have a sensitivity adjustment like car alarms?

Yes, it does have sensitivity adjustments - the book says 3, mine has 4 and nothing changes no matter what setting you use. The owners/install booklet is extremely poorly written. Lots of info left out and confusing. Factory service rep and I figured it out as we went with several phone calls, but it still will not activate with bike motion. That was the main reason I bought it.

I like this idea. Too bad it doesn't work. Keep us posted if you find another solution.
