Can you use the moto scan to function the ABS system when doing a brake fluid change ?

I don't believe Motoscan has this function...yet.

GS-911 is the way to go if you need to bleed the system through properly at home.

Cheers Smithy.
If I go the GS-911 route , will I be able to use all functions via the app on my iPhone ? Or do you have to go through a laptop ( Mac or PC ) . Thanks

I use an I-Pad but your phone will be fine, assuming you install the app.

Motoscan does have the ABS bleed function now.

Does anyone know how the Motoscan app gets updates, as and when they increase the capability of the software within it? Do you have to download an update, or does it do it automatically? I can't find anywhere to manually do it, but I may have missed it!

The Google Play store will automatically update it, like it does for other apps, unless you've explicitly turned off auto-update
