There's a procedure to recode new keys, so the immobilizer let's you use the new key, if (and only if) you have the master key (red). Look at this PDF:
http://www.wotmeworry.org.uk/manuals/Gilera%20Nexus/Gilera%20Nexus%20500%20Mk1%20Workshop%20Manual.pdf

Look for "Setting the Circuit" in the PDF.
Good luck!

I'd remove the triangle panel on the bars to see if it goes, if not the plastic around the clocks sometimes makes a noise too. If its the handlebar plastic to fault put a piece of blue tack under it, around the clocks may need to wedge something between the faring and clocks.

Try looking for a kink in the line where the line meets the handle bars, should come apart by removing two screws from the underside. As this is a common kink point and can be seen with little effort.

Check the side stand kill switch. It kills the engine so that you don’t start out with the side stand down. If broken or out of adjustment, it would kill the spark. Check for a broken wire at the side stand switch and coupler. Try moving the kill switch by hand. If that doesn’t work then wire a jumper around the switch to bypass it. Check the fuses. How good is the battery? Try a jump start from your car battery. Is the handlebar kill switch on? Check the operation of the ignition switch and all kill switches with a volt ohmmeter.

You definitely need to change all with a kit of : ECU, engine main switch, seat lock and you will get in the kit 3 new keys, 2 black and 1 red.The black ones need to be programmed from the red one at a dealer's workshop.Then store the red some place safe.
