So I bought a nice SMT, runs perfect, has 1 key.

I find out it has a chip in it, which surprised me for a 10 year old bike.

I call 3 dealers to get a spare key, thinking I prove my ownership, they order a
new programmable key. then the dealer programs it to the bike.
Like my BMW GS, BMW even pre programmed it.
Like my Ducati Multi, The dealer fee and new fob were $200 total.

They all say key and immobilizer is $550+, seems this is more complicated than I thought.
I need some advice here, I can't be the only person who needs a spare key ??

Thanks LP

I can't really help because I'm lucky enough to still have all 3 keys. If the one you have is the orange key there is a procedure in the handbook for programming extra keys so you only need to obtain blanks then you can programme them yourself. If it is one of the black keys then I think you are stuffed and will have to get the new immobilizer as well. You might be lucky enough to find the whole kit at a breakers but you MUST have that orange key or you are no better off.
Hope someone else comes along with better news.

not just the orange (master) key, but also the keycard holding a specific code.
the master key lets you program new blanks, as seagoon said.
the keycard I believe is something to do with the immobiliser unit and master key, or it allows a new key to be programmed without the master key.

not entirely sure about the keycard, will have to look that up in the full manual or in the users manual.

---edited for spelling (thank you auto correct!)---
