How to remove the transponder from key
on: August 15, 2020, 02:05:18 PM
Hello,

One my keys got damaged so i bought a new blank one. I got the key cut but the dealer don't have time to program the new key until end of next week. So i would like to swap the transponder from the old key to the new one. It seems that the transponder/key is hold in it's housing by a metal pin. Does anyone know how to open the key housing?

Why not keep the old key on the key-chain next to the new key?

I have the 2019 Z900 model purchased In the USA.  I just looked at my key,  I did not notice it having a transponder.  Does it?  And if so what does it do?  I use my spare key to run my bike I had cut at the hardware store and it works fine.

 EU spec bikes come with a factory fitted immobiliser. Not sure about US bikes. Maybe they don't?
 Do you get the red flashing light on the dash after switching the bike off?

Tighten it 'til it strips then back it off half a turn.

Yeah, i'm a little confused by this as well. What transponder? do you have an aftermarket alarm?  :027: :027:

The name that may sound familiar with you is... immobilizer.

It's very rare to have it on the US models but maybe California does. Apparently, motorcycle theft is a big problem in the EU so...

Here is how you can determine if your ECU has this feature (besides the flashing light when parked):
