Keep track of your FOBs
« on: May 06, 2013, 11:46:51 pm »
My neighbor found my fob today.  Purely a stroke of luck.  For no justifiable reason I had laid in on the luggage rack of my KLR and forgot about it.  Later that week I blew out of the garage on some mission for the wife.  My fob remained behind... in the street... alone and vulnerable... and was run over.

The good news is it still works.  The bad news is it looks like it's gone through a grinder.

Later that day (after looking at the Ron Ayers fiche) I discovered that fobs are not just something you should leave laying around... they're almost $200 (programming not included).  Shame on me. 

Does anyone have a defunct fob (perhaps one that's gone through the washer) that they would be willing to part with?  I'd gladly pay you a fair price for it.

My wife washed one of my fobs. Others who have washed thier Fobs have reported they still work, so finding a non working washed Fob could be a problem.
