Ironically they had misplaced the fob when I went to pick up my weekend (turned into 4 days) test ride. So I used the PIN. Subsequently I now know what all the bikes in the dealer's PIN is. LOL.
I use my PIN a lot. In fact part of me prefers it. I keep my fob hidden away in the house where it'll never be found if someone breaks in when I'm not home. I don't mind using the PIN at all. Only problem is when I go for a quick after work ride and forget I have also locked the forks! lol
The best way to know if your PIN is accepted is if your bike is in N when you enter it, acceptance of it will illuminate the N light.
Something I found out my bike has without knowing about it, I even asked at the dealer as I like that the HD SGS has it, is an alarm. I pressed the fob lock button twice and it beeped at me. At first I just thought it was one of those confirmation beeps telling you "yes, stop already, I'm locked" but then I got on without the fob and stood the bike up and all hell broke loose. Great Dane was howling and barking, wife was yelling and I was like, "shit, what's the PIN". Hahahaha!
so two things I asked before I bought where did the Chieftain have an alarm and self-cancelling indicators. Told no to both and it actually does have both!
Wow! I was given my master PIN without question...
They flashed my bike at the 800km service (as I expected them to do) but didn't set any new PINs. So I went in the next day (not on the bike - dealer is 200m from my work) and spoke with one of the sales guys as the service guy wasn't there. A couple of clicks on a keyboard, a post-it note and a pen, and I had my master pin. Now I've reset my own PIN and the master PIN in the safe at home.
Nice idea on selling the bike and the taking it back! LOL!!! I do understand the security point, and it is somewhat valid. When I did a test ride, they had misplaced the fob so gave me the PIN. Turns out it's the PIN the shop uses on every bike. I could have a nice collection of Indians if I wanted to. LOL!!! (jokes) But they should be more worried about someone hacking their computer system, getting all the names and addresses and master PINs of the bikes. I mean, my bigger concern here is that our master PINs are on their systems along with all our other details!
