my red key was stolen off my person. I was never supplied with a blue key from the previous owner. I've imported a new red and blue key which came with the code card. The immobilizer will not accept the keys. What can I do?

Aloha and welcome to the forum from Hawaii. So sorry about the theft. Hate people who steal. Code card is useless. PM JimH a member on here and he'll hook you up. His site is allmotorcyclekeys.com. I'd shoot him a PM and discuss your problem. Go to the members section on here and type in JimH. It will bring up his info and just hit PM and send him one.If anybody can help you he can. Good luck.

the CDI (immobilizer) is coded to your original key set.

you will need a new CDI to go with that key set.

there are a few places that you can send your CDI to and they can regenerate a coded key for you, but with cost, shipping and down time you're probably best off just buying a new CDI seeing that you've already got a new key set.

best,

You will find a six digit number on it that tells you what it is, most likely 584701, a $150-180 (plus whatever import taxes or duties you pay,) part if you have an honest local dealer You definitely want to get the same number that you currently have, swear softly under your breath at Magneti Marelli for complicating things merely to complicate them, and program your blue key when you get it, then leave the red key at your mother in laws house, or somewhere else you only go if you absolutely have to. Malossi also makes a replacement, that is probably about the same price or cheaper, and will, if you do nothing else to the engine, perform pretty much like the stock part does.
