May sound dumb but was the replacement battery fresh?

You may have to also re-link the fob after changing the battery.
While standing next to the bike, press & hold the fob button for 10-15 seconds until the security system responds with two turn signal flashes/siren chirps.

Any chance your fob is near another electrical device? They can cause interference. On my road glide, if I put my fob in the glove box that my amp is near it won't start.

You can also try taking the fob out of range (50 feet), then coming back in range. I've had to do that more than once. One of these days I'm going to swap out the tssm for a tssm and be done with this pos alarm.
