It seems as though Scorpio does not have a factory connector kit for the FZ09, or maybe their website is not up-to-date. I know that I could use the universal kit. Does anyone know whether any of the existing Yamaha factory connector kits can be used on the FZ09?

I had this same question when I bought my SR-i900. At the time(3 months ago) they did not yet have a OEM style kit for the FZ, and CS wasn't sure if any of their other Yamaha kits would work. I just went with the universal kit for my install and with the exception of having to tap into a couple of wires, it's a clean and super easy install. Love this alarm, got the optional perimeter sensor as well and the passive arming/disarming works as advertised. Well worth the money, imho...

Mine is the older version, an i500 with shock and proximity sensors, and an immobilizer module (I have never connected the immobilizer). I think the biggest difference is the lack of RFID on the i500.....I have to manually arm it, but it does have a pager. I have a couple of Yamaha factory connector kits, so I will take a quick look to see if any will work.

I had an i500 on my R6, which is I why when it came time to alarm the FZ, I went with another Scorpio. 10 years I had the i500 on the R6 with no problems whatsoever. Truthfully, that RFID is kind of gimmicky, and I never use it, preferring to manually push the button to arm/disarm. The RFID range is like 2 feet, so as soon as I step away that distance, it's arming itself whether you intended to or not. But still a super solid, quality alarm...

When I contacted Scorpio they informed they have not seen the bike yet. They asked me to take a photo of the connectors under the seat. Have been to busy to do so. I will let you guys know when I do and see if one of the kits will fit.

They told me the same thing 5 months ago. I guess it's possible one of their other Yamaha plug n play kits would work, but for the few wires I had to tap, it wasn't an issue for me personally...
