Anyone in Atlanta Area have KDS?
« on: June 20, 2018, 01:40:34 pm »
I'm looking for someone in the Atlanta area who has KDS on their computer and the connecting cable. I need to register a fob and my dealership is absolutely useless (I've already been there twice and my active fob still doesn't work when you take the battery out).

Did you take the key out and fit the fob up to the notch on the neck on the triple tree?  There is a notch on the triple tree just forward of and below the stove key. It's easy to reach. Take the key out of the fob. You mate the space the where key was at to the notch. The fob will fit the notch. The Kipass should immediately unlock with a key cymbal on the dash. If that doesn't work I don't know what is wrong. Good luck. Tim

As stated below, I thought I had a problem until I put the FOB up to the notch

I know how it's supposed to work. I just let a bad dealership try to program a spare fob and they didn't program the original fob. Went back to the dealership, same story.

When I touch the fob with no battery in it onto the notch on the triple tree, I get a SUBKEY ID ERROR. I just need someone with KDS so I can do the programming myself properly. Done with dealerships. 

So I know I'm doing it right because I'm getting the error.

 the first time or two fobs / immobilizers are keyed to a bike, it's pretty nerve racking, because if you screw something up the fallout is very expensive. Once you've done it some, it becomes mentally easier, and the fact is kawasaki separates the fob and immobilizer functions, so as long as you only change one function, make the procedure safe. the trick is to only key immobilizers or fobs but not both during one "round" and then confirm the results before going to the next function, you'll be OK.

  IMO, if you own a c-14 and don't have at least 1 backup immobilizer, you're really playing with fire. As long as you can turn the ignition on you can always key in more. Lose your one fob with no backup, and it's game over.

  OH and BTW... do this TODAY - take your fob, remove the battery, and check that the immobilizer functions. If you have separate immobilizers, check each to see if they actually function. when I bought my '12 used, it came with a fob and a credit card immobilizer. I figured I was fine. until I tested the credit card immobilizer, and found it had never been keyed to my bike.  :-[  That could have been very bad for me.

My bike came with only the fob when I bought it two weeks ago so I bought a "credit card" and am trying to make sure it all runs right now. Just done dealing with the dealership here in Atlanta and would like to do it myself rather than explain the situation to someone who is then going to explain it to the mechanic who clearly hasn't used the system before.

Thanks for the explanation Steve. Everyone with a used bike should make sure their keys work and try to fix them if not.

Does it work with the battery installed?
It works with the battery installed because the remote fob works fine.

Orkum,

Give Tony Gaiford a call. He's in the East Marietta, GA area. I've used him since 2005. He may be able to help you, at least answer some questions. He's done great work on my C10s and my C14. And on others' bikes.

He has a big house and works out of the lower level. He knows the Concours.

His phn  678 772 6935.  3045 Patten Dr. 30062

Good Luck

Anybody know if this type of work (programming or REprogramming keys or immobilizers) is covered under Warranty??

If a key found to NOT be programmed (like SiSF's) I would think that warranty or the original dealership would HAVE to do this for free??

Of course, extenuating circumstances would apply.....just saying - an astute dealer could submit this claim.
