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.

Not sure exactly what you mean, but I tried having a non-chipped key with the chip 'close' by and it didn't work until I found a 'sweet spot'.

Might sound daft but as I am getting on in years I'm having great difficulty getting my leg over my new (2013 Mk1} CBF without catching my boot on the pannier.Is there a special technique or do i need to get a hoist installed.

Tape the old busted key to the top of the new key.
Take my advice or not, I really don't care. I'm just telling you what I think and would do on my bike.
