Alarm wiring removal??? Anyone???

Has anyone removed the goofy plug and extra wiring to clean up the area around the airbox??

Removing the SAS and canister and was wondering... Not sure if any of those wires are looped back to each other... Would love to just cut them back and add some heat shrink.

Don't bother. You are asking for problems.

Yes, its possible and I have done it on my 990 harnessed 950 EFI project.... the only thing that needs to be retained is the tie between 3 wires, off hand its the two ORG and the ORG/BLK. Pretty much everything else can be pulled back to the neck area and shortened.... If you want to go further, you might be able to pull them 100% from the harness. However it is a limit return on the investment of time/effort to do so.

I tried jump starting my bike from a bmw X5 and the alarm box started smoking??
I removed it.
I too would like to get rid of the wiring all together as I'm fitting Safari tanks.
Keep us posted.

The orange wire is from the ignition switch, via the kill switch. It is hot when both the above are in the run position.
The dummy plug (or the alarm if fitted and ready to run) connects this to the orange and white which gives power to the fuel pump relay and power relay.

All the other wires can be cut back and insulated. Or pulled all the way out the harness.

Yes take that shit out.
I've removed the alarm wiring back to the wires root on three bikes.
On the same bikes I've also remover the complete abs wiring harness's
and changed the R/R wiring to direct to the battery. Installing a Mosfet
R/R

Be sure to identify the two wires that are connected (with a small jumper
wire) in the alarm plug and connect them to each other permanently!

Might as well bring the low octane wires to a switch up front while your at it.

Twist it or crimp it or solder it, Max
