A Motorcycle with a keyless ignition does not require a key for operation. Instead, an assigned security fob must be present or the PIN must be used before the motorcycle can be started.
The key supplied with the motorcycle is for the fork lock. See Controls and Indicators → Fork Lock.
Ignition Mode
With security fob present, set the OFF/RUN switch to RUN. The lights and instruments become operational and the motor can be started. To disarm the security system using the PIN, see SECURITY SYSTEM → Arming and Disarming.
The motorcycle remains on (or the engine continues running) until the OFF/RUN switch is set to OFF. Taking the security fob out of range will not shut down the engine or turn off the motorcycle after it is turned on. However, the speedometer will display a NO FOB message if the motorcycle begins moving without the fob present.
With the OFF/RUN switch in RUN, the system will turn off after 15 minutes of inactivity.
When parked, set the OFF/RUN switch to OFF and take the security fob from the motorcycle to prevent theft or startup. With the motorcycle turned off and the security fob out of range, the starter, ignition system and OFF/RUN switch remain disabled, immobilizing the motorcycle.
Accessory Mode
See Controls and Indicators → Left Hand Control Switches → Left Hand Switch Module. With the security fob present, press and hold the TRIP switch (1). The instruments and accessory circuit are powered. The headlamp and turn signal lamps remain off. While in accessory mode:
To turn off accessory mode, press and hold the TRIP switch.
Do not leave the motorcycle in accessory mode for an extended period. This can discharge the battery. If the vehicle is left in accessory mode for two hours, the vehicle will automatically shut off to prevent complete battery discharge. To resume accessory mode, press and hold the TRIP switch.
