TO HELP YOU ALL WITH META 357T V1 AND V2
CALL ABACUS ALARMS 02086771999
THEY CAN SUPLY AN BRAND NEW ALARM FOR £150 INC POST AND ALL WIRING DIAGRAMS
I PURCHASED ONE AND HAD LOTS OF TECK HELP IN FITTING IT
BUT BELOW IS WHAT I HAVE WHEN MY ALARM FAILED
HOPE THIS HELPS
LOOKING AT THE CONNECTOR CLIP AT TOP WIRE GOING OUT OF BACK OF CONNECTOR META 357TV2
THE PIN NUMBERS ON TOP ROW ARE 6,5,4,3,2,1
MIDDLE ROW 12,11,10,9,8,7
BOTTOM ROW 18,17,16,15,14,13
THEN THE SINGLE CONNECTOR ARE CLIP TOP, TOP ROW 1A BOTTOM 2A
DEPENDING ON WIRING OF THE BIKE LOOP
1 AND 2 (POSIBLE PIN 4 AS WELL)
THEN LINK 1A AND 2A
PIN 1 = ENGIN IMOB RELAY N.C.6
PIN 2 ENG IMOB RELAY C.4
PIN 4 ENG IMOB RELAY NO.5
1A CRANK IMOB RELAY C.7
2A CRANK IMOB RELAY NO.8
PIN 10 SHOULD BE CONNECTED TO PIN 4
ALSO LOOK AT ALARM TRIGER CIRCUIT PIN 9 THIS COULD BE CONNECTED TO THE SIDE STAND OR CLUTCH CIRCUIT (ALARM SOUNDS IF CLUTCH LEAVER OR STAND IS ACTIVATED BEFORE THE ALARM IS DISENGAGED
CLIP NUMBERS ARE THE SAME BUT 1A AND 2A ARE NOT IN WIRING HARNESS
LINK PINS 1 AND 2 , 3 AND 4 . LOOK TO SE IF PIN 8 IS CONNECTED TO THE CLUTCH OR SIDE STAND AS PER V2 PIN 9
ALSO LOOK AT PIN 9 THIS IS THE ACCESORY LOOP CIRCUIT (SEAT POD ?)
EMAIL ME IF YOU WOULD LIKE THE LIST
BUT REMEMBER EACH BIKE IS DIFFERENT SO A GIXER 600 K2 WILL BE DIFFERENT THAN A K6 WIRING HARNES
Looking for info on the META357T as my dragstar 1100 is fitted with one and suddenly will not respond. Would you have the instructions for the META357T so I could try to by pass the alarm Spent all day tracing the wires but a bit relanctant to start un-wiring the alarm. Help would be appreciated.
on my bike when the meta packed up i
could the alarms internal battery be flat ?
if so switch on the ignition then press the button on the fob to dis arm the alarm (alarm and indicators should blink) then you should be able to start the bike also check that the fuse for the alarm is ok
if this dont work sounds as if the alarm has packed up
if you changed the bike battery as the old one failed it has been known to take out the alarm as well contact ABACUS CAR ALARMS TELL 02086771999 I PURCHASED A NEW 357TV2 FOR 148.95 INC POST AND FITTED MY SELF
Just tried it and the bike turns over - hooray after a week of ripping off the tank, dismantling the wiring harness cover etc, etc. Won't start yet as I havew to put all connections back on but do I need to do anything in relation to the joined wires as you stste or should I just leave it, I can see two sets of wires that look the same colour that are joined together with one of the alarm wires. Many thanks so far - I wish I had found the info this time last Sunday but at least I know what the wiring harness looks like.
if connecting the 4 wires has got the bike started then leave all the rest alone as some are protection circuits and disconecting could stop the bike starting
if you wanted to you could dismantle part of bikes harnes and reconect the colored wires back together removing the alarm wires but its a lot of work
meta use black wires for all conections to stop people bypassing the alarm and stealing the bike. grate while it works but not so good when it packs up.
glad to be of help
Just got round to connecting bike up putting tank on etc. Bike turns over but will not fire, fuel pump is working but I don't seem to be getting a spark at the plug. Also when I put the indicator on all four flash. Sorry to be a pain bit missed the best week for weather and doing my head in now.
