*** NOTICE***’
Most issues encountered when installing this system are resolved by grounding the unit directly to the battery. This unit will become the heart of your bike having all power flow through it, a strong ground is Mandatory.


We try to keep out website as up to date as possible however we are constantly getting plug and play kits for more bikes, the best way to find out if we don’t have it listed is to give us a call, 877-246-5395.

No, the module only needs to see the key fob for authorization to start not to keep running; we designed the system this way as a safety precaution in case the key fob fell out of your pocket while riding down the freeway or the batteries died while you were mid ride.

Often the first appeal of the DGD-KIM is its convenience or the coolness factor of not having to use keys, but if the system were rated only for the level of security it provides it would still be one of the strongest on the market. What makes the DGD-KIM such as powerful security device is the way it works with your bikes electrical system. A common bike alarm or starter interrupt system is that it only kills one circuit on you bike. This is almost always the case. In the case of the DGD-KIM it is hardwired right into the bikes whole ignition system, so when it’s armed no other circuit on the bike can even get power. None of the typical “jump from here to here” tricks will work. Your bike’s simply dead weight.

We recommend changing your batteries once a year; depending on use you can expect to get 1-3 years out of your key fob batteries.

No, the way the DGD-KIM system works is like this; as you approach your bike, the system begins communication to see if you have a valid Dawg tag with you. If you have a valid tag the system “pre-authorizes” your ignition and accessory circuits, but doesn’t turn anything on. When you flip your stop/run switch to “on” the DGD-KIM sequentially turns on your lights, other Accessories and your ignition on.

No, The Key fobs utilize non-volatile memory and will not lose their programming if either the fob or the module loses power.

Each insurance company is different, this system locks down your entire bikes electrical systems, and most insurance companies will give you a discount if this system is installed.

You can add our optional accessory switch which enables you to turn on your ACC circuit independent from your ignition system as well as the key fob, this is a great option if you are at a show or even just a BBQ and you won’t be at your bike the whole time but want to run lighting or the radio. Your bike will still be protected from someone attempting to hop on and ride because you will not be there with the key fob.
  • Simply give us a call at 877-246-5395 and order another one and it will be shipped out promptly.
  • If you are out of town we can always get your bike started right over the phone or even overnight ship your new key fob to you.

Each tag has its own unique digital code, one in over 6 billion. The system learns your tags each individual serial number.

Yes, each key fob uses what’s called “rolling code” meaning that when it sends a code to the module, the next time they communicate they will use a different a code. This code uses a complex algorithm; so that even if someone stole your code, the next time your system and fob communicate the old code that was “grabbed” is no longer valid and will no longer authorize the module.

The DGD-KIM is a fully sealed unit; we classify the module as “water resistant”. The system has been tested to operate correctly after being completely submerged underwater for over 5 minutes.

Alarm systems and Keyless Ignition systems
They approach the problems of theft in two completely different ways. The Keyless Ignition eliminates your ignition switch and makes it so you never have to use keys, Just walk up flip your Stop/Run switch, thumb the start button and go. When you're done riding you just walk away. It’s true that often the first appeal of the DGD-KIM is its convenience or the coolness factor of not having to use keys, but if the system were rated only for the level of security it provides it would still be one of the strongest on the market.
Alarms typically will have a "starter interrupt" which only kills (1) circuit on your bike, "The Starter" this leaves the bike vulnerable to simply being jump started or simple hot wiring to the starter.
What makes the DGD-KIM such a powerful security device is the way it works with your bikes electrical system. In the case of the DGD-KIM it is hardwired right into the bike whole ignition system, so when it’s armed no other circuit on the bike can even get power. None of the typical “jump from here to here” tricks will work. Your bike’s simply dead weight. Regarding, Single, Dual or Triple Axis sensors; As cool as they all sound, because of the environment a motorcycle lives in, we have never seen one that doesn’t have frequent false alarms from rain, wind or a truck driving by, this is why we don’t try and detect bumps. Also due to the limits of space on most motorcycles, it’s also extremely hard to mount a siren on a bike that can’t be found and disabled in a matter of seconds.

Not at all, we have been selling the DGD-KIM series of systems for over 7 years and have never had a single manufactures warranty issue.

The key fob uses (2) CR2032 batteries.

Our unit is an independent unit so it will work fine with any aftermarket or stock alarm system.

