    Keyless Ignition

    I saw on Farcebook, another farkle, someone posted about installing a keyless system for the bike, this can be installed on a range of vehicles and bikes, looks good, and watching the videos, about a couple of hours to install, looks all to be plug and play.

     Keyless Ignition for Triumph.
    A system called "Dawg Tag"...American product, it starts from $259, plus postage, as I said looks good.

    Postage is $64.95, bringing the price to  $323.95

    Don't forget the import duty, VAT and handling charges levied by our customs officers when importing stuff into the UK. I reckon that will put over 100 on to the price.

    They even add import duty and VAT to the carriage charge as well.  Their comment is that if you're prepared to pay that much carriage to get it here, then that has to be considered as adding to the item value as well. You can't win.

    Keyless Igniton  :084:

    Can't say I'm a fan of this - at least not on Cars, due to the inherent Security issues.

    In my opinion, the gain is not matched to the cost.  My only experience with Motorcycle Keyless is problems.

    I have had friends who were denied access to their petrol cap by the BMW keyless ignition.  This was on a week old RT at 19,000 OTRP!  I know in this year's Iron Butt Rally more FJR's finished than started due to replacing BMW's with keyless issues.

    I can see the attraction of one fob click and everything locked up, it works great on my car but in my view, you are just adding opportunities for the bike not to work.  I suspect the Triumph aftermarket kit only works on the ignition so the only benefit if you can call it that, is not scratching around for your key and I've solved that by having two palces for my ignition key, either in the lock or on a carabiner attached to my riding suit.

    Just my $0.02.
    Love, light, and kindness,

    I think I agree with Dave the Sanddancer  :016: and Coconut.  Keyless ignitions feature too frequently in crime programmes for my liking and the cost.....Wow, I was expecting like 50 or so.

    As an aside, it bothers me that I only carry one key on my long travels in case I lose it.  Can anyone suggest a place on the Trophy where a spare key could be carried? I'm thinking in one of those secure boxes, not just taped under the seat  :008:

    I think the spare key would have to be away from the front of the bike because of the transponder conflict with the regular key.

    I'm not a fan of it either, four or two wheels, give me a proper key any day.

    No fob to press, unless you just want to.  It ties into the kill switch circuit and use of the kill switch and near field activates or deactivates it.  There is an optional override switch to allow accessory use with the ignition off and secured, but I see that more as a way to drain the battery than a benefit.  That's why I seldom use my kill switch.  I guess Hog riders would want it so they could all sit around and fire up their stereos to the same tune for "SURROUND" sound! :745:  Lots of FAQ's and information about installation on their website.  I'm just not that bothered by a key, but for the rewiring the switch on a Trophy and eliminating the ignition wiring issue - YES!
