Don't lose your key!

Post by mrossk » Wed Jun 06, 2018 11:15 pm

Just a heads up. I lost one key to my '15 1290. $140 to replace the key, and then @ $75 for the dealer to program it when it arrives. Ouch! And, as is often the case, the dealer knew less about this than I did. At first, he told me that I cannot replace just a key, I had to order a complete ignition. I explained that a) the key is listed in the parts fiche, and b) I read about this whole programming thing online as well as spoke to a guy at KTM World (who are wonderful to work with, btw). He called KTM USA who confirmed what I told him, and said, " Oh yeah, I found the part number..." So frustrating to have to deal with those knuckleheads, and spend $200+ because I'm dumb enough to lose a key. OK, rant over, carry on.
