Newb Intro and a few questions

Hi all, just took delivery of a 2007 K12S. Traded up from a R1100S. I also own a project K100RS and have had Harley etc prior.

Have only done a short ride to date but love the feel and nature of the bike so far. Plenty of go that's for sure.

I live in South Australia and really don't ride nearly enough. Myself and a few mates have arranged a ride over to the annual Bathurst Car races early Oct so that should see some enjoyable rides.

Couple of questions (I will continue searching for answers in history)

1: Bike was built 01/2007 does this mean it has the upgraded gearbox and a few minor improvements on the 2005/06 models?
2: Bike came with 2 FOB Sensors that appear to be alarm modules. I did not get any information on the alarm system. By depressing the Rough Button twice I can get an audible beeping and red light on instro panel will flash. I am taking that for Alarm activated. If I press the other button the red light stops flashing and I take that as Alarm off. I did some reading and it was stated that activation and disarming should be accompanied by Indicator lights flashing, this does not occur. Also with the alarm activated I can take the bike off the stand and wheel it without the alarm making any noise, I am also able to start it with the key without issue (this is with the 2 FOB's about 25m away in the house) Any advice
3: Aux power socket connection. Is this a common plug found in any auto shop. I am unfamiliar with what it may look like or be called. Also has anyone updated or is there a conversion to convert to USB

Many thanks love the site and have already spent many hrs reading.

Ok found an alarm manual and can confirm that programming is possible. I can set it up in manual or auto and can enable beeping to indicate on/off etc, but I cannot get the alarm to function test. I have double checked the disabling of the motion sensor and am certain it is activated, but I can pick the bike upright and wheel it around without activating the alarm.

Can anyone offer any advice as to troubleshooting the motion sensor? Location, is it fused etc.
