Honda has the HISS system (its a factory fitted imobilizer system) installed as standard - Smart water/Datatag etc are aftermarket devices which you yourself could get added (although doesn't really stop thieves stealing your bike)

I'm sure it will have Honda HISS (immobiliser system).

Tell the insurance company you have covered all Honda & Fireblade markings with green Kawasaki stickers. This will reduce the risk of being stolen, the value of the bike and hence lower the insurance premium.

In conjuction to the HISS system, I have Datatool alarms fitted to both the Hornet and the Fireblade (S3 & S4 respectively)... After fitting them my insurance premium came down quite a bit (I basically got my money back after two years of being insured with the alarms) - I also have a ground anchor.

thank you all ,
Insurance has gone up £95 ( plus £25 ) to cover the extra 4 month till it runs out .
Got quotes of £334 for 12 month cover when this cover finishes in July ,
so dont think thats bad

i have the 09 blade and have just swopped my insurance over for the final month of the policy, best quote ive got to renew it in march so far is £320 through bikesure thats a |£400 excess but no voluntary and 3yrs no claims, only security i have is the hiss system and a big dog :evilaugh:, pretty sure if i haggle enough and do my homework i should be able to get it sorted for less than £300.

But from the insurance companies point of view anything that identifies parts could mean they get returned even if the bike is parted out.
This can lower there insurance costs.
You're right it can lower insurance costs (the Blade and the Hornet came with Smartwater whilst the VFR has datatag'd panels) although I'm not sure how much it is to have it fitted and how much it'd save you.
