Yes, I received the order and the circuit will go out tomorrow morning.

The reason I asked what year is that I have a question about the 2015 model specifically. It has nothing to do with the KiPass activation switch bypass, but anyone installing a bypass will have the answer to my question, at least after he / she installs it.

...

Go out and look at your bike, in the safety of your garage. Decide which towing company you'd call, and how exactly you could strap it to a tow vehicle without damage.

...

This comment just made me realize it's probably wise to stow two ratchet straps on your bike, ones you'd trust to secure your bike on a tow truck.

More cheap insurance.

Finally had a chance to install. Very trick little deal. For anyone wondering, a blind monkey could install this in about 10 minutes.  If you didn't know better you would think this was an OE part. Nicely done Brian  :chugbeer:

Thanks very much for the kind words.

I did try to make it as 'slick and easy' as possible, and it is a point of pride that I do my utmost to use the best parts, materials and assembly techniques that I possibly can. My hope is that my little farkles are still waterproof and working as new long after the vehicle itself has been scrapped.

If you like the install of this circuit, you should see the low fuel warning eliminator; not a single tool or even a mild curse- word required.  ;D

Thanks again for the compliment about the product!

It's the switch hanging up.  Has nothing to do with the fob.  You need to join the switch hater club.  If you want to discuss the switch issue, start  a new thread, please.  BTW, this did happen to me twice early on.  I have his bypass and have never had to use it.

Ok first of I just purchased a 2010 Concours on my Birthday Tuesday down in Lewisville Tx. Took it for a test drive and I love this bike, loaded it up on the trailer and headed home. Somehow, somewhere I was able to lose the only key fob that came with the bike between the Dealer and my Driveway. Took the bike to my local dealer to order another (new keyfob, with blank spare key, and the emergency fob and blank spare key for it) so now just short of $570, they had the parts overnighter and today they will program the new key fobs and I'll have the keys cut by the locksmith that was able to pick the lock on the pan to get to the owners manual (that luckily had the key number wrote in it). So I've heard that there is a bypass switch and I would like to order one can someone lead me in that direction please. Having a keyfob is great and all, but I don't want to ever be left stuck again if keyfob is lost or missing.

I hate to break the news but without at least 1 fob or passive fob you cannot program new fobs. You will have to replace the whole Kipass system which is big $. If the dealer figures out a way to program the fobs without replacing the whole system please let us know how they did it.

As far as anyone here knows, you HAVE to be able to turn on the bike's ignition in order to program any new fobs into the system and a working fob is required. If you don't have any means of turning on the ignition then you are screwed to the tune of around $1k or more.

As for the bypass switch, you still have to have a working fob (small or large) and there's no way around that.

If you have lost the last (or only) fob that came with that C-14 then the entire KiPass ECU will have to be replaced and the bike programmed to recognize / use the new KiPass system. This will be fairly expensive, something over $700 (at a high discount) for the ECU, which will come with two new fobs, and the labor to install the unit and program the bike at the dealer.

You need to have one valid, working fob to program the bike to recognize additional fobs. A C-14 without any valid, recognized fobs is quite expensive to 'fix'.

There are no work- arounds for KiPass available anywhere; my bypass is a KiPass activation switch bypass, not a KiPass bypass.

Best of luck and sorry to have to pass along this bad news.
