    I found several links for the same product, most of which were in the $200 range

    If you lose your original fob and just have your 'not yet programmed' spare fob, you are going to make a lot of noise. Same goes if you take your stock key ignition system with you as back up. Once you disconnect the module, the alarm will go off. No way around it, if you lose your fob, your going to make a lot of noise.

    Okay, I have a correction to make. My wife just pointed out to me that I could program the second fob and just let it run out of battery over the period of a couple of weeks and put it, and an extra charging cable, in one of my saddle bags. Then when or if I lose my primary fob, I simply find my secondary and plug it into a power source, after about 20 seconds, I can start my bike and continue charging my replacement fob.

    Let that be a lesson to me, if I really need a practical answer, I should ask my Saskatchewan born MRS.

    Installed the Victory key-less ignition June of 2015 in my XCT. The unit came with 2 fobs. One fob would not hold a charge after a couple or weeks and left me stranded until the working fob was run out to me. My Vic dealer ordered a replacement fob that was received 6 weeks later, (No backup fob during that time) All was fine for the next month and then the new fob would not hold a charge. Had my dealer order another fob but after a few weeks I decided to uninstall the unit and return it for a refund. I would not recomend the Victory Key-less ignition.

    It warmed up here in IL! I just installed the Vic Keyless/Alarm was super simple to install.
    I made the mistake of bumping my scooter right after the install. What a crazy piercing noise! I hadn't read anything about arm/disarm at that point.... Luckily I hadn't replaced covers and seat yet and I just unplugged that sumbitch real quick!
    I will adjust the settings to avoid that sort of incident in a parking lot elsewhere. So, IT WORKS!
    I'm riding a little over 4 hrs to The Vic Shop tomorrow. Gonna get my Dyno-Tune on!

    Their regular price is $459.00. So the Victory owners price is a decent discount. Be sure you're looking for the DGD-KIM-V2 for VISION / CROSS ROADS / CROSS COUNTRY. Be sure to look at the one for your specific model. Digital Guard Dawg - DGD-KIM-V2 Keyless ignition & security for motorcycles

    Question on factory Victory keyless/alarm can you use the original key and key cylinder ignition in place of the keyless ignition part that comes with the system?

    I'm a bit lost. The whole purpse of this kit is KEYLESS IGNITION. The Alarm aspect is just added value. If you just want an alarm, there are probably less expensive options available. Probably via GuardDawg

    No. there is no "Y" connector provided . The push button gets mounted where the factory key is mounted on the wedge, the cylinder is disconnected from the harness and the keyless wiring gets plugged into the harness. I keep the key cylinder in the saddle bag in case of keyless system failure It can be swapped back pretty easily.

    my thought is totally opposite of yours. I would perfer the alarm aspect over the keyless ignition. My understanding is the Guard Dawg has no alarm!?

    This appears similar to the Victory parts I installed (sans key cylinder)

    To be honest it's the exact same Scorpio unit except for the wiring harness which Victory went to another distributer/supplier for. Don't get me wrong the Victory keyless is a great product just looking for the answer if the key cylinder would work in place of the push button start? Edited:: just watch a install video never mind will not work! Thanks tho
