2000W/885efi/Veto Evo - I'm sure I have the two wires in question. What's the actual problem with your Veto Evo? Not had too many issues, the ones I can remember are:
- Unable to switch alam off after long v. wet v. cold trip - had to start pulling fuses before it would reset.
- Mechanics spiking the alarm when doing work, then never got around to fixing it so they just put the override plug back in the loom (plug now a travel essential after problem mentioned above). Alarm was just giving it sick-puppy-squeeks. Just plugged it all back in, did the reset fobs thing (both buttons 60 seconds or something like that) and I was back to normal....

If you have a look at this page on the Datatool web site they have a few instructions there, including de-spiking information.

am trying to programme in spare key fob.have been in touch with datatool and they say that the two green tagged wires are the ones leading to the trigger switch under the rear panel.they also say that the green tags are quite often removed by triumph dealers upon installation of the alarm.will try again at the weekend.!!!

is the override plug a triumph part? i assume this is removed when the alarm is fitted by the triumph dealer when the bike was new.much to my shame i have wrongly identified the green tagged wires touched them to the positive terminal on the battery ready to programme in a new fob,and the insulation parted company from the wire in a smelly cloud of smoke.so have decided to try and override alarm untill a replacement is found.the wires from the plug to the alarm box are a bit of a mess.however this has not affected the performance of the alarm speaker in any way, as it can still drown out sentences full of colourful strong language.
hope someone out there can learn from my mistake.

Hi Yogi

Sorry to hear about your mishap, hope you get it sorted OK. I believe the override plug is fitted from factory and taken away when alarm is installed. I seem to remember reading somewhere that dealers / alarm fitters have to remove it and sent it back to Triumph / alarm manufacturer (i.e. not give it to customer), but can not remember where I saw this... Glad I managed to get hold of mine though, at least I know I won't be stuck worst case...

torquey t ,you are exactly right with your info regarding the return of the blanking plug,as i found out via my local triumph dealer,norfolk triumph,however after carefull study of the tiger wiring diagram i have been able to create my own blanking plug using the s***** loom from the datatool alarm,however,this still needs a bit of fine tuning as i can now crank the tiger over on the starter without the key in the ignition.during a july trip to switzerland and austria with my brother in law and his new sprint st 1050 we had a setback when we pulled into a french autoroute rest area and accidently parked too close to a radio transmitter rendering the st unresponsive to its fob upon our attempted departure,we then tried pushing the st between 2 trucks to mask it from the radio waves with immediate success,he is now very carefull where he parks.
