Keyfob Replacements

Anyone know what the process is? May have already misplaced the spare. 'Doh!

Will have to do a proper search for it this evening after work....

Thanks.

Shut up and ride.

Go to Dealer... Open wallet... Reach in deeply... remove left testicle... pull it back out thru wallet... Wait patiently for dealer to try to find where to order it and how to match it to your bike.

DONT LOSE THE SECOND ONE.. YOU WILL NEED COMPLETE ECM REPLACEMENT. A COUPLE THOUSAND DOLLARS.

GO FIND THAT PUPPY.

Hey Jerry, didnt you mean to reach through your wallet into wife's purse....retrieve testicle, etc?

There are certain benefits to being homely, I just haven't received them yet...

keyfob replace info

I found my spare buy found out from Kawi dealer what it takes to replace...

They ARE NOT unique and do not have to be programmed. They will just simply send you a new one. Replacement cost was quoted at $202 US.

Cheers.

Shut up and ride.

This too is what I read in the owner's manual.

Did the dealer tell you this? If correct, I could just keep my transponder in my pocket and have all the spare C14 parts I could ever need, including a spare bike or two. For this very reason I am suspicious.

The Kawasaki Intelligent Proximity Activation Start System (KIPASS) can have up to 6 fob keys registered to the KIPASS system, done by an authorized Kawasaki dealer of course. If all fob keys are lost, registering new codes for replacement fob key into electronic control unit is impossible and will require replacing the ECU. Since each key has its own code, it won't work on any other bike, therefore, no extra parts or bikes, etc.

The dealer told me to replace my spare, he just had to place the order for me and they would send the new keyfob. I did not place an order. Seems like if they require a VIN number then they will send my a keyfob specific for my bike, of which there are 6? That I am not sure about.

Shut up and ride.

As long as (1) of the two original FOBs is registered as present by the Smart ECU, an additional (5) unregistered FOB transponders can be registered with the Smart ECU as valid SPARES for your bike. Once an unregistered FOB has been registered by someones bikes Smart ECU it will only be good for that specific bike. As you aproach the bike with the valid newly registered FOB, the ECU recognizes it and it then becomes the MASTER allowing you full access to the motorcycle. In fact each time you start the bike with a different FOB it registers that valid SPARE (secondary) as the MASTER (primary).

Boy I"m glad I cleared that up!..

This is all from Kawasaki 2007 Service Update pages 184-204.

See you on the road,

Jerry
