Xena XX-6 Disc Lock with Alarm
The alarm lock that beeped wolf
The blasted thing sounds off any time it feels like it. Which is a lot.
And not only while locked on to a brake rotor. This alarm lock has screamed away in my tank bag, in hotel rooms, on a garage bench. And that's while the large silver button is not depressed and locked -- in other words, while the device is not set in "alarm mode."
And it's extremely sensitive. It went off so much on a mildly windy night that my buddy woke me up to remove the thing because it kept waking him up. Using the alarm in a trafficked area is guaranteed to generate any number of false alarms.
I carried this thing on a nine-month ride through Africa and Asia. The false alarms were so bad I removed the battery and would use it occasionally as a disc lock. Basically, I wasted money on this piece off [fill in the blank].

Arrived quickly and works as described. I'm just getting frustrated now that I'm being forced to leave more text in this review.

An Extra Bit of Safety
I ordered the Xena XX-6 alarm the second I first got my brand new bike. I gave it a few test runs in different angles on my motorcycle and it's neither too sensitive, nor too hard to disarm before it actually goes off. If the bike's tilted or someone'd try to move the handlebars, it'll give its little warning beeps, then start sounding a proper and loud alarm for quite some time - loud and long enough to send any amateur thief of nosey person running. I'd definitely recommend this product for an extra bit of protection and peace of mind!

Solid design and bright colors
The Xena XX-6 has definitely give me a piece of mind when it comes to a small but efficient alarm system, very loud and will definitely keep someone for trying to take my bike, small enough to take it on small trips.

Loud for no reason.
This lock appears well-made and is of strong materials. But it has one major flaw--the sensitivity on the alarm is set to 'airflow' or to 'telekinesis'.
I put the alarm on my motorcycle, and the alarm would blare for no reason every 15 to 20 minutes, waking up my neighbors and otherwise annoying the passers-by. Mind you, the motorcycle was parked in a relatively quiet area, against a wall which was recessed and within a closed back-yard. It literally felt that a gust of wind or simply looking at the bike would cause the alarm to go off. A shame otherwise, as the lock itself appears well-made.
If there was a sensitivity modulator in the lock then I would give it a shot, but otherwise this is an unusable product--I can only imagine how often this lock would go off if parked next to a free-way or even a road-way.

Does Its Job
Only time it goes off when I don't want it to is when I try to take it off and am not fast enough with the key. So far no false alarms and I've had it for about a month.

Great product but try it out before you need it to perform.
This is a great product but the one I received was too sensitive and a new alarm module had to be sent to me. Unfortunately I needed it to perform right away and the week to ten days it took to receive the new module made it a moot point. The module was received directly from Xena but will have to be installed in the fall as the bike is not accessible to me now until November. The recommendation is to try it out before you need to depend on it.

Durable, loud, and easy to use.
The alarm is very loud! It is very sensitive so you do have to unlock it fast before it begins to go off and be careful not to bump your motorcycle. I am a fan of its size, it is small enough to fit in the limited trunk space I have on my 2009 Honda CBR600RR. Also, if you decide you do not want the loud alarm then you can also remove the battery while still maintaining the locking security.
