Within Ten seconds turn Igniton ON gets 3 tones
You are now in programming mode
Confirmation tone when alarm activated Button 1 for yes, Button 2 for no
Then Press either button once
Which alarm tone ? Rising and falling Button 1, Intermittent Button 2
Alarm to come on with ignition turns off? Button 1 for YES, Button 2 for NO
Then turn ignition off.

I've still got the book.

That's good info, Thanks for sharing  :) [size=78%] I usually press the smooth button 3 times straight after switching the ignition off and it seems to put it in ferry mode. Or is it the ribbed button?  Doh! Can't remember?  I usually do it a couple of times before I get it right anyway! Handy for washing or doing maintenance on the bike. I think you get 3 bleeps instead of the two alarm set bleeps. [/size]

Ferry Mode:
Press the Ribbed button a second time during activation phase.

Indicators flash three times.

I sold my 2010 model to a dealer from holland, he came over in a van to collect it.
We both tried to deactivate the alarm to no avail, he got fed up in the end and just drove off with the alarm blazing in the back of his van !!

All such problems are in the past when you upgrade to an LC. All functions are instantly to hand on the dash with the wonder wheel.

They are when you figure out how to work the alarm too, With the added bonus of saving a substantial amount of money for actually riding the bike  :)