All of our systems come with 1 key fob, you can always add additional key fobs to your system, it just requires giving us a call.

If your key fob looks like an upside down light bulb with a picture of a dog on it, please give you a call at 877-246-5395.

This is indicative of the stop run switch not being hooked up correctly, please ensure that you are on the two stop run switch wires, Either the wires are reversed or you are on the wrong side of the connection. To ensure that you are on the stop run switch wires, take a multi-meter and check for continuity, the two wires should have continuity with the switch turned on and they should not have continuity with the switch turned off. If this is not the case you have no located the stop run switch wires.

If you lose your key fob give us a call at 1-877-246-5395 and we will be able to get you started 24/7.

Yes, each system can learn up to four unique fobs. If you have numerous bikes you can program each of your fobs to operate any of your bikes.

  • We recommend replacing your key fob batteries once a year, make sure to test your batteries and ensure that they have at least 3.0V, if the battery is at 2.99V it is no longer a good battery.
  • After winter storage check your bikes battery, our system needs to have 10Volts for the system to operate.

Our Keyless Ignition system must see 10Volts to operate, you will need to check your bikes battery, it is very likely that it is dropping below 10Volts during cranking and this is causing our unit to not allow the bike to start.

Ensure that you are not testing in a garage, the signal can and will bounce off the cement walls and any metal tool boxes or other metallic objects in your garage giving you the appearance of having a much greater range. When testing for range do so in your driveway or in a parking lot, and walk at your average pace.

All Key fobs are sent in Manual mode, this requires you to press the button on the Dawg tag to allow you bike to start.

We recommend changing your batteries in the key fob once a year; the batteries must have a voltage of no less than 3.0Volts. If the batteries are at 2.99Volts they are no longer a good battery, you will experience a decrease in range.

The LED on the key fob requires very little power to light up, The best way to check to see if your battery is still good or needs to be replaced is to unscrew the screw on the back of the fob, pop both batteries out and use a Multi-Meter to test the batteries, they should be at 3.0-3.3Volts, if they are any lower they need to be replaced.

If they key fobs battery gets very low this is one of the indicators that you need to replace the batteries.
  • If you ignore the indicators of a low battery; blinking LED, Decrease in range, the key fob has one more Barrier to prevent you from being stranded. If you ignore the warning signs of a low battery the key fob will kick itself out of Automatic mode and put itself back into manual mode as a way to preserve any power it may have left. You will need to press the black button on your key fob in order to get the bike to start. ** Warning** DO NOT relay on this as your indicator of needing to change your batteries.
  • In the event your bike will not start, please give us a call on our 24/7 Emergency Hotline at 877-246-5395 and we will get you started right over the phone.

Whenever you purchase batteries for your fobs we always recommend taking a multi-meter and testing the batteries to ensure they are 3.0Volts. The CR2032 is a popular battery however it is not as popular as say a AA battery, this means they tend to sit on the store shelf/stock room/ware house etc. for longer periods of time.

Please see the diagram/info tab to pull up fob learning instructions.

This is to add in our accessory switch, the accessory switch allows you to turn on your accessory circuit independently from the RFID and ignition circuits.

We have plug and play kits for many bikes that don’t require you to cut a single wire, if your bike is not listed on our website for plug and play give us a call and we still be able to do a plug and play kit for you. If we are unable to do a plug and play kit for you, it is still possible for you to go keyless and only requires cutting a few wires.

The way our system works is by controlling your bikes ignition and accessory circuits, it’s almost impossible for us to be the cause of one thing not working. In the event you suspect we are the reason for your headlight, blinker, radio, starter, or any other one specific thing not working you can always check our main wiring harness. With the bike authorized (stop/run switch on and a fob nearby) check our red wire for 12V, then make sure our red with black stripe has 12V, then check our brown wire, whatever voltage is on the brown should be coming out the red wire with white stripe. As long as this is happening it is not our unit causing ____blank ____ not to work. At this point you will want to look further down line and see if it’s a bad relay, ballast, fuse etc. causing your problem.

There are many different mounting possibilities and we know there is limited room on certain bikes so we give you 3ft of harnessing and 6ft of ground wire to find the spot that works best for your bike. Common mounting places include; under the seat, in the headlight bucket, in the fairing and under the gas tank.

