Not sure what connections you left open? You still have the connector plugged into the TSM correct so that your turn signals work and all that jazz? Did you cut the #9 and #12 position wires and connect them together?....thus leaving you with the #9 & #12 positions pigtailed off the connector? If that is the case....then you just cover them so they don't touch anything. A trick we used for military enclosures was to take the end of the loose wire, bend it back over itself about 1/2" and then shrink wrap that. If this is not what you mean....just let me know.

If it was me....I would keep your speedo connector available so that you can plug it back in and read diagnostic codes in the future if you start having problems with the bike. I would put some dielectric grease into each of the terminal positions on the connector and then wrap it in electrical tape to help keep the moisture out.

IF you have no intentions on ever going back to the stock controls set-up on your bike...if it was me I would cut the connectors off for the left/right side....stagger the cuts so no two wires have the ability to touch eachother and shrink wrap the bundle to keep the elements out. Or if you want to keep them....if I remember right those two connectors are somewhat cylindrical in shape....so you could get a plastic plug cover and then some large heat shrink tube. Slide the cover over the open end and then the heat shrink tube to keep it on and better seal it. Home Depot / Lowes carries the larger heat shrink tubing and you could probably find the plug end cover there too.

Just some ideas.

No problem SB....glad I could help.

Hey...do us a favor and let us know where you find the material. Like I said...I have seen the large diameter heat shrink in Lowes / Home Depot....but the plastic caps will take a little digging to find. Might be some in those bins in the hardware aisle.

Just want to add that if you bypass the TSM you will have diagnostic trouble codes present 100% of the time and if you are still using the stock speedo the check engine light will be on all the time also.

I just bypassed my TSM and put 50 miles on the bike to test it and the only two codes I got were expected:

P1010 - Missing password (ECM is looking for the TSM)
U1255 - Serial data error/missing (again, TSM is missing)

The bike ran fine without any issues starting.

Awesome. This is just what I needed. I have security on mine, so does the dealer have to put the ECM or the TSM in service mode?
