Good day all...
Been riding my 899 for 3 weeks now. Suddenly E lock error appear after fuelling. Bike failed to start. Had the bike towed to the dealer.
Dealer cant seem to figure out the reason of the error. And the error now starts to come out and disappear by itself.
Anybody have the same issue and care to share???
Thanks.

From the owners manual:
E-Lock = Electronic Main Switch Set
E-LOCK control unit faulty communication/operation
E-LOCK control unit general malfunction
(Immobilizer) key-antenna malfunction

"If the key is not acknowledged upon Key-ON and once the starting check routine is over, the following will happen: - if the PIN CODE function is not active, the instrument panel performs the initial check, displays the Standard screen with an E-LOCK error warning and does not allow accessing the SETTING MENU, except for the Error page (ERR); if the PIN CODE function is active, the PIN CODE function page is displayed on the instrument panel, allowing rider to enter the release code"

So I guess either the key or the security electronics that detect the key are screwed. Either way the dealer should really be all over it. I'm guessing you haven't set a pin code for the bike?

I thought that the PIN was the code found on the black tag of your second key...

Either way, something isn't consistently communicating correctly between the immobilizer and the chip in your key since it seems to fix itself. Have you tried the second key to see if you can eliminate the problem altogether? If it works without issue, you need the dealer to fix your main key (easy). If not, then I guess they need to do something with the controller on the bike (PITA).

Keep us posted!

No, you set your own 4 digit code in the menu (manual gives all the details, you can download a pdf of it if you don't have a physical copy). I did it first thing when I got the bike home in case that ever happens to me so I can still start it.

The code on the black plastic tag is for having another key made.

i can confirmed it is neither the key issue nor the pin code related issue. For now, ive been riding my bike like normal. Only thing if the error appeared, i will just wait for a few seconds/minutes before i turn on the key again and it will work like normal.
So, im guessing its either one of the followings:
E-Lock = Electronic Main Switch Set
E-LOCK control unit faulty communication/operation
E-LOCK control unit general malfunction

Anyway, made my appointment with the dealer next week for them to check my bike thoroughly. Will update u guys later.
Thanks.

Picked up my bike last week from the dealer. They concluded that it was the issue with the ignition switch. They made the replacement which mean that they also need to replace the fuel tank lock and rear seat lock since there is only one key used for all the locks.
End of story. Hopefully don't have to face this kind of issue again.
