old harness no alarm, new harness has alarm

Was just reading about alarms and working without alarm. The new harness I just installed had an alarm where my bike came without an alarm. How can I make this work? I have not tried to start yet but sounds like it is going to shut fuel and starter. How do I bypass the alarm part of harness??? Thanks

Re: old harness no alarm, new harness has alarm

Todd,


It depends on the year model your harness came from but we have worked out the bypass procedures for all of them. The earlier ones are easiest but they are all do able. My version (05 and up)is posted in the "Files" "Technical" section.

Oh wait you are the guy that had the melted harness - I remember that.

Try this out.

Re: old harness no alarm, new harness has alarm

Melted harness is an under statement to what it did now. It happened about 3 weeks after you came up. The poor bike has been sitting since then. Finally found a 10/2000 harness for 200.00 and bought it. My bike is 01/2000
Is there anything that tells what screws go where? I'm about ready to put back together and trying to remeber long screws/short torx screws, allen head long and short. Sure hope I'm doing it right.... Had a good teacher...

On the Torx - easy way to tell is that if it goes into a well nut (rubber / brass) it is a long one. If it is going into a threaded steel panel or clip nut it can be the short ones.

If you are installing a new harness, you might be able to adjust the connections to the starter relay and fuel pump, so that the harness will not feed the wires back to the alarm area. Do a search for the install instructions for the alarm (as a dealer addition), and you'll see what wires were affected by the installation. Or, it might be easier to do the by-pass as I described.

Re: old harness no alarm, new harness has alarm

My write-up with photos is here

The anti-theft system has 2 switches/relays (or equivalent) that go inline with the starter button and the fuel pump. When armed, both are open, meaning the starter button won't work and the fuel pump won't work. When disarmed, they work as normal.
