Just looking for a little advice from those more electrical minded than me - which believe me probably means you can plug a kettle in, turn it on and it works................. I just bought an 07 CBR 600 RR for a track bike. It came with one key. Problem with the HISS system as you well know if you lose the key you're up for a new ECU and coded key set. Big $$'s. Yes, i know you can get additional transponder keys and code yourself if you have an original. But i don't want to do that and worry about keys. I just want to install an on/off toggle switch for ignition and use the standard 'start' button. I'll take the key barrel / steering lock unit out and install the toggle in its place using the ignition wiring. Leaving the HISS system. I'll use the transponder from the current original key. I've read of people literally cable tying the key to the HISS unit. Now, here's where i need a little clarity......... Does the transponder need any power / charging? I've read an RFID tag works off passive AC, it's very weak and needs to be located right next to the RFID reader. How long will the transponder work as a standalone like that? I don't want to be in the situation that the transponder gives up the ghost and it's back to square on with a new ECU needed. Any thoughts would be appreciated, cheers.
