2014 Skidoo snowmobile DESS tether key

Hoping to not spend 400$ at the dealer on keys and see if it is possible to clone a few back ups.

This is an integrated snowmobile tether + RFID key.

Still in SKID level knowledge with my new flipper but here are the RAWs if anyone has any ideas.

It seems unlikely this can be done with the flipper from what I see so far. The key is also a safety switch so there is some kind of continuous communication or contact required.

Thanks for the info. It will let you start it without direct contact but has to be very close. Without contact it has a rev limiter so the clutch will not Engauge.

I read up on it and I saw reports about a little part that is in the fob. Apparently it frequently breaks and comes out. That part seems to need contact to actually drive them. It’s a very interesting system. I see they make a special fob that can be programmed to run the Skidoo at a reduced power which is intended for those learning. I wouldn’t be surprised if the Flipper could be used to start one but I doubt it would ever be possible to use it to drive one.

Yeah they break a lot and it is nice to have multiple, however dealers charge 400$ for new ones and make you drag the whole machine down there before they will program one for you. I am mainly looking to purchase blanks for $50 and clone my current one to some back up keys.

Want to bump this as Snowmobile season is coming.

I just want to be clear I don’t want to use the flipper to be used as the RFID key fob. Rather I would use it to clone some backup keys to used to blank fobs.
