Generally, it's not the key that packs up, it's the ring antenna around the key hole.. this one when it goes, it just goes.. you come to start your bike and you see EWS on your LCD display and it doesn't go away. Your trip is over. If you get an intermittent EWS display and then the bike starts, according to my dealer, it's the key that's having a problem.
This isn't to be confused with seeing EWS everytime you turn the key on and the LCD display runs thru several icons, and EWS does flash on to say the key has been challenged for the right code and has passed the test.
