Keyless start/fob

Has anyone figured out what the 2 buttons on the key fob do ? I pushed one and the signals flashed, is this soemthing to do with the electric immobilizer ?

If it's the same as the K1600 fob then it locks the bags and arms the alarm.

The alarm, if you have one installed, is not the immobilizer. The immobilizer is that part of every GS that won't allow the bike to start unless an authorized key is nearby. I don't know what changes to the system have been made for keyless operation.

The only real change is the key is replaced by a button. The button is not active unless the fob is close by. The other change is the gas cap. Otherwise it works like any other bike.

I like it, and wish I had it. I am always leaving my key in my pocket before putting on my gear!

Lord, I can't tell you HOW many hundred times I have done that and I still never learn........except it's always my truck key , since I leave the bike keys in the bike 99% of the time when it's in the trailer.

All

I figured it out. Really not that mysterious !

You can arm the alarm manually with the key fob.

1. Press the BMW roundelle and the turn signals flash twice to indicate system is armed;
2. Press the arrow button below it and the turn signals flash once to disarm the system.

You can also go into the setup menu and select auto arming which will kick in 30 seconds after bike is turned off.

Let me know if you have noticed anything differently.
