Not sure about the lcd screen or window up/down, but the Clifford G5 has one. EW can enlighten you more on it.

Clifford G5 product (not clifford Matrix models) will work on manual transmission cars but it does not have the LCD transmitter. Clifford will have a new unit called the Avant Guard 5.5X that will have LCD and manual start this summer. Expect $1000+ on the 5.5X.
<---Sells and uses Clifford remote start on manual transmission cars.

you have to bypass the clutch to make the car think that it is engaged when trying to remote start the car

Not only that, for it to be safe, you need to have an exit procedure that REQUIRES you to leave the car in neutral and will not attempt to start if you don't go through the exit procedure (LIKE CLIFFORD G4 & G5 PRODUCT).

Is there a way to hook one up on a bike? It seems it'd be very complicated if not impossible since there is a auto-kill for the kickstand when in gear and the normal kill switch.

It can be done but I would want to see the bike to check out the kills first.

I practiced leaving mine in neutral for about 4 months before I installed the remote start.

If I ever get some extra cash I'll hit you up to see how much and if it's do-able on mine. I just recently bought all new plastics, jacket, and some other stuff so the bank is pretty empty for me right now.

Yes, they do work but since the alarm can not tell if the car is in gear it is not safe. Forget once or have button pressed by accident and it can be expensive.

Clifford or Compustar...

DONT BE A DUMBASS and buy an alarm not designed for remote start on a manual tranny. My buddy has a Matrix setup on his Lexus IS300 and he had it at the bodyshop to get his spoiler repainted. He tried remote starting and his car jumped 4 feet intoa brick wall. The bodyshop paid for it...really lucky on that. Then the same car went to the dealership to get an oil change. The receptionist was screwing with the remote and his car AGAIN jumped 4 feet into the back of a BMW. Luckily the dealership is paying for it. He hasnt had his car for 3 weeks total from all this repair, his car has been fucked up twice and you know repairs NEVER come out as good as factory stuff.

Another friend with an RX7. His dad moved his car, left it in gear and put it in the garage. He remote starts and his rx7 went into the garage wall. He got to spend $1500 fixing his car.

dont be dumb, dont put the alarm on your car if you cant afford the right one, its not worth it

Nobody touches my keys or drives my car except me. If I drop it off somewhere I let them know about the remote start. On mine you have to hold 2 buttons down for 2 sec.
