Read data quickly
Immo off and write back to ECU
Nothing changes 2 days later.
Immo off failed.

Third Try:
Read immo data to to write key

Load data to Tango, VVDI2, TM100 key programmers, all failed to write key.
These devices support old BMW motorbikes with 46 chip only.  None will write a 4D70 chip key.

Last Try:
Finnaly I was told by some motorcycle experts,  the TMPro2 (Transponder Maker Pro) is a motor beast.

Directly connect device with laptop via USB port, don’t need extra power supply.
Software is multi-language available (Bulgarian, English, French, Portuguese, Polish, Hungarian, Spanish, Serbian, Italian, Czech, Chinese, Greek, Turkish and Romanian). Here I tested the Chinese version.

There are 211 software modules available currently, including 38 Motorbike modules.

It is said that it is THE ONLY tool in the world that can make key for keyless BMW motorbikes.

It can still used as a chip programmer if don’t buy any software module.

There are several BMW motorbike modules depends on years.

For R1200GS, you need to purchase module 191.
For BMSX or BMS2K or BMSMP ECU – to see where keys are stored you must check what is on ignition barrel.
If there is IMMOBOX UNIT – keys are stored in this unit but not in ECU.
