How to install a Scorpio alarm w/perimeter sensor

This is my first how to, and my first alarm install so bear with me.
Step 1: Lay out all the alarm components, read all the instructions two times. I bought the Scorpio SR-i500 w/perimeter sensor (remote disable, but I'm not installing it yet) and ZX10R wiring adapter. The pic show the alarm layed out on the garage floor. The red X's are the wiring adapters that are NOT needed for the '05 ZX10R.



Step 2: Determine where the alarm MCU and antenae are to be located. I never use the trunk anyway and figured it is about as good a spot as any. I used velcro to mount the MCU, then routed the antenae along the top upper edge of the taillight housing and taped it in place. The green lines in the pic are where the antenae was routed and taped.



Step 3: Attach the hot wire to the battery (+) terminal, then attach the ZX10R specific wiring adapter into the tail light connectors and into the taillight power. These are pass thru connections and it's pretty easy to figure out what plugs into what. The orange connectors are for the turn signals, the black is the power/ground to the tailight, the green goes to the alarm MCU harness.



Step 4: Locate the perimeter sensor. I put it next to the seat mounting bolt and attached it with velcro. Plug it into the MCU with the included harness.



Step 5: Tuck all the wiring away in the tail section. Zip tie any stray wires. Re-install all your plastic and seat. Follow the easy steps to program the remote and set all the sensors and your done.
Total install time was about an hour, and no special tools needed.



I may lose my image hosting soon. So if anyone can mirror these images and link to them that would be great.
Thanks.

Nice write up. Damn I wish I would have went this route. My insurance company would not insure me(kick ass rate) if I did not install a certified alarm by a certified installer. I went with a Viper and they spliced wires and all kinds of bullshit so now I'm always wondering when the electrical system will act up. I'd like to just rip it all out and be done with it. I should have purchased the Scorpio and had it installed by a shop to satisfy the ins and that way i could remove it easily when trade in or selling time arrives. I sure hope it is a selling point and not a hindrance.

I haven't really played with it much yet, but install and setup were a breeze.
All the sensors work as advertised, shock, tilt, and perimeter.
I'll post an update after I use it in the real world for a month or so.

yea i am a mecp cert. installer the ten is VERY finicy as to what you tap into. i got the remote start alarm off ebay BTW that thing is nice. FYI the perimiter sencor will give you some trouble in about 6 months. figure out witch wires are the trigger and install a siple mercury tilt switch {radio shack about $5} these things are almost fool proof and will always work.

Actually it's some sort of dual axis accelerometer shock and tilt sensor. Supposed to not be as finicky as a mercury switch.
