Benelli Demo Alarm

Clean Motorcycles (Local bike specialists) recently asked me if I’d be willing to sort them out with Spyball bike alarm demonstration model. I said I’d see what I could do as it sounded like a good challenge. After doing some homework I managed to find a 1/12 scale model of a Benelli 1130 which I ordered from the UK.

Once it arrived (thanks to my Mum for posting it over) I set about wiring it up.

First job was to assemble the model so see what space I had and figure out what I was going to do with the cables.

The plan was to fit 3mm amber LED’s in the hazard light locations as well as a small red LED in the instrument cluster.

The bike would then be mounted on a small box which would contain the actual Spyball 6829. Tilting the bike tilts the alarm in the box which is connected buy a small rod which in turn triggers the alarm, just as it would on a real bike.

Once all the cables were run I attached a rubber tube to hide the rod an cables and clipped the bike back together.

With that done I set about fitting the alarm inside the box so it had space to tilt and added an Ignition switch and starter button to the case. This way the Immobiliser can be demonstrated and the tilt and impact sensor can be adjusted to suit.

I also got a little carried away so there is a buzz relay fitted inside the box to sound like the engine is running. It was at this stage I realised that something was missing and reluctantly took the whole model apart again to fit an LED into the headlamp which lights up when the engine is on!

Finally after some testing it was all done 🙂

Next job will be to get some stickers made up for the box and make a detailed video of how the alarm and all the features works.

Until then here’s a quick teaser video of the engine running!
