Your bike is pissed off that you haven't ridden her for a month and is letting you know about it.

hey just answered your pm.
also check that your battery is fully charged.sitting for a month with the alarm on is a long time with out a recharge make sure its fully charged.

It's definitely a low battery. Bike needs enough juice left in the battery to emit a strong enough signal to the fob, else it doesn't recognise it.

This happened to me because my, then, unknown electrical fault caused excessive drain meaning my battery was too flat after 3 days without use.

My advice is to hook it up to the battery tender/charger evry time you put it away!

They can go into a sort of sleep mode, can't remember how long before it does it. Usually once you turn on the ignition and the alarm starts you can then disarm it and all is OK

Try reactivating your alarm and then double click to unactivate,once the ignition switch has been activated in the active mode you must unactivate with the switch off then reactivate after you have cycled your switch on off,on off, on off this will clear the tssm brain.
Then press and hold the key fob till lights flash and you should be secure again, then double click the fob to unsecure. Btry should be at 12.9-13.0 volts use a battery tender during non riding days.

Same Problem-alarm won't deactivate

My bike,2003 RK has been on the battery tender-always.
I thought it was the battery in the fob,installed new battery in fob-same.
FInally got it to deactivate and rode it 60 miles-same thing when i got home. It starts right up and turns over fine.
Checked the battery voltage, was 12.8v and 14.4v w/ motor running
Where does it pick up the signal from the fob? I guess it's not dirty or blocked as it sets the alarm fine.
Any other ideas>?
