Hi all-

First of all zero riding time this Memorial Day weekend due to this. Obviously zipped through the HID low beam install... During this process disconnected the negative lead to the battery and when I reconnected the battery - lights worked-sweet! But the godawful alarm reset itself and now I can neither start the bike or shut the damn alarm off.

I have-

-tried to bypass by using instructions found on other posts at the 12 pin plug. Three of the wires told to jump were the right color, one was not but was the right pin. So I pulled them out and twisted them together. No dice. Engine still disabled and alarm going off.

-tried unplugging all the connectors to alarm.. No dice..

What now? I wouldn't mind removing it altogether as I can't seem to find a replacement fob anywhere.. Very frustrating..

Thanks for any help anyone can give!

-Jeff

The alarm does have an internal battery. If you do have a FOB and it does not seem to work try setting and then unsetting the alarm as it may take several tries to get it to re sync back up.
Is this what you tried?


To get the bike running again you need to jumperthe following pins on the 12 pin connector. Pin 3 (black/white/yellow) to pin 11(black/yellow); this is the starter button signal to the starter relay. Then jumper pin 10 (green/violet, switchedpower) to pin 6 (blue/violet,engine electronics relay).

No FOB... I bought it used and it the PO didn't have it...

Here is the problem... No green/violet wire.. I have a brown going into pin 10. Pulled pin 10 and twisted it together with 6 which was blue/violet. Didn't work. The other two pins were as you said.. Thoughts?

OK the only brown wire I show is on pin 12 and it is a ground. Is there no green/violet wire anywhere on that connector? That is switched power coming from the emergency cutoff relay (operated by the red lever under the starter button). You need to find some switched power to tie to the Blue/Violet wire.

I believe there is a solid green wire... So Brown is ground.. I'll tie that one back in... Thinks its the solid green?

Yes the green/violet and green are usually switched power. You can check it if you have a meter or test light.

The only issue with using the green wire is that the cutoff switch may no longer work.

One last thought... Will tapping the right power wire complete the circuit bypassing the alarm? I am assuming the the lack of completing the power to ignition switch is tripping the alarm?

No, you need to unplug all connectors going to the alarm and it will eventually die when the internal battery goes down. Or just remove it all together and place in sound proof box.

Be sure and check the kill switch function after you get it going as that is tied to that elusive Green/Violet wire.

Ok... Found a green/violet but coming into another plug (smaller) tried jumping it to the b/v... No luck... Tested for power and the green and several of the others have power.. Tried several combos to no avail.

Ok..... Figured it out... I was focusing on the wrong half of the 12 pin plug.. I actually pulled all of the alarm system out and was able to clearly see the wires you were referencing.. For those of you reading this in the future ---- jump the male end of the 12 pin connector.. The rest of the alarm system can be pulled out and reinstalled later if you wish..

Four wires total... I will buy a replacement alarm system w/fob in the future if I ever want to replace the system.. For now I know I never have to worry about it..

Creates some nice space that I can use back there as well.

Thanks for all of the help.. Great site!
