    buy a two pack

    Iíve found the battery starts to go flat at the most inopportune moments, so I tape a spare battery to the manual. On the page that explains how to change them out.

    It also helps to know how to start the bike with a dead fob battery and also how to start the bike with the plastic emergency key.

    I felt really superior with my non-keyless RS until I lost my key last November and went thru various schemes for carrying/hiding a second key. Really would like to have one of those headless "emergency" keys we used to get with a BMW. Nice and small, easy to hide.
