Thumb Remove theft alarm (1150)

My "new" 1150GS (2001 model) came with a BMW factory installed immobilizer and alarm.
I do not need it, and I don't want it on the bike; if the battery fails in the remote I am stranded.

I don't want to mess with it before I know I can remove it completely.
I see it has wires going to the main set of connectors under the tank, one wire seems to go to the starter, and one plugs
into the plug that delivers power to the fuel pump.

The plug that controls power to the fuel pump simply plugs into the original, so there it can be simply unplugged.

Advice?

This is not much help... you've probably already looked at the pdf version of fiche # 65_0556 - ALARM SYSTEMS (or something similar). In the U.S. at least, the instruction sheet is NA as a seperate item. Maybe an especially friendly dealer could obtain a copy? It seems worth asking if you have a good relationship with them.

For their cars - and this worked for me with both an '89 e30 & a '95 e36, the factory alarms were entirely plug and play. I traced the control box (singular) and horn to their respective connectors and simply unclipped them. Several tens-of-thousands of miles later, that process worked well.

In fact, I sold both factory alarms sans instructions. So you may have the added incentive of getting some cash for your take-off alarm system.

Good luck and, as always, YMMV.

The actual socket connector for alarm has 3 green/yellow wires, one red/white and one brown. THIS looks like it is fed by fuse #3, unfortunately this fuse also feeds accessory socket, RID and turn signal relay. So you are right just to pull that plug.

One green wire goes to RID and Engine
One goes to horn
One goes to horn relay
Red/white goes to fuse #3
Brown of course is your ever circulating ground -

There were three connector (one at the starter, one controlling the fuel pump, and one under the tank.
The last one a wire has to be cut and soldered back on the original.
You can't go wrong.

I now have a nice BMW-approved shelf for electronics attached to my air filter
