I bought a bike with one smart FOB. Is the cost to get a 2nd unit worth it? I did reset the PIN and can run the bike without it.

That would be up to you whether or not it is worth it cost wise. I would be able to get along with only one if needed.

I have two Fobs, but since I'm the only one that rides it I only use one. If I lost the Fob, I can always override the Fob.

I've never used the second fob. If my primary fob happens to die before I replace the battery, I just use the code until I get a new one.

If you know how to do the override, I don't see the point.

One of my buddies gave the second FOB to his wife, and she keeps in on her key ring. Whenever they go out, she will often have him lock her purse in the tour-pak. It only took them a year to realize that by doing that, because her keys were in her purse, the alarm was never arming!!

Although, I wll say that personally, I would buy the second one if only because it came with two. But, you can snatch them up used on ebay for a reasonable price.

One note, when you program the FOB, you have to program both at the same time.

A riding buddy had his FOB battery die on a trip one day, and a glitch in the TSSM prevented him from using the override code. Luckily for us there was a Radio Shack less than a mile away. We were rolling again after the battery replacement, and the TSSM was later replaced.

My spare fob is hidden on my bike with the battery removed and taped up. Just in case. :thumbup:

I have two with the bike but only use one. I have a spare battery in the tour-pak just in case the FOB battery dies. I do use the code once and a while to remember it and how to enter it. The spare battery is ready when I need it.

I have the older button fob, and I only received one.

Although mine was added post purchase.


Never had the need for a second fob.
