The idiots that stole it thought it would be a brilliant idea to cut the main wiring harness, all 52 wires, to defeat the alarm. It also fried the ECU and a bunch of relays, and the key won't work in the ignition as they tried to hammer a flat head screwdriver into it. It is not a fun project.

Damn man what are you psychic.
I'd do a Martinho ecu switch, getting rid of the immobilizer
and ride that sucker down.

We're spending one more Winter in Tucson and riding in Mexico,
then we want to spend several Winters living and riding in Chile
and thereabouts.

This bike would work out for that or I'll trade my Multi for a newer
990 and ride my '08 down.

Twist it, Max

Bunch of jackasses, good on you for helping out.
As above I'd do the ecu switch and I have a spare set of
gas caps with key around.
I'd bypass the seat lock and put a simple cable pull like my 690.

So tell me about this whole immobilizer thing

I called KTM and they said a new immobilizer key costs around $400. What exactly does it do? From what I can find online it seems like all it does is keep people from riding...

Thnx,
Joel

Exactly. If the antenna fails you're pretty fucked up.
Better idea is to spend that money on a new 07-08 ECU, load the R maps and just ride.

You're saying an 07/08 ECU onto a +09 model?

Look for Martynho posts reagrding that subject. It's a long story, he started with a bad antenna, TPS,... and ended up replacing his 2011 ECU with a 07-08

Last weekend we downloaded the '11 R maps in his ECU and everything's fine, he rides a real R again

I have some more research to do as far as what it takes to fully recover a salvage bike. Thanks for any help!
I am pretty sure I know who's bike this is. He was going to buy it back from the insurance company...
