?'s on Diagnostic SW packages

I am very curious if there are any programs and wiring harnesses that could hook up to my PC in my garage to spit out all types of data on my K1200R.

Does anyone use any "home grown" pc programs / wiring harnesses to get codes / mapping / ecu info / ect from their bikes?

Any information would be great. I am a technonut and would just like to "know" what is going on inside my bike and possibly "see" the things the techs are seeing.

Cheers! - Walt

Couple of guys here were discussing something along those lines, but I'm not sure of the model of the bike. Do a search for ODBI (or is it ODBII?) and you might have some luck with that.

Our bikes don't use any of the car standards like OBD11 where the protocols and connection info are all in the public domain as per EU rules (they didn't include motorcycles!). BMW/Bosch own the IPR for the diagnostics on our bikes - and guess what, the kit costs dealers mega bucks.

You'd have to somehow get information on a) the interface - what pins on the diags plug do what b) the protocol used - data speed type, any translation c) The structure of the data 'spit out' and what it it means in real terms, including the ABS functions. And if there are chip reflash functions, make sure you didn't poke the wrong bytes in and do a chip reflash by mistake.

If you find this info, I'm sure theres somebody who'd write some code to spit out the stuff you need. I've thought about doing some experiments, but preferably on somebody elses ECU!

These people are the furthest ahead as far as I know, but they told me there is some on going R&D work to get the GS version fully functional with other bike models.

Too bad you're not here in the U.S. - there's an ECU currently up for auction with about one day to go.
