I have a 2014 commander XT 800.
Lately I have been experiencing problems when I turn the key on to prime and start.
I am using the performance key mostly. The readout on the dash says " Bess Key Not Recognized"
I can turn it to where the headlights are on ( first spot) and it doesnt do it.
This happens fairly often. I will turn it to the off position and remove the key and insert it and try again. Being that it doesnt happen in the first (lights on) click of the switch makes me believe it is in the switch. Could be the key though. Doesnt happen with the work key.
Is it the key or the switch?

Clean your key with some alcohol. Spray some wd40 in the key hole. See if that helps. I do it about one or twice a year to prevent a similar problem.
