Hi,
Can you use a standard OBD 2 checker like you would on a car ?
The connection is the same and supposed to be to “a standard” .Curious.....Rowle.

Depends on the OBD-ll protocol of the unit you're using, some of them aren't Can-Bus capable.....and some others which you'd think were cheap/nasty seem to work fine.  :027:

Just a suggestion:

I spit the cost of the GS911 with some fellow BMW owners in my neighborhood.  I set my service interval to 10000 miles, and I haven't been bothered by it since.  :082:

Caution, though:  There is a limit to how many individual motorcycles can be paired to a single GS911.

The GS-911 "Enthusiasts" edition can take 10 different VIN numbers. I've had mine for 3 years and only had it on 3 different bikes. You can set the service reminder interval to pretty much whatever you like. Motoscan will only allow you to set a maximum of 30,000km but l think only 12 months in advance.

i just bought the equipment and reset the light for 10 year or 50k miles so it never comes on again in my ownership. i dont need a light to tell me to service my bike.
