    OLD KEY VS NEW KEY

     :Hi i am back had my question about the used motorcycle that i bought , and was not sure if it had to come with 2 keys. All said yes it must have 2 keys and later got second one from previous owner . Unlocked everything switched bike on but said EWS! did not want to start . So took it in to local BMW dealer and the guy said no the computer does not see or read that key . But why does it work on all the locks ? And cant one program it to work . Long story i then was told to order a new one , cost a arm and leg and still waiting on it . But i was told if the new key comes it does not need to be coded it will just fit and start , is this true ? Or do i need to take bike in and coding must be done again on new key . I think they are not telling me everything or don't know how it must be done.   THANKS IN ADVANCE .

    They are telling the truth as I Understand it. the new key will come 'keyed' and 'coded' for your VIN from the Motherland.

    on another note, these bikes run hot, how is the XR handling those dry HOT Windhoek summers?

    My brother moved back from UK a year ago after 22 years that side , and always brought me everything i needed from that side but now i have to struggle to get what i need for the XR . Hope the key will work , wait and see .
