    Spare key asks for a code, regular key doesn't

    Hi guys, I'm 12 hours into the ownership of my '08 Tuono Factory.
    I didn't like seeing "Remember to set your code" every time I started the bike so I entered one and that went away.
    Then I figure I'd double-check the spare key that has probably never been in the ignition.
    I put the key in and turn it and it ask me to enter the code. I do and it lights up, moves tach needle, shows odo and temp then a few seconds later says "SERVICE".
    Both keys start the bike.

    Any ideas what's up with the spare?

    It does not say SERVICE with the regular key.

    I think it's broken. I'll give you $4k, cash, before it blows up. I'm doing you a favor.

    Thanks for sharing the link jmardy. Were you lucky enough to get the code from the PO, or has it never been set?

    It had never been set.

    Separate the two keys and try again.
    If both keys are next to each other and one of them is not stored in immobilizer memory, it will act as you're described.
