    Transport mode

    Hi folks, just bought myself a 2006 1200r sportster, how the hell do you set the alarm to transport mode, bloody thing caused me no end of aggro trailering it home😂

    If it’s like younger Harley’s alarms - switch ignition on then turn off - within around three or four seconds hold both indicator switches on for around 2 or so seconds and you should here some bleeps and the indicators flash. That’s service mode. Simply switch bike ignition back on to cancel.

    Hi there - nope. You can walk off with the fob (on newer machines anyhow). I can see that you really needed to know this setting option procedure before you started your trailering of the bike! Surprised the last owner didn’t suggest it, unless this was an auction or something.

    Thanks for the advice Steve, unfortunately, it didn’t work, yeah previous owner didn’t think about it until I’d gone!, he did text me to say there was a transport mode but he couldn’t remember how to do it! �� good job the mrs was with me and kept turning it off

    Lol. If you haven’t the owners manual for it, they’re are available on line, on the genuine Harley website and other places. Good luck - I’m sure you’ll love the Harley.

    Hi am i missing something here. On my 2009 model the fob can be stashed on the bike temporarily to allow it to be trailered without setting off the alarm. I make a point of doing this when the bike is on the car deck of a ferry for the same reason. Maybe the 2006 bike is different?

    Youtube is indeed your friend. I used it to work out how to override the alarm and start the bike if my one and only ever fob dies or gets lost. Its a bit of a faff but worth knowing. Its also worth changing your override code from the factory setting at the same time. This should make it impossible for thieves to guess

    Why not disconnect the battery, or even easier have the key with the fob in the ignition switch.
