Since there's an Immobilizer Failure thread, I thought I'd post about it working correctly. Some knucklehead thought he could steal my 790 out of the carport under my building using a screwdriver. Needless to say, it wouldn't start without the factory key (and wouldn't have made it far with the disk lock on the rear wheel that I guess he didn't notice). Trying to start the bike now gets a "Key Failure!" warning on the combo display.
The downside, of course, is that the ignition is trashed, so I have to tow it to the dealership and have everything with a lock on it replaced, and the ECU re-coded to the new key. It should come out just to be just under my deductible, so I've got that going for me.

Here's the sight you just don't want to see when you're about to head out for a ride:

So what's everyone doing for security? I'm contemplating a 2nd disk lock with an alarm for the other wheel...
