    I`ve checked both batteries in the fobs and all seems well. 
    What do you mean by this? How old are the batteries?

    Wave the fob over the dash and wait for beep beep. Found this out by accident.

    Hi Bullant, FWIW one thing that was interfering with my fob was when I put my gym access key on the same key ring. Make sure you don’t have anything that would interfere with an electrical signal near the fob. Sometimes it can be intermittent like the fob being interfered with by a mobile, etc.

    Just see how it goes, it might just be a one off. I’ve only ever ridden with my fob in either my jacket pocket or the pocket of my tracks/jeans so always in close proximity. Although on the handlebars I would imagine the range is still good (apparently six feet).

    Also, this may be a long shot but the fob may have been getting some interference from card magnetic strips in your wallet like you mentioned above.

    Had this happen a couple of times to me.
    Then a few weeks later the fob battery died.
    For a couple of dollars I'd just replace it.
    At very least look up how to enter pin to start bike so you dont get stuck.

    Just reminded me, too, thanks.
    8 years down the track and still haven't done the pin thing. 
    Today.

    I have the pages of the manual showing how to do the pin unlock in my phone, just in case I ever need to do it.
    I had to bend out the fob fingers to get a good contact on the battery on one of my fobs.

    Ken, thats a bloody good idea. I'm fucken ancient and er well travelled, consequently have trouble remembering my name with little chance of pin recoup data. 
    One of my fobs, exactly same issue, cheap components or are we heavy handed?
    Just as a comparison my 103 with 204's has (or had) 90.16 Power 107.8 Torque. Not confident to play with Screaming Eagle Tuner to reflash.

    Agree - I sent myself an email with instructions on how to "Start with no Fob" and "Retrieve Pin Code". Never had to use them from myself but have "rescued" a friend once.

    Glad the idea has merit.
    Change the pin to something you remember, I used a date that I will never forget, easy as.

    Fob battery can become depleted faster if the fob is left within range of the bike when not riding (believe it or not, some blokes leave their fob in the garage). This is because the bike is continually sending a signal asking if the fob is within range, so if fob is close it then receives this & transmits/replies "I'm here". This then is a continual transmission day & night from the fob, battery suffers.

    Agree (from personal experience).

    To get around this I have installed a small safe in the garage. I know that it must shield the fobs as every time I bump one of the bikes the frigging alarm chirps at me
