It can be bypassed by re-fitting the dummy plug that comes with the bike, mind you the alarm makers insist on this plug being returned to them to effect insurance cover or something.
I quote from the fitting instructions:
• The alarm connector is an unused black
coloured terminal block. The shorting plug is
the cover for this terminal block which is fitted
with a double hoop of black cable.
• The shorting plug must be returned to
with the registration
It's a bit silly considering that any would-be thief or owner could get a replacement dummy plug from their dealer, it's part number T2500396 and costs about $6.
Alternatively a new one can be knocked-up at home using components from the likes of RS. The contacts to be linked up with a piece of wire are 1-2 & 3-5 :
