Thanks for the reminder, haven't had much coffee today, lol...standing around with it in my hand. Anyway, the 6 wire looks very much like the 12 wire so I am going to either tug on it from one end or just cut off the rubber shield and re-wrap it after I am sure. It looks like there is a gray stripe on 6 but upon examination with magnifying glass I don't think so, anyway thanks again!The wire colors are different on the short plug and I don't have them handy.
Just use the readable pin numbers and for 2003 you just jump two pairs only pin 3 to pin 11 and pin 10 to pin 6. Check the wires to the pin with a multi meter to make sure you get the right ones.
For the 05 and up you add pin 2 to pin 6 and 10 as they powered the flashers differently. If you add pin 2 to a 2003 your flashers will be on all the time.
With the 3 pin connector unplugged the engine will not start the immobiliser is as though its in the active state. In the end I just cut the red / white cable and can hear the relays operate allowing the engine to start.You can just unplug the three pin connector to remove the short. This photo, with the connector circled in blue, is an earlier bike but the facelift connector is similar. Your connector will have a Green, a Red/White, and a Brown wire.
I agree there is some form of functionality left in the control unit / alarm that's allowing the simpler method of cutting just the one wire to work. I did think of trying to break open the alarm to get the battery out of it. Had second thoughts though as the alarm has some functionality left. and in the end cut the wire in a place that would allow me to solder it back together if ever I decided to try and break open the alarm to get the battery out of it.That means that there is still some type of functionality in the alarm that requires the switched power (green wire) to operate and allow the relays to operate. Most people just do the bypass on the 12 pin but if it is working I would leave well enough alone. Thanks for the feed back.
Have you gotten an MOT on a bypassed unit before? Just curious if they catch it.
