As in...all fobs lost = new ecu.  Get the cc fob and put it in your wallet, or let it ride in the tank glove box.

New ECU + labor = WAY more than the $40 cost for a new passive fob.

Do you have just one fob? Just one? If so, and you lose that one you are going to be screwed! Buy one of the smaller passive only fobs for less than $40 online and get your bike programmed to recognize it right away. Perhaps you don't understand but if you lose the one working fob it is going to cost you well over $700 to get your bike working and there is no getting around it.

I have TWO dead fobs!  I bought the bike used, and was given two FOBs.  The previous owner told me that there was a primary and a secondary.  I only used the primary.  Well now that it is dead, I discovered the secondary is/has been dead.  SO now I have two passive FOBs.  Is the newer credit card FOB close enough to the ignition in the glove box to make it work?  I ABSOLUTELY hate getting on the bike and then remembering that I have to dig out my fob, hold it up to the ignition, and start the bke.  Then put it back away.  I guess I'll get used to it!

Maybe order a dozen batteries? Sounds like I'm kidding - but, maybe?

How long do new batteries usually last you?

I might stitch my passive fob and a spare battery into my jacket sleeve/cuff for extra measure. This fob system has been great so far but these threads are a touch of reality. I am glad my keychain isn't dangling from the ignition while riding - but Kipass sure is a handful of tech to solve a problem that hardly existed.

Connies should have come with 2 active fobs. I think my '09 did? My '10 didn't.

Sure wish the credit card fob was 'active'. Fancy cars have credit card fobs instead of bulky clunks of plastic. But as they say 'wish in one hand and $h1t in the other and see which one fills up first'.

Have the fobs been taken apart and cleaned?

I'm not understanding the 'dead' part.  So they don't work even with new batteries?  If that's the case, I've never heard of them going 'dead'...  Unless they've both gone through the wash and have not been able to be revived..  How can two fobs go 'dead'?

Or, how about "He's dead, Jim." That fob must have been a redshirt in spirit....

I know this is an old thread...but im dumb and lost my main FOB. so I have called my dealer and they ordered me a new one, I didn't even ask how much. My concern is my ecu has a ghul reflash, will the dealer alter that when they program the for the replacement FOB?

Good question but I don't think so.  They are only registering the FOB, not doing anything else that I'm aware of.  Also there are two ECUs, one does the engine bit and the other does the KIPASS stuff.  I think they only mess with the one for KIPASS which would not have been the ECU that was re-flashed.

Guess I will find out. I didn't notice the message until about a half mile form the office, I assume it must have fallen out of my butt then and immediately displayed "no transponder", im going to take another look, it kills me that I was that stupid this morning.

What makes me nervous is when I called my dealer they told me they needed to check and would get back to me. Certainly I cant be the only one in RI to ever loose this.
