Do you have the card on you ?
If you purchased the bike new, you should have been given a card with the security code information on it. If it was used, there is a possibility that it was included with your paperwork or in the riders manual (s).

Without the code you are stuck. You can bypass the alarm - once you get to it. See this Article
You asked how do you enter the code? Turn on the ignition and the alarm sounds. Switch off the ignition and watch the LED (alarm still on) count the flashes until that number matches your first digit of the code. switch off the ignition (LED now off). Repeat for the remaining digits of the code. Better wear ear plugs as that sucker is loud that close.


(This is how to ID your self to register a new FOB Sorry)Turn on the key on for one second, then switch it off and right back on again. Wait for one second and do it off and on again.Led will be on and one chirp will be heard. No within 15 seconds switch off the ignitionand look at the LED, it should be flashing. After 1 flash, switch on the ignition LED is off and 2 chirps. Repeat that for each of the remaining digits (2 flashes for 2, 3 for 3 and 4 for 4) until you have flashed each digit.

But then are you sure it is the alarm that is not letting it start? You did try the FOB?

Thanks guys.


With your help and two of us deciphering the owners manual we got it clear. I do have the code and entering it was a pain. Am not ready to admit how many tries it took...

John,

When entering the cards code, shouldn´t that be switch ON the ignition after counting the flashes ?

This is pretty much verbatum from the manual if you want to change the features - like shut down the immobilizer. Alarm
