    I’m trying to get hold of the plug I’d need to put back in the loom if I remove the temperamental alarm from a 2013 Bonneville SE. I enquired with Fowlers and got the following reply:-

    Unfortunately Triumph do not narrow it down for us which plug is needed on each bike.
    The list of shorting plugs/earth blocks they have to offer is:

    T2505055 is a 2 Wire - £3.79+vat - Backorder but still available and should take around 5-7 working days to arrive from an ordered date.

    T2500050 is a 1 Wire - £1.79+vat - In stock

    T2500396 is a 4 Wire - £3.00+vat - In stock


    You will need to check which one it is you require from the bike

    Does anyone know, or know how I can find out? Appreciate the answer might just be ‘Ask Triumph’ but no harm asking here too!

    Thanks

    Hi Joe,

    I've no idea mate but a photo of the plug it needs to fit into would help those in the know.

    A photo of the inside of the plug with the alarm module unplugged should do the trick?

    Bikes not here right now but might be able to do that in due course. Although I assume I would need the blanking plug immediately to be able to keep riding!

    If you're ditching the alarm anyway, simply cut off the harness about 2-3" from the connector; join 1 to 2 and 3 to 5 - done.

    If you want you can pull out all the other unused terminals

    Triumph won’t tell me via email, I’d have to take the V5 and ID etc. to a dealer to get the part number. Not surprising I suppose.

    T2505055 is not even an alarm bypass connector - it's a ground block retrofit upgrade for T505/T595 Triples from 97-99

    T2500050 is the bypass connector for alarms of the 97-99 vintage - it indeed has "one wire" in a loop between two of the terminals.

    T2500396 is the bypass connector most commonly used on all models since ~ 2000 - it does NOT have 4 wires, it has TWO wires, two loops between respective pairs of terminals

    T2500396 is the one you need for your bike
