    I've got a 1998 883 with the security feature. It activates all the time for no apparent reason and I have to punch in the code but that takes forever to get "zero'd" out and the bike just won't accept the code sometimes. I sit there forever until I can get the bike to accept the code and start. I took it into a HD service awhile back and he said he couldn't deactivate it...Any ideas? It's really cutting into my enjoyment!

    Make that a 2008 883 not 1998...The fob does not disarm the system consistently...causing me to punch in the code...

    The FOB coin battery is FRESH and you have the SAME problem with your back-up FOB that also has a FRESH coin battery in it?

    Well, that's a thought...I have not replaced the coin battery in the fob on my key chain but tried it today with the back - up fob and neither disarmed the system...but I got both at the same time...but never used the back up...ya think both coin battery's are dead?
