Hello Team:

New to me 2010 1198 (4400 miles) miles. The bike came with the electronic card and two keys. Following the procedure in the Service Manual to reprogram the immobilizer, the Electronic Code printed in the Code Card is not being recognized by the bike. Will this be the case if the previous owner(s) change the ECU? Also, every time I turn the ignition "ON" the bike goes through the 3 second process to re-program the keys. "Key off". Does this mean that the immobilizer is "off" until the keys are programmed? The keys look new for a 9 years old bike. The bike has a Termi slip-on but not sure if is the whole exhaust, if the ECU was replaced what happens to the mileage? How can I fix the Electronic Code issue?

Thank you very much.

Did you try the Immobilizer override procedure, to see if the code is correct on the card and not the procedure you are using to reprogram?

if the ECU was replaced what happens to the mileage
The mileage is stored in your dash and not in your ecu.

How can I fix the Electronic Code issue?
If the code is indeed incorrect, you can send it to a specialist, the can "extract" the correct code from your dash.

I have an interesting problem.

Before Xmas, I was persuaded to go for a ride in colder conditions than I have ridden my 999 before.
It was reluctant to start but did eventually and I assumed that all would be fine once it warmed up.
However, as I approached my friends house, the motor just died and the bike had to be recovered to my house.
It hasn't run since.

The key/code symbol is blinking, the obd light is off. I can't use the card code because I can't initiate the sequence. According to the book, the symbol only blinks when an attempt has been made to use the code but has failed, switching off and back on is supposed to clear it.
However, nothing seems to clear it.

I have tried a substitute dash, substitute antenna, substitute keys, new relay and even a substitute ECU with the immobiliser function switched off.
Nothing works.
The engine turns over but doesn't fire, I can smell fuel but have no spark. I have put a new spark plug in. I have had the battery checked.

HELP!!!

UPDATE.

Dash is back to normal, the problem was that the keys were not initialized/programmed. The bike was starting normally but always going through the "01 KEY" sequence. After the programming of the keys was completed, the dash is back to normal and all the lights illuminate. I also have now one of the tach red LED's flashing every few seconds. I guess that's to indicate the immobiliser is active?

Thank you very much.

Thanks for responding with the solution/resolution.
That is important for the next person that is seeking a solution.

Unfortunately some do not provide feedback as to whether something did or did not work, where both are equally important.
I.e. try this it works or don't try this as it does not work!

Thanks again for being a good forum member.
