    Programming Key Fob, keyless ride
    « on: 2017-08-11 18:32:06 »
    Hi
    Here is what I had to do when programming the Key fob.
    1. Remove the windscreen.
    2. Remove the Cover for windsreen adjuster, and locate the Ring antenna.
    3. Put the Key fob in the middle of the Ring antenna and push the ignition button. When the igition come on, the Key fob is programmed.

      Under what circumstance does this become necessary ?

          Something not right here.  Firstly there are no batteries involved with a chipped key.  Secondly what  type of security is it when all you have to do is undo a couple of bits to overcome it.

            And why do these things appear in a first post ??.....  I look forward to austavia's next post.

              Does ring (3) come with bike or dealer plug in? Hope so or brilliant theft device? Actually not what needs to be discussed on here is it. Chain and padlock I guess folks.

                I purchased a 2015 R1200RT, and the key fob had a broken key. Therefor I got a new keyfob, and that wasn't programmed for my bike.

                  To get a new Keyfob from BMW, you have to have certificate of title and id to prove that you are the owner of the motorbike.

                    somewhere on youtube there is an easy way to program a second keyfob that does not require removal of the windscreen.


                    I bought a second one (yes you have to provide your reg and license to the dealer) and it was a simple set of steps to program it.  I did it so long ago I forget the procedure and I didn't bookmark the link.

                      My replacement emergency key came pre-programmed.
                      I would expect a replacement key fob to come pre-programmed too.  If it's not pre-programmed, the need for proof of ID / ownership seems a little pointless since I would be able to order a key for "my" bike then pair it with any keyless RT.  Just doesn't make sense to me.
