key fob question?

I was in a metric dealership last week looking at a couple of used RG's. On both, the main batteries were dead and the key fobs were lying in the fairing pockets. Will leaving the fobs on, or near the bike run the batteries down? Thanks.

There's no reason it should. They may have just been sitting on the dealer's floor for so long that the battery died. The other possibility is that they were trailered to the dealer incorrectly. Some people think that putting the key fob in or on the bike when they trailer it will prevent the bike from thinking it's being stolen and setting the alarm off. The security system doesn't work that way and if trailered like that for too long will drain the battery by flashing the blinkers. The security system has to be put in transport mode.
