    2 key fobs with a 2015.......
    « on: 2015-03-13 20:05:32 »
    I've been following a thread on the US forum and a lot of guys are having a second radio fob supplied as it is stated on P48 of the handbook that there should be 2 radio and one emergency keys with the bike.


    Just fired off a warranty claim email to my dealer; anyone had any luck with this?

        I have an 'old' GT with two fobs and a plastic emergency key. Until now I have only used 1 fob and never even looked at or touched the other ones.

          According to several feedbacks from buyers, only the Exclusive gets two, the other models (with keyless go) get only one. A second one can be ordered separately. Not sure if this applies for the US only, or worldwide. Anybody with a 2015 GT or GTL and keyless go who got 2 fobs?
          It doesn't have to make sense. It's ok if it's just fun :-)

            I received two fobs when I bought my K1600GT, though one doesn't work right and I am trying to get it replaced as it stopped working whilst under warranty.

              Back in 2005 when I bought my first R1200GS it was supplied with one key and the plastic emergency key, but the handbook said it should have had two keys. So I was supplied a second key free of charge. If the handbook says it should have two fobs then you should be able to make a good case to get it supplied with no cost.

                   This goes back to 2005 when they started using immobilisers. For at least 2 years dealers had to request a seconds key under warranty for every new bike.

                          My 2013 gtl had 2 fobs but my 2015 only has 1, and my dealer won't give me a 2nd one regardless of what owners manual says

                          Enjoy life and be nice

                            This confirms what I heard from other owners: 2 fobs up and until 2014 model, since then only 1 fob (except for the Exclusive that still comes with 2, even in 2015)

                              My dealer has said the listing of 2 fob's in the manual was a mistake and as he had pointed it out, they didn't need to supply a second fob.


                              But he also said he'd ask and see if he can get a second one as a goodwill gesture.......
