New Bike, No Keys
« on: July 23, 2019, 02:23:45 am »
Just picked up a 2013 C14 with 15k miles from an insurance salvage auction for $600. It is going to need a lot of love to get it back on the road, but I am looking forward to the challenge. My question is the bike came with no key. Am I going to have to redo the ignition and key module? or is there a way to get a replacement key?

or is there a way to get a replacement key?    No way Jose  Matt.



Am I going to have to redo the ignition and key module?    Yes and KIPASS ECU


Is there any way you can contact the PO via the auction house & insurance company to check if s/he has the active or passive fob?

I think i may try a title search on it tomorrow to see if i can track down the previous owner. Sounds like that might be worth a shot

You should be able to have new keys made by sending a copy of your title and or your registration to them.  I had new stove (ignition) and fob keys made by them, they worked perfectly too.    Try contacting them directly on the phone to confirm what documentation they require, you might be able to place the order over the phone.

reply #52 has a picture of the fobs you will need to activate the kipass ignition system. without at least one your ignition is a brick.

This is your best option at this point. You NEED the keys AND at least one FOB. Keys will do you no good without a functioning FOB that's been linked to this bike. If you can't locate the FOB you are looking at spending somewhere around $1k for the needed parts.
