I have the same alarm and the factory connector kit had an incorrect plug for the 'orange' (taillight +) and 'black' (ground -) wires, so you have to splice those in using either those T-tap connectors or cutting and soldering (recommended). I'm pretty sure thats your problem since the taillight + is how the alarm knows when your ignition is ON/OFF.
Another thing is your understanding of how the alarm works is incorrect. Basically it works like this. When your ignition is OFF, after a few seconds, it will arm itself. This happens regardless if your alarm receiver is near or far from the RFID antenna. It disarms only when you turn your key to the ignition ON position.
However, just because it arms itself automatically when you turn your bike to the OFF position, if your alarm receiver is in RFID range, nothing will trigger your alarm. The perimeter sensor will be disabled, as well as the shock/tilt sensors. Basically the bike is armed, but it knows you're near so it wont set off the alarm. In order to truly test the alarm, you need to arm it, then move the alarm receiver out of RFID range. Then the perimeter sensor, tilt/shock sensors will work as expected.
But yea, check your connections first, I know for sure it will not work if you only connected the left/right turn signal plugs.