If your bikes ignition wires don’t match the wire colors we mention in the manual its pretty easy to figure out which wires go where, you will need to have a multi-meter or test light as well as a something to write with as well as your bikes key.

STEP 1 make sure your bikes keyswitch is in the OFF position, now using your Multi-meter or test light we are going to test your bikes wires, write down the color of wires that currently have 12V with the key switch turned off, you may only have one that is at 12V or you may have numerous.

STEP 2 (if your bikes keyswitch only has an ON and OFF position skip this step) turn your key to the first position, now test the wires and write down the colors of the wires that now have 12V.

STEP 3 Turn your keyswitch to the ON position, now test the wires and write down which now have 12V.

STEP 4 if you only had 1 wire that had 12V during STEP 1, hook up our BROWN and our RED wire to this wire. If you have 2 wires that were at 12V during STEP 1, hook our RED wire up to one of them and our BROWN wire up to the other.

STEP 5 (if your bikes keyswitch only has an ON and OFF position skip this step) The wires that went to 12V during STEP 2 will go our our RED/WHITE stripe wire.

STEP 6 The wires that got 12V during STEP 3 will go to our RED/BLACK stripe wire.

Pull out your phone or a timer and wait literally 45 seconds, this will allow timers to completely reset before testing.


Check to make sure the fobs are in manual mode, the small tags on the fob will walk you through checking or you can find more detailed instructions in our manuals.


Check and make sure you wired up the stop/run switch exactly how we explain in the manual, otherwise your system may not operate correctly.

Click on possible cause for additional detail.


The fobs run off two (2) CR2032 batteries, these are a deep cell battery and must have 3.0 Volts, if they are less than 3.0 Volts you need to replace them, even a battery reading at 2.99 Volts will lead to the fob not operating correctly. ***NOTE*** the LED lighting up is not an indicator of a good battery.


Our system requires 10Volts to operate, if your bikes battery is below 10 Volts you will need to charge it.


Our bike becomes the heart of your bike, you must have  a very good ground, it is highly recommended  to ground the unit directly to the negative side of your battery.


Check your stop/run connections, you must have wired in your stop/run switch exactly as described in the manual or our system will not work properly. With the stop/run switch off check our grey wire for 12V, our grey wire should have 12V and our white wire with a black stripe should not have 12V. Turn the stop/run switch back on and both our grey and our white wire with a black stripe should have 12V.


Check our main wiring harness, with your stop/run switch off, our red wire should have 12V. Turn the stop/run switch on and press the button on your fob, the red wire with black stripe should have 12V. The brown wire and red with white stripe are an independent circuit, whatever you put into the brown should be coming out the red with white stripe, when the stop/run is turned on and the unit is authorized with the fob.

Click on possible cause for additional detail.


Our System requires a strong power and ground signal, make sure we are grounded directly to the battery and that are unit is getting 12V. If during cranking the battery is dropping below 10V our system will reset.


Check to make sure all fuses and relays in the bike are good.


Check to make sure your battery is not dropping below 10V during cranking otherwise our module will reset.


When installing our system on some bikes you may end up having to unplug other connectors on the bike to have space to work, make sure everything you unplugged or moved around is securely plugged back in where they need to go.

4

Click on possible cause for additional detail.


Pull our your phone or other times and literally wait for 3 minutes without touching the bike or the fob, this allows all timers to reset to get an accurate test of automatic mode.


Make sure that when you are setting the fobs down you are putting them on a solid surface (something that is not going to move or vibrate). If you are placing them on something that will move or vibrate like a washing machine, a table people are bumping into this will not give you accurate results.


Make sure you are not doing this test in a garage, shop or crowded parking lot, the RFID signal will bounce off the walls/metal/other vehicles and will give you a false range reading.

5

Click on possible cause for additional detail.


The fobs detect motion, typically keeping the fob in your pocket and walking up to the bike is enough movement to trigger the motion detector, give the fobs a good shake to make sure you are activating the motion detector.


The fobs run off two (2) CR2032 batteries, these are a deep cell battery and must have 3.0 Volts, if they are less than 3.0 Volts you need to replace them, even a battery reading at 2.99 Volts will lead to the fob not operating correctly. ***NOTE*** the LED lighting up is not an indicator of a good battery.


If the batteries in the fob start to get low the fobs will take themselves out of automatic mode and put themselves into manual mode, this is a safety feature to warn you that your fobs batteries need to be replaced.
