I believe the previous owner of my bike payed around 400 for that that with the just below top of the line remote, not sure if that's the trs6 or not. I say go for it, it really works at scaring the hell out of anyone getting too close to your bike.
Also look at trips thread about making a ghetto lo-jack, sounds like it really works.

ghetto lo-jack?

Yes its plug n play. The only thing that plugs into your bike is for the blinkers to flash. IF... IF you order that piece. If not its a self standing unit that does not splice into your bike's wiring. All you do is plug the add-on's into the alarm itself.

I'll show you...

The alarm itself (with power wiring harness and Big Dog adapter pluged in)


The "add-on" wiring harness and main power harness



My Big Dog blinker wiring connector


The perimeter



The ignition kill aka starter kill


All together


The single black wire still curled up is the antennea

Well you can set it up to say "turn off the bike as a thieve is riding away" if in range. BUt basically its nothing more than a relay inline of "no-starty" wire, that is triggered by arming the alarm.

Without that, a thieve could start the bike even with the alarm siren going off.

is that something that would be hard to wire into the bike? are the wires easily available?

Well that's the only thing... You need to figure out where to wire it in. All you want to do is to in-hibit the starting. So you can wire into anything... safety switches, run/off switch, but they tell you to do it to the ignition. I would air caution. Not many ignitions are going to like that. I tried it on the big dog... it said NO. You could splice it into the remote starter wire (not the big one, the small wire that just tells it to go) itself. It don't matter...
