MTS1200 - Key mysteries...
OK so I think there must be something funky going on here. Initially I thought I was doing things wrong, but it's been semi-scientifically eliminated through thorough testing. Something must be wrong with either my key or the "hands free" unit that's supposed to talk to it.
Here's what's consistently happens:
1) Key is in my pocket or in front compartment.
2) 9 times out of 10, flipping the red switch down (then up) does nothing. I'm pausing, pressing & holding etc - no use.
3) 9 times out of 10, pressing the on/off switch on the tank leads to "enter pin code"
4) The 1 time of 10 when the system does acknowledge the key being there, I will inevitably get the "no key" error message after a a few minutes of riding.
I've replaced battery - twice - in the key - same problem. In fact it's worse now....
Would you agree with me that it's safe to say that it's not "user error" and something must be glitchy? If so - is this something that is covered by warranty? Do I just bring it in to the dealer? I'm worried about leaving it for service unnecessarily as this bike is my only transportation to/from work.
Any info/ideas appreciated. Thanks!
(PS. I love this machine to death!)
