I just wonder if the FOB is receiving any information from the bike in the assigning process, or just sending. Really what I wonder is, is it possible to assign the same FOB to a second bike, without loosing it on the first? The reason I ask is I bought a brand new FOB for my 2001 Fatboy. I can't assign it to the bike. The stealership who sold it claim it can only be done by them using computer. But the service manual states you can do it without, using ign on-off-on-off-on, 2 x left, 1 x right, 1 x left, press and hold FOB 1, press and hold FOB 2. The problem is FOB 2 (the new one) will not do anything to the bike. I assume it's either broken or incompatible (the ID on the circuit board is newer, 363H514 P09, than the one on the old board, 363F511 P09). As there is really no way to tell if it is transmitting or not, I was thinking of borrowing a friends FOB and try to assign that as second. If it works, I know it's possible to assign a second one using the sequenze above, and hence the one I bought is broken/incompatible. But, I don't want to render my friends FOB useless on his bike.
