    My owners manual says to replace the battery in the fob every year, I have 2 fobs but only use 1. Is it neccessary to keep a battery in the unused fob or will the memory remain without it?

    Shouldn't be a problem if its not used. It will retain the memory as long as you use the other one.

    thanks Glider, I'll just load a battery in it if I need it.

    I had never considered that. My spare fob has been in a drawer with no battery for over a year. I just put the battery in it and went to the garage. The bike started right up, then I put the fob on a shelf 12' away, no response from the starter:).