Any ideas mate
have you defanatly conected 1and 2 together and 3 and 4 if there is no connection to one of them then the bike will not start
fuel pump prime on my bike and also if alarm is on when i press the start button the fuel pump pumps which indicates that the alarm is on
have you removed the alarm box and only have the connector on the bike if alarm box still on then an other circuit could be in use
if no alarm box left on then there is some other wire that might need connecting
if bike has no spark then 3/4 might no be connected 1+2 are starter cut out on gsxr and 2+3 are ignition cut out so there are 2 imobelisers
but on your bike there could be an extra loop that needs connecting
give abacus a call he will try to help also offers a payment of £5.00 to connect to his web site and down load the circuit diagrame for your bike plus lots of other info on meta alarms refundable if you buy an alarm from him also will code old remote to new box so you have 3 remotes
i am not offering or selling for abacus i was told about them from a bike dealers and thats where they get there info from so i whent to abacus to cut out the middle man
the only other way to make sure the bike works is to strip the bike harnes down to find where the alarm had been atached then reconnect the origional wires in the harness my gsxr all wires cut where the same so pins 1+2 black wire with red tracer had been cut at ecu and pins 3+4 whent to a blue wire with a black tracer another ecu connection
for the indicators all i had to do was trace the wires and re-conect the wire that had been cut this is a lot of work to do but it is the only way of compleatly removing the alarm and put the bike back to origional, note not all the wires in the alarm are used
or find a 2nd hand harness and fit that to the bike, if you decide to fit an new alarm then that will cost £250 as the t1 is not available
unfortunatly withought the bike here and to see connections i an unable offer any more advice
hope you get it sorted if i can help further email me or you could send photo of the connector ill try to work out how its wired but not easy to do
I bet you thought all was sorted but no chance - been away on business so not had chance till the weekend and what a weekend.
Could,nt join the abacus site due to password verification but managed to get a cloured wirng chart from e-bay.
Tried tracing wires etc but it appears that when the alarm was fitted the wires that run from the connection to the alarm and then to the source have been relaced with black wires.
So if I look at the plug on the inition switch a black wire runs from the plug to the alarm and then another from the alarm to where the feed must come from.
I have actually taken the whole loom off now so I was going to trace 1,2,3,4 to understand what connectors they coming from and going to and the same with all the other wires.
I wish I had left alone and just paid for a new alarm.
I did get in touch with a guy posted as alarmman that appears on the forum and he is based in Nuneaton which is close to Wolverhampton so might be an option.
Anyway lets see how things progress.
I brought a MT v1 + V2 Pin out diagram from Abacus* and shorted the appropriate wires (1+2, 3+4) at the alarm plug, so I could work on my viffer unhindered by the alarm, one thing I did find out, the alarm still has to be plugged in for the bike to start, but I guess this depends on which cut-outs your alarm fitter used, one of mine was on the ignition circuit, dont know about the other, the fuel pump relay was untouched.
Looks like shorting the wires doesnt actually effect a cut out circuit, but convinces the alarm that everthing is just fine, since mine is armed, but didnt fire the movement alarm when I moved the bike about.
MY meta had gone zombie and forgotten which fobs were register, cos it was off the battery for 5 month, and I kept triggering the 20 hour lock out by mis entering the code, the damn fool fitter put the LED in the tail, and you can't reach the key and see the LED...
*Still got 4 credits left to buy 4 more pin outs, if anyone has a suggestion for popular alarms that would be good to have the wiring for. the credits are only valid for a limited time, so suggestions are welcome.
From alternators to zip-ties, Wemoto's got it, and we'll send it anywhere.

I may well get the pin out from abacus so I at least know what goes where on the META357T
One mistake I did make was that I decided to cut the wires at the back of the plug and join them together and mentioned the bike turned over but would not start - do you think ths could be due to the plug being out - should the wires from the plug be joined also?
On the alrm front I have been able to move the bike around without setting the alarm so it has been on the way out - now chance of moving at the moment though
One of those where I should have left alone and splashed out the cash for a new one.
When I short any system, I generally just just get 2 inches of wire/strip the ends, and jam the ends in the back of the appropriate holes on the connector, no cutting or unplugging, unless specifically told to.
For example, wires 1+2 could be a safety interlock to stop the alarm arming with the bike running, one end is on the fuel relay engine speed sensor, so the alarm can see the engine is turning over already (the fuel relay sensor generally reads the engine revs if they are over 1500, the relay is activated, and the pump goes live).
Now you short this, because you want to convince the alarm the bike is at 1500rpm, AND you still want the other end to read and trigger the fuel relay, if you cut at the pump end, the relay cant get a signal from the rev sensor, if you cut the alarm end, then your short wont close the rev detection circuit on the alarm, convincing it that the bike is already running.
This scenario is completely fictitious, just to demonstrate the difference between shorting 2 pins, and making them closed circuit removing the alarm, which is what it sounds like you did. Because you removed the alarm, none of the cut-out cicuits will be complete, which is why you leave the alarm on and lie to it, so it activates the cut out circuits for you.
Why d'ya think I used a ficticious scenario.
And I showed my mate how to wire the HT to the handlebars and fit an RFID tag to his leathers with matching reader on the bike....do tell me how 67,000 volts feels.
Not like the most basic skills at using google would reveal far more.
Hi mark thanks for reply to my meta 357T problem could you email me the information on the terminals it may help!!! ill try bridging terminals 1 and 2 3 and 4 this weekend
hi i was wondering if any body could help me please... i have a gsxr 600 k4, got a meta 375T alarm on it...the problem has happen a couple of times now. the problem is that the hazard light start to flash then wont stop...there is also a ticking noise comeing out of the alarm box.... the only way to make it stop is to disconnect the main battry supply and wait for 10 or so minutes...i can then reconnect the battry and seem to solved the problem, the bike starts fine and runs fine. can any1 body help me pleasssseee?? thanks lee
