With keys for all of the CARC bikes that use the engraved 'Blade' type keys I have been unable to find an aftermarket key with a T5 chip that allows itself to be be programmed by the dashboard.
While this is annoying as long as you had two working *Factory* keys you were golden and could simply get one of the Silka 'Clone' keys programmed by a locksmith and this would allow you to ride the bike and, as long as you know the User Code, start the bike in extremis. It does mean though that you were dependent on a locksmith to clone the key.
Anyway, with the small tank Stelvio I bought came no 'Factory' keys but two aftermarket keys from a manufacturer I'd not heard of before. They both worked to start the bike but I assumed that they were both clones and as such I wouldn't be able to change the user code as the dashboard recognises clones as the *Same* key, not two separate ones. Not knowing the bikes User Code I was expecting no joy with recovering the code so imagine my surprise when I tried the 'Code Recovery' function and it worked! I was able to clear the code and re-set it to the default of five zeroes so the dash now reminds me on start up to not forget to insert a code!
So obviously these keys have a non clone chip so they can be paired to the dash on bike! Brilliant! Yes, you'll still need one working factory key and a known User Code to enable them to be paired to the dash but it's a better option than simply cloning.
The only problem is I haven't been able to find a vendor of these blanks! My usual locksmith was spectacularly unhelpful!
Anyway, pictures below.[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
The identifier is ZA-14P I believe and they have a T5 chip.
