    Default dam lost keys !!!

    Stood it long as i could , called honda and a new ecm with keys are on the way . Started taking the rune apart last night to see how bad it was going to be. Also have 2 extra keys being set as well . Anyone that only can find one key get a spare made now, losing your last key is around $1100 . Oh well i'm gonna go ride my wing till my stress level drops and my parts get here on friday.

    You know what's going to happen, don't you?

    As soon as you install the new ECM and have all your new keys, the LOST key will magically show up somewhere....

    Well then, at least I wouldn't be the only one on the receiving end of a practical joke from the bike gods.

    save the ECM. Get real quick with the swap out. Go to a rally. Pick out a nice non-CBC Rune. Swap ECM. Get girlfriend to drive the new Rune home.

    I sure would like to cut into that old ECM to see what makes it tick. How much do you want for it?

    I would keep it on the hopes that I might find the lost keys and then I would have a spare set !

    Al, we should each pitch in a little for your research costs. Let me know what my share will be.

    I miss my Rune, but the BMW is practical.

    Talked to service mgr at the shop today ,he says they had ordered new ecm and key set for me but it was out of stock. Which means honda has to place a order to the parts builder and he's not sure of when it will arrive. I was really hoping on friday but this being a controlled part plus out of stock is causing problems . when my baby is up and running we can talk about you guys making a donation to broke idiots fund cause this is really beginning to hurt ! I'll keep you posted on progress and blood loss $$$$.

    No, these new keys have an RF chip in them that communicates with the ECM to exchange encrypted data. The antenna and radio module is looped around the ignition switch. See item 1 in the diagram below:

    Al, are you sure you're not an Alien? i mean, you just have too much knowledge and attention to detail for all this 'geek' stuff

    you know i'm pullin' your leg. Honestly, I NEVER CEASE to be amazed by the knowlege and details MANY folks have here. Al, Wiz, Grizzly, KenC, several others that escape me right now........

    discussions that take me back to debates i had with others in my earlier Engineering career.

    i fully believe if ANYONE, ever has ANY question, about ANYTHING technical on the Rune....someone....or multiple folks HERE...either have the answer, or will get it in short order.......

    Awesome................

    hi guys, got a call from the service mgr at Ron Ayers Mtrsports and after 6 days all my parts are here ! They are waiting for me to drop off the bike . I'm loading it up tonight to drop off tomorrow .They also said the bolts are breakaway and will have to be drilled out . Guess honda decided to add that little twist for good measure .I'll keep you posted on how its going .

    My recommendation for everyone is to put an extra key in the tool pouch under the seat. Then place the flat metal key in your wallet. That way you will always know where a key is and will be able to get to it.

    Just a thought

    I'm not sure of the range, but that may circumvent the HISS system on the bike if a coded key is kept under the seat. Does anyone know what the range (distance) is?

    The transceiver antenna circles the ignition switch. Under the seat may be a bit close.

    So.....Al;
    Say you are George Clooney, and have five runes: Do the spare keys have to be kept in separate rooms so as not to tweak each other ?
