You dropped the key? Hopefully not the bike.
The reason you do not want to keep the key near the bike when you are not riding is that you do not want the two of them constantly "talking" to each other.
That will kill the key battery and might also upset the sophisticated electronics of the bike! This bike does not need any prompting to give you headaches.
Yes,yes, I know!! The software is not beta and all that: but don't push your luck!
I have never replaced the original key battery.
