My FOB dropped out of my waist bag while on a trip a few days . Realised after a few kilometers when the "NO TRANSPONDER" indication came on. I turned back and luckily found FOB but in parts. Looked a vehicle ran on the electronic board. Had to complete the journey with the fault indication ON. I put the parts back together but bike remains dead. Apparently, I'll need a new FOB.
Issue - Bike is in Nigeria and absolutely no dealers around. I'm welcome to all suggestions please

Did you try the passive RFID coil that is in the end of the fob?

Hold this touching the black tab that juts out from the key housing at the 12 o'clock position and try to see if the system energizes.

You will have to touch the front edge of the FOB to the passive antenna.

The best of luck,

He is double posting. The answer has already been posted  on the other COG forum  way  before he  started posted here and he hasn't answered over  there yet.
I sent him a PM to go read his older first  posting  over on the other site.
