Welcome.

It is likely the switches are the same part number and you can confirm that by looking up the numbers online for both bikes. There is usually a part number on the switch also.

First, are you sure you have an immobilizer system? The immobilizer system is not used in the US so this is just what I've gathered over the years from other posts.
If it does have the immobilizer, then yes, the ECM needs to see the correct chipped key to work. I think a dealer can code it as I recall.

There are two parts to your issue. The physical key tumbler and chip.

To keep things happy, could you take apart the old switch and just swap the tumbler assembly into the new switch?
That way you could keep your original key with the chip that the ECM likes.
