Not had to do it yet although the time is looming.  I am sure it has been discussed before on here if you fancy a search.  It is my Birfday (thanks for my 'card' BM  :028: ) and I'm off to spend the rest of the night with my beloved.

Easy to do mate.

Take the key and get a Stanley knife and lift off the Honda label , once the label is off you will see the chip in the key. this is only held in with a small amount of glue, pop it out and place in the new key. I hold my chips in with a bit of silicone  and then put the new cover over. never had a  problem doing it that way.

If theres a gap i can get through it !!!

Some people pay for an IAM... I am mad.....

That's the old style key. Mk 2 bikes have a different looking one

AH ... Me thinks it goes in the top,  if you have a replacement key you will see the hole where to place the transponder in ???

If not bust the old one up and dissect the thing..

Of course, once removed you could always put a bit of shrink wrap on the chip and keep it in your wallet (or inside pocket of your riding jacket etc).  Then you can use any replacement non chipped key and save some agro and money at the same time.
