usually, this will happen when the FOB battery dies.replace the FOB battery and try close attention to the battery orientation before removal and ensure to install the new battery in the cortrect orientation. let me know if you need more help.Steve

Ok the battery dies not seem bad because it still turns off the alarm and the other fob doesn't work either. Tried to use the code to reset and bypass but cannot get to that either. He said he had taken out the starter relay to try on another bike for diagnostic purposes and when he put it back on it started and he shut off the bike before the key stopped flashing. When he went to leave later it wouldn't start and the alarm going off

if it won't start and the alarm is going means the FOB is NOT disarming the security system.replace the FOB battery.disarm the security system with "2 quick clicks" of the FOB button.if you do not perform the 2 clicks fast enough, it will not disarm. let me know if you need more help.Steve
