Looking under the seat I see the siren is a hot wire and ground (red and black) This is easy enough. Now how about the alarm itself. Is it just a matter of unplugging? Or do you need jumpers between wires to make it work?
You might want to think about installing a switch in the power line to the alarm. I keep mine turned off most of the time but it is still there when I want to use it. I installed the switch in the glove box so it is easy to access.

If this is the type you have look out because it is highly technical.
First disconnect the two ground wires, next unplug the main harness. Then pull on the unit freeing the 2 sided tape retaining system. Turn on the scoot, pull the brake handle and push the starter button. Gauges work? Lights work, headlight, tail light, brake lights? Well close the seat and go ride. ;D.
I have the glass AG type 15amp fuse. Long glass tube in a plastic case. I am going to convert it to an automotive holder with the U shaped fuses. They are easier to find and cheaper. $1.50 for the holder and $1.50 for 5 fuses. I have a couple of wire nuts, which BTW work great in these applications. I have never had one come loose.
I did this and the alarm no longer works, but now when I turn the key off the scooter stays running. How do I resolve this?
Is it the same one as in the picture I posted? Do you have a picture of the alarm? By running, can it be started without the key on? Does the kill switch turn it off? There may be another issue not being seen here. Mine is on a Roketa 250 Sport Touring, I think it is also called a Bali.

I have a alarm on my RoadRunner 50cc Scooters that has a blade type fuse in the alarm wireing bundle. Will pulling this fuse cut off power to the alarm but still allow my key start and kill switch to work?
Krue92's problem was solved by placing a jumper wire where the alarm plug in is. it's the 08 Bali and if you remove the alarm you must jump the Brown/White wire to the Black/White wire. problem solved!! Bali's after June 08 did not come with an alarm but a plug in available if you want to install one. JRR

Sadly the link to the oregonvintage site no longer works. Does anyone know where to find another copy of the Tank alarm removal instructions? I'm about to pull the alarm out of my Tank Urban Racer, as it's been nothing but trouble (although it was probably the reason the previous owner thought the scooter couldn't be started, and sold it to me so cheap).

marklorenzi: I just bought one of the Fleetwoods. They look like a clone of the Honda XRM's they sell overseas. It is in transit now and I should get it this week. I will try to post my experience here. Call me the guinea pig hahaha.
